    You will have to buy an adaptor. Depending on what fork you have.

    it mounts to the fork to allow the caliper to attach to the fork.

    can;t you find it?....sorry but I don't have time to search for a link for a product I don't use. I am not even 100% sure you will need one but assume you will to accomodate the size diff (I assume you are running 6in)

    Well, most brake manuf. will include an adaptor with their brakes or will provide you with the info you need.

    Call the shop (or online retailer) and ask if one comes with the brakes.

    I would think if you get an 8" rotor and caliper kit, it should come with the necessary adapter.
