my disc's look the same as yours. I wouldn't worry about the spindle hole position as long as the wheel and discs sit even in between the legs.

Exactly, and if there is any difference, the wheel should be the one to be dead center. Any minor difference in rotor spacing will be adjusted out by the caliper sliders.

I'm glad I saw this thread. I have an 05 with cast wheels. They did grow on me over the years, but I do like spokes better.

Tony, yes parallel to each other is what you want and the right amount of preload on the bearing. Those two things together. Did you read through my entire thread here? If so, you see I was trying to figure how much "extra" spacer each side needs. Calculating it should put me close, but checking it afterwards is too. No way to know if the new bearings are exactly in the same, etc. I could take the left spacer out and cut a bit off of it. I added .090, could take it back to .060 over stock. That would put me ( theoretically ) about the same as the right side as far as distance from the leg to the rotor. Could you measure your distance from the rotor to your lower leg as I did?

You guys are missing my point, I guess. I'm using the rotor to fork measurement to determine if the wheel is centered. It's an easy place to measure from and I don't expect there to be any difference side to side as to where the rotors mounts on the wheel. So it is my constant. I'm looking for that measurement ( from someone ) to see if I have the bearing loaded as I should and checking mine side to side for centering of the wheel.
