Dang! If it was the other carrier design I would be all over it.
@Makis has the Rotors I am after along with a few others like @gts455 etc.

how on earth would you mount 305s. would be a pain in the neck and guaranteed custom work. even with a radial setup

Piece of piss with a radial setup, and the main reason for radials, it is much easier to change disc size by simply changing spacers

Dan, most radials are for minimum 310. then you space out to 320. for 305 you'd either have to machine the calipers or the fork bottoms

can't think of too many radial setups for smaller than that. maybe the earlier zx10

so you skim whatever 5 or 10mm off the caliper mounts and use them without spacers for 305 and space them up for 320's

Not, i think you will agree the most taxing "custom work"

not for me, because I have access to a machine shop. but given that the 51 is axial from stock and that a set of undersized stainless rotors is hardly an upgrade from the stock ones, its custom work that's hard to justify.
