    HOPE MINI 6"or 7" & 2006 AM1 ??

    Anyone running this combination?

    Or,anyone running ( original") Hope Mini with 6 or 7" rotor on 2006 AM1?
    ( I don't see the 7" rotor that I have working )

    So.. I need to go to 8" as per Hope.

    Verbally, MARZ rep and local shop advises " don't run 8" rotor on 2006 AM 1, this after the Marz rep telling me the reason that the 2006 AM1 has a "post" mount is because it's stronger.

    Marz manual states: must purchase adapter from brake manufacture to use 8" rotor.

    I asked MARZ rep to produce anythng in writing that says " no warranty", not recommended" or "will void warranty" if 8" rotor is used, he does not have anthing saying any of that.

    His shop tech advised there has been 10 cases of broken axle or forks in 10 years with the use of a 8" rotor with a QR fork, no idea how many were 32mm forks, I suspect not many.

    ** Yes, I 've read many posts from "search".

    Just really looking to see if anyone has run 6 or 7" Mini with AM1 2006 Model.

    Thanks

    Just use the 8", its not like your caliper will have 4 or 6 pistons or anything.
