Boxxer standard was 205 on a 6 or 5 bolt rotor for dh4, e4 and m4

Then went 200 for Mono M4 and 203 for subsequent brakes

You can get a 225 not sure if it fits a Boxxer but maybe super monster type fork

Could it be the caliper then?
Diametre wise i think 225mm would be about spot as the caliper is missing about 10mm of the depth of the rotor
I need some pretty serious spacers aswell :shock:

You have the wrong caliper son

Boxxer is a #6 only - always has been always will be

#8 was a 185 rear or 205 rear with +20mm mount

Maybe it does but the M4's were designed to with 165, 185 and 205 so you may find it grooves the brake pads a bit running 2mm undersized disks..
