Dual Disk/Caliper Alignment

Perfect gap.

Not so perfect gap.

We got the dual disk Brembo setup. We got one new Brembo caliper and are just going to use the old one on the left side. The new caliper is not centered on the disk. Do we need to shim the caliper bolt over a little or is something else going on?

both sides look like you need to shim between caliper and fork leg Dave... center up the part line in the calipers

Hard to call without seeings things up close, Dave; but I think I'm with Steve on this - and he has way more experience than me. FWIW, I had to shim the rear caliper on my Laverda RGS to get it to line up in the middle ...
