    Hope Saw 203mm Floating Rotors / Hope Mono M4

    I've just bought new Hope Saw 203mm Floating Rotors to go with my Hope Mono M4 callipers.

    Sadly though the rotors appear to be too large in diameter and foul the caliper body.

    There is no room for adjustment to push the calliper out any further.

    All my research would seem to suggest that 203mm rotors should be compatible with the Mono M4 calliper, so I'm at a loss, other than possibly buying 200mm rotors at a loss as I'll not get my money back on my 203s.

    Anyone suffered the same please?

    Are you using the 203mm mounting bracket?
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    Mmmmmmm, I was just bolting the caliper direct to the fork, IS to IS.

    Schoolboy error? Should I be using an adapter?

    Cheers

    Yes. You need an adapter. I think its Adapter "B" for IS to Post 203mm.

    Also check to make sure that your fork is rated for a 203mm rotor.

    The IS mount Hope Mono M4 calipers (usually black with gold bore caps) require a 200mm, 180mm or 160mm rotor (depending on caliper number and front or rear fitment) and should not work with 203mm or 183mm rotors.

    Really? Mine are running fine with 183mm rotors. And no idea where you got the colours from...

    Mine are the black and gold calipers, but lots of stores state these are compatible with either 200 or 203, but I'm sure I wouldn't have an issue if I did have the 200 instead of the 203.

    I used to run the silver older DH4 caliper with a 203 and they were fine, but I appreciate a different design.
