Taking the disc off isn't hard. The bolts just unscrew. Some people will suggest you use new bolts to install it again but if they don't look that bad, you can clean them. There will probably be thread lock on them.
You could use a tap and dye set to clean them and their seats. Also, you should give the bobbins a going over like this.

Are you looking to swap the stock wheel for a different one?

Toner is correct, removing the rotor isn't difficult at all. I had mine off last year (or was it the year before? lol) for cleaning and painting.
