Just thought of something...brake related.

So I'm finishing up my IH Yakuza Bakuto. I ordered the Hayes MX1's with 6 inch rotors. From the factory the bike came with 8" rotors. Will the 6" and caliper mount right up to the manitou fork, or do I need some kind of adapter. I know I don't need an actual adapter for the mounting, since the Hayes are meant to bolt directly to the fork, but I know when you move up to 8" rotors you need an adapter to bring the caliper further out.

Does that make any sense?

No the calliper still does not mount directly to the fork wheather it be 6 or 8 inches, but 6in adapters should be coming with your order, so no worries.
