I'm sure you'll find some takers as most want to go to a bigger rotor.
And YES, a new rotor and adaptor should be all you need.
I run 6" rotors and they work great for the riding I do. I will add though that 95% of my riding is in FL. i.e. mostly flat. Our DH sections are short little roll-outs with the max height of 30' drop in elevation at a time. So, brake fading isn't an issue.
When I travel though, I sometimes wish for 8" rotors.
I guess what I'm saying is, maybe just bite the bullet and buy new and keep you 8's for the rare occasion you go do some shuttle runs.
