    Larger Front Rotor...help?

    Sorry if this thread is redundant...

    What do I need to put a larger front rotor on my Turner 5-Spot?

    I have XTR hydro calipers and a Fox Talas fork. I'm thinking a 175mm rotor would work better then my current 160.

    Thank you!

    You can use our AD-486 Caliper Adapter to go to a 180mm/185mm rotor.

    Before attempting that verify with the fork manufacturer to see if they'll avoid the warranty by using a larger diameter rotor. Then you can get the adapter and install the larger rotor.

    In my case I had to jump from a 160 to a 203 in order to keep my current caliper. I changed from a IS fork (RS) to a post mount (Manitou) and had to install an adapter. For XC 203 is too much rotor but that's what works according to Shimano.
