    8 Inch rotors on coiler

    I have been taking my coiler for some DH runs and i found that i need to step up to 8 inch rotors. What do i need, besides the rotrors, to do this? More importantly where can i buy the parts i need. I have done some searching and found i need an adapter but i cannot find the right one online.

    The adapters for the rear are pretty standard, but the adapters for the front are based on what type of fork you own. Marzocchi and Rock Shox usually use the same adapter, where as Manitou uses a different adapter. Also if you have a 20mm front axel you may need a different adapter. Typing this I'm being very vague, but going to your LBS and testing a few to see what works is really the best method.
    It's not a good ride if you don't scare yourself at least once.

    I've done this on my Coiler, upgrade kits are widely available in either +20mm or +40mm, you will need to go for +40mm kit, this will include a rotor and adaptor, just bolt them on and away you go!!

    I think this will work. You can contact them and they should be able to tell you. I am pretty sure the front and back of the Coiler are IS.

    qr front forks have problems

    with upgrading to 8in rotors. I have an 05 coiler which comes with the drop off fork with quick release axel. Hayes does not make a 8 in adapter for the qr so i had to go to avid 5s and even then they dont recomend8 in rotors. so i slapped avids 7 inchers and all is well

    I'm running Hayes Mag with 8 inch rotors front and rear on my bike with the stock fork (for now anyways). The adaptor for 20 mm forks seems to work.

    I got an 8" rotor and an adapter for my Coiler. Little disappointed. I thought it would make more of a difference than it did. Time for better brakes, I think.

    I have a friend whose 03 Stinky came with QR's and 8" Hayes rotors. No problems there....and I run 8" rotors on all my QR front forks with no issues. There are adaptors out there to fit just about anything you like.
