    Shimano Centerlock Rotors on Hayes HFX-9 Calipers?

    Can I run shimano splined centerlock rotors with my Hayes HFX-9 disk calipers? Looking at getting a new wheel set and it comes with these rotors on it.

    Thanks!

    Braking path of the Shimano rotors is too narrow. Hayes pads won't contact it correctly. The pads will grab at the rotor arms. You'll get uneven pad wear among other problems. So don't do it. If you want to run your Hayes brakes with it, get an adapter. Problem Solvers, Formula, DT Swiss, Magura, etc. They all make adapters.
