Yes! Glad I help contribute to this feat, looks sweet!

Is that a 19" wheel??

What's the plans for the rotors?

It is 19" wheel. For rotors I've got a set of these http://m.ebay.com/itm/99-07-SUZUKI-HAYABUSA-GSX1300R-ROTORS-FRONT-BRAKE-DISC-WHEEL-OEM-STRAIGHT/252966078859?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
Using 5mm caliper spacers to match diameter and I've got the adapters designed up and ready for cnc.

Sorry I totally flaked out on this question, I actually never saw it, but yes that sounds correct

No worries! I measured and did the math a hundred times and it seemed to make sense :).  Thanks to you and all on the thread for all the help thus far!

I've ordered my rotor adapters - I got 4 instead of 2 because it's more cost effective.  If anyone here wants to do the EXACT same setup i can sell you my extra 2 at cheaper than you might get on your own (unless you have your own access to cnc).  In any case, PM me if interested.  I gotta wait 17 days to confirm that they actually work, so maybe wait till then :)

Adapters have arrived and looking good.  They fit on the wheel, and the rotors fit, so that's good... now let's see if i measured the widths properly :)

Have you guys ever installed bearings on a comstar wheel....where as you're pounding one bearing into place the other one starts pounding out if you don't put the retainer in? That's what I'm saying is the concern....the wheel is essentially free to move across the outer race of the bearings without the retainer in place.


 That only happens before wheel has axle and is fitted in forks. When fully assembled the various spacers hold bearings 'down' to base of recess
