    What adapter for 755 caliper & 8" rotor?

    Anyone know the part # or where to get one? I have the old 755 XT hydro brake set, and want to run an 8" rotor up front on my marzocchi QR 20mm fork. I've looked around and found nothing on this.

    Thanks

    Mmm, is that an older 4 pot one? If so, GRC used to have rotors and adapters.

    Ya the 4pot, I just got a rediculous deal on a new one.

    I tried calling GRC, no answer and emailing, no responce. Does anyone know if that adapter will work on the Maverick fork?

    I tried the A2Z adapter for another set up, but it wont clear the Mav fork tab w/o filing which I dont want to do.

    ... and if we just ...

    Here's what you need...Shimano Part # Y8B 298210 which is the Shimano XT DH 8 " (203mm) adaptor for Marzocchi QR 20 fork.
    These guys should have what you want or, your LBS should be able to order it for you.

    Thank you, that's what I was looking for. Those are some exspensive adapters compared to Hayes........That shimano adapter is around $30.00

    If you have a problem getting an adaptor, I had a Shiver SC which is a 20mm thru-axle using XT 755
    DH calipers and I believe it's the same adaptor. You could have this one as I don't think I'll ever need it.
