Hey guys, I just picked up a 2008 Enduro as a rolling frame, stock suspension and wheels. I bought some SLX disc brakes, complete front and rear from Blue Sky for $109ea. with rotors, 180 front and 160 rear. The rear bolts right up and the disc lines up fine, just need a longer hose now, the 1400mm is too short.
Anyway, here's the real issue. When I tried the front, the caliper when resting on the disc, is about 8-10mm too far away from the fork mounting ears, it's too far in, it needs to come away from the hub. It doesn't look like the disc should be further spaced out from the hub. I know, pictures would better explain it, but I don't have any yet. I'm hoping someone might know what the issue is. Do they have offset mounting brackets for disc brakes, and is that what I need?
