Default 2005 Rear Brake Rotor

I pulled my rear wheel today to get a new rear tire installed and had the idea to upgrade the rear rotor to a floating rotor to match the front. Going back through the first 51 threads I found one where the OP used a 2008 floating rear rotor, 2008 caliper, 2008 rear caliper mount and spacer on his 2016 Sportster.
Anyone know if a 2008 rear caliper mount will fit a 2005?

Should, check on the part number will tell you how far back, in years , that part is applicable for. I’ll go look, be back unless someone is quicker than me.

The rear rotor part number on your2008 is good all the way back to 2000, hope that helps you.

08 what? 08 Sporty? You have the same caliper as an 08 on an 05 (as far as I can tell anyway, the pistons are identical between 04 and 08). Bracket changed due to the swingarm change in 08 though.

The only justification I can see for trying to convert a 16 to an 08 is that 14 went to a 10.5" rotor instead of the old 11.5" rotors. Pretty sure the new calipers run a different piston bore though, so I doubt the difference is all that worthwhile... I've never felt the rear underperformed though, on any of the Sportsters I've ridden.

If you are talking about an 08 Sporty, just grab a floating 11.5" rotor and you're done. I've got a fully floating EBC rotor on the rear of my 04 right now and it works great.

Didn't think any of the stock brakes used floating rotors. Not on rubbermounts, anyway.

Floating rear rotor is an accessory part Folkie.
Thanks Rocketmangb, 41500110 fits also but I like 44359-00A better.
I'm changing the rotor since the original is grooved, might as well update to a floating rotor.
When I drop off the rear wheel for tire mounting I'll see if the local dealer has rear caliper and M/C rebuild kits in stock.
I need to order Lyndall Z+ pads and I'll be good to go.
