    Will 185 mm rotors work on Marzocchi MX Pro fork?

    Hi,
    I've got 185mm rotors and am thinking about changing my fork to a Marzocchi MX Pro. The specs for the fork say that it will take a 7" rotor. By my calculations, 185mm is about 7.25 inches. If the spec is strict, it's a little too big. If it is rounded, it could be ok.

    Anyone know for sure?
    Thanks!
    Lyle

    185mm while not exactly 7 inches is considered a 7 inch rotor. 205mm are 8s and 160mm are 6s. The fork should take it but you will need a bracket to relocate your brake caliper.

    What type of bracket? My brakes came with several, I'm hoping it is one of them.
