    Rotor Size On 2003 Dirt Jumper 1?

    I am looking into buying a 2003 Dirt Jumper with QR20+. I noticed that on marzocchi's website it said that the disc brake tabs were DH international 8in. Does that mean that you can only use 8 inch rotors or that it was strong enough to take a 8 inch rotor? I know it seems like a retarded question, but alot of urban riders and dirt jumpers do not use an 8 inch rotor. Does anyone have a 2003 dj1 or could someone please explain this to me! Thanks!

    It means you can use an 8 inch rotor. You CAN use a 6 inch rotor, with the right adapter. Most street riders use 6 cause thats all the power they need and its out of the way.
