so you are the guy on the left huh?? (j/k)


And thats it bolted in place. the only prob now is that the caliper is so big, the wheel hits it.

if the difference is minimalistic then you can cure that with a spacer... right??

BTW... very nice work

Well the 280mm disks did fit with the 9mm spacer, but that meant i now have to get longer wheels bolts, but the TSW rims use bolts with a large Allen key (cap screw) fittting and they aint that easily available.

then i found out that i could get the GTC/Corsa OPC (VXR) 308mm disks for R1400 - about 140 US$ per set - so i bought them, these should push the calipers outwartds by another 14mm which should mean a smaller spacer will be required.

Pictures to follow.

Well been a while

I got the 308mm Corsa OPC (VXR) discs/rotors also modified to fit the 4 stud hub, ran a 3mm spacer and then put bolt spacers onto the alloy block to push the calliper out to fit on the larger disk.

Brakes are freeking awesome, nice pedal feel, and bits when you want it, very progressive and controllable.
