Unable to fit front OZís as I did before?

Hey guys,

Iím trying my best to fit the front OZ Piega rim that I had on my old SC1000 but this time with new snowflake rotors and 65mm 4 pad Brembo calipers. Problem is whenever I try installing the wheel with the spacers it doesnít line up right. Iím able to fit one side caliper but not the other or one side rotor is too close to the fork.

Oh, and I do have the black Corse dynamics front fit kit installed sandwiched between the rim and the rotors.

Hereís what I have:









Please help

What is the offset and thickness of the new rotors versus stock ones?

I’m guessing you’ve changed calipers. You’ll need to mill the mounting faces of the new cslipers
It sounds like you are trying to position the wheels based on the calipers but you should just center them within the forks then both calipers will need to be milled the same amount
Looks like the motowheels kit spaces the rotors out. Have you tried without rotor spacers?

I actually removed the black rotor spacers and for a second there it seemed like everything lined up but as a test I removed the brake pads from the new calipers and it looks like one of the rotors is rubbing against one of the caliper sides. It seems like I need a 1mm spacer if thereís such a thing..
