Hi
I'm after larger front dual discs for the 'nightwing'. From what I have searched so far is the cb900 discs will fit and are 296mm.
Are there any bigger discs that would fit?

I'm using 2008 cbr600rr forks and calipers, with original cx hub.

The difficulty of your project has increased since the fork/caliper combination you have already determins the rotor diameter, and your choice of hub will set the mounting bolt pattern. So you now need to find a rotor the correct diameter as the cbr system with the same mounting and offset to match the CX hub.

why not use the 2008 cbr600rr wheel? I discovered that 1985 suzuki gsxr wheel is the same dim axle as my stock 82 silverwing... i liked the idea of keeping the matching wheels, but the stocker is 19". it wont clear the fork brace as is, and looks wrong on my build, so ill be using the whole gsxr front end, thanks to all balls.

i have a made up spoked 17" wheel which i want to use. thinking of getting the correct spacers made up and going for cbr954rr front discs which are 330mm, which will allow for the spacers i have on the calipers.
