    When you buy the disc bracket kit, I see they come with spacers that go behind the bracket on the four bolts. I want to know the length of the spacers to make the bracket sit in the right position for the caliper to ride on the rotor.
    I am making my own brackets, but dont have any measurements for the spacers.
    Thanks
    Mike

    Mike, My spacers look to be 13/16" or 0.8125" and my brackets are cut from 3/8" plate. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I make these plates and I have always made the spacers out of 3/4" thick material.

    I will second the 3/4" thick spacers, that is what came with my brackets from Derbinator and the brackets were 3/8" plate as well.
