    Is it the latest XTR model? It should install without any adapters needed.

    Latest model XTR's don't come with IS mounts.



    The following thread shows that it can be done.

    Link: My ghetto rigged XTR IS (M965) to post mount..

    To use a 160mm rotor you'll need a 'short arm' front 160mm/rear 140mm caliper
    The minimum rotor size you can use with the 'long arm' front 180mm/rear 160mm caliper is 180mm

    The following 160mm adapter would be needed to use a 160mm rotor with the 'short arm' caliper and to use a 180mm rotor with the 'long arm' caliper.

    The caliper on the left is the 'long arm' front 180mm/rear 160mm
    The caliper on the right is the 'short arm' front 160mm/rear140mm

    Nope! I guess it is a 2-3 year old XTR. It is a IS mount. Bolts go in sideways to the bike. Horizontal to the ground.
    I need something to adapt IS to post mount.
    Txs!
