I reckon so. No expert though. Looks like it would sit it how you have it noe pretty much.

Hard to tell from the photo but that looks like seven inch post mount as found on Maguras. You will need a bigger rotor for starters and the corresponding adaptor. If you go for a 180mm rotor you will need a stock PM7 to IS mount for example.

Upon closer inspection is does stick out a little too much doesnt it. Unless the rotor is a 140mm.

Rotor looks tiny, inside diameter isn't much bigger than the hub flange. Bigger disc is whats needed here methinks

what is diameter of disc?

that adapter will not fit in your arrangment as the callper is too close to the fork so there is no space for the adapter to go. .... but if you calliper sits further out, there would be space hence as ^^^^ say, the disc looks like less than 160 mm

you would need a custom adapter for your set up; one that bolts to the fork then sticks out sideway with a lug for the calliper and then have metaj running alongside the caliper to the other lug (adapter in photo sits in betweenfork and calliper). kinda hard to exaplin without a drawing.

There is no adaptor in the photo????

A standard PM to IS adaptor is all that is needed here with the coresponding sized disc. Nothing custom required at all.
