Default XR1200 caliper to 03 883R

I have seen were some folks are mounting the XR calipers on there sportsters, all that I have seen were after 03, I know that the looks of the calipers have changed over the years but my question: Is the caliper mounting bolt spacing the same? Mine measures 3" center to center, the pic below is an example of what I want to do?

For anyone interested:
I just did this today to my brother's 2000 Sportster. The 2004+ is a simple swap, no other parts required (except brake fluid). But for his Sportster I needed a shorter mounting bolt and a finer pitch banjo bolt (taken off a sport bike). No real issues and well worth the price for the added braking performance.
