    I originally thought I had found the same thing, but now not so sure. I think the 81-82 CB900F rotor is the larger 295mm size. If you have a stock CX500 caliper, it is probably 276mm. What year bike/rotor do you have?



    It blows me away how difficult it is to find measurements for various rotors online. I would think with all the cafe bikes out there somebody would have posted a chart by now.
    Here is the front end pix. I have a print of the spacers but unless you have the F4 front end they will not work.

    I'm digging that gear setup you have for the shifter. How well does that work?

    same diameter



    same offset



    as you can see in this picture above the friction zone for the new rotor is will only accept the 2 piston caliper no the original single piston one



    no clearance issues other than the little rubber boot around my speedo cable rubbed a bit (not shown in this picture)bit i just trimmed the boot with a razorblade and it fit perfect



    i also used a scotch bright pad on the inner aluminum carrier to get rid of that "pot metal" diecast surface



    parts used: from the top down

    1. stock or equal aftermarket cx500 master cylinder

    2. i recommend a steel braided brake like

    the above is optional so mroe importantly...

    3. 2 piston caliper off of a cb900F

    4. EBC brake rotor MD1036LS for the left side rotor MD1036RS for the right side rotor

    Great info! This is pinned now!



    I may end up using something like this when I run an OEM rim with GSXR750 forks. Hrm.....

    Wow that's pretty! Does anyone know if this rotor will work on a 1978 model year, or did the bolt pattern / offset change? I've got a CB900F caliper waiting to go on as well.
