    Centerloc XT, changing 6" to 8"

    Hi I have my ML with 6" XT discs. I'm thinking that sometime I'll want to change the front rotor. What would I need to buy to do this? I there a 8" centerlock rotor I could order? I prefer not to buy an adaptor from centerlock to 6-bolt. Do I need a new adaptor for the Caliper?

    My fork is a 06 Fox Talas R, if that makes a difference.

    No CL 203 mm rotor I know of. The Saint CL it a different mount diameter.

    The DT Swiss CL to 6 bolt is your best bet.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Sorry, Shiggy; there is one and Shimano makes it.

    I have two 8" CL 203mm XT rotors and with the two adaptors, I can convert my bike to stop on a dime and give me .10 cents change.

    Purchased both rotors on eBay and the adaptors from QBP. Rotors are RT-77 and the adaptors are Shimano part #'s SM-MA-R203P/S (rear) and SM-MA-F203P/S (front).

    The adaptors and the 8" rotors are approved for Fox Fork stanchion tabs, 2005 and later.
