I'm sure I'll mess up along the way at some point so why not point it out and make me look like an idiot (this is my first custom bike afterall)

That'd be me

Looking forward to seeing this come together!

Is there any issues in using a bronze bushing for a wheel spacer fitting between the bearing and the forks?

Seeing as you can get aluminium spacers, I can't see it being too weak. Are there any potential issues through corrosion or dissimilar metals?

The spacers that I have from the speed triple are aluminum, I know they need to be milled down to make the caliper alignment on the disc correct.

These are what I'm contemplating buying. They're nice and cheap (lost my job this morning) and will give me a better guide for the spacer length that I need.

I used some alu tube to make spacers for my front axle... 25x35 sounds familiar, I can check what I have left over. You need about 50ml of spacing total?

Sorry about the job, hope you get something else fairly quick.

Thanks cookie, I'm back working at the biker cafe (route 59). I worked here before I worked at the butchers.

Thanks for the offer of the tube but yantosh is sorting me out with them ( I dont have access to a lathe)

Discuss pro's and cons with that please. I think custom yokes will cost more than new discs
This website can help you search for discs by bolt pattern etc, but also, handily, offset:

Thanks cookie Rep'd for that. Turns out they don't even have my size as a standard disc but always handy to know.

Turns out... don't do measuring when you've got a headache and you're very tired. Measured up the front end wrong yesterday.


I've remeasured it this morning and with the custom front spacers come the fork eye to eye should be 204mm, meaning I won't be needing offset discs and that the cbr1000rr yokes (or any 204mm yokes) should fit.
