I need to know if I mounted this on correctly...the other pictures I have seen of this installed look like that the caliper is closer toward the inside of the rotor...i just want to know if its right. Am I supposed to remove the inner most washers?

It looks like the rotor is running thru the middle of the brake area. Is it? Then you are good.

its kinda hard to see if the whole pad is catching it or not...

It looks about the same as my BB7 installation, I think you are OK. In any case you cannot remove the washers. They are necessary for caliper alignment.
