1100R forks/brakes

#1 PostAuthor: scotty m » Mon Jul 02, 2018 9:36 pm

can anyone tell me the distance between the front brake disc and the caliper mounts
the eliminator forks i fitted look exact in every way to the stock ones but my brake caliper mount bracket touches the disc when i tighten the bolts, i was thinking maybe because the eliminator has a different wheel size or i have the wrong calipers
thanks

if you have the steel carrier they are the correct calipers

From fork leg mounting lug to disc is 14mm (caliper removed for measurement :idea ), caliper mounting bracket is 6.2mm thick, these are as close as I can get give or take .0*mm

Measurements were taken a couple of times so they're pretty accurate I hope
No longer searching.......
