    Hayes 8" on '04 Z1 FR SL QR

    I had a RS Psylo with an 8" adaptor for Hayes (p/n 98-15604) that I transferred over to my '04 Z1 FR SL. It works, but is adjusted all the way to the inside, which sucks. I went and double checked on Hayes (web and called) and they only suggest an adaptor for 6" rotors (p/n 98-15068) on the QR version of the Z1. I was completely under the impression that this fork was OK for a 8" rotor, but Hayes says that there are safety issues, and won't reccomend the correct adaptor to put on the 8". I'm pretty peeved. Hayes recommends a 8" rotor for the 20mm axle version of the Z1 (adaptor p/n 98-15069). I'm sticking with the 8" rotor, but I'm wondering if I should buy the 20mm adaptor and see if it fits better, or stick with the Psylo version that is speced for a QR fork? They look the same in the manual drawing, but I can't really tell.

    Thanks for any advice

    how much is the part?

    If it's affordable, just buy it and put it on. If it works better then cool, if not, just sell it on Ebay.
