04-06 to 07-08 brake difference?

Are the brake rotors the same or is there a difference?

Can I put 07 forks and 6pot brakes on my 06 and have it line up with my current rotors?

Thanks

You will need new rotors and fender. The wheel is the same. The 310's bolt right up.

Doing it here shortly...

Picked up the '07 forks with Ohlins internals from RSV4 and will have them this week. I had some '07 brakes laying around. Anyway I wanted to keep my Galfer rotors $$$ and this way I can!

Done... also painted the spacers. You have to look hard to notice them.
