Hi all,

New to this forum- not sure if this is the appropriate subforum, but here goes: I am adapting my 1983 virago xv920 to take a R1 forks that is mated to a R6 five spoke (and five hole) wheel, much like the first picture below.

However, I've run into an issue with the brake rotor and I'd like to ask the experts on this forum what to do with the brake rotors, which on the R6 is 310mm, whereas the R1 rotors are 298mm in diameter, correct?

See second picture attached for the issue I'm encountering.

The R1 brake rotors have 6 holes, correct? So I'm potentially looking at having custom rotors machined? Anyone have similar issues?
