what CBR does this rim fit?

So I bought this rim thinking it would fit my 2008 CBR1000RR. It's a CBR front rim but when I mounted the rotors they were just a bit wider (by a few mm) than what my other front wheel was. And although the front wheel would mount to the bike the front brake calipers would not line up to the rotors without dragging. Basically the machined surfaces that the rotors tighten down on are just a bit wider from left to right than my 2008. So what did this one come off of? And can I have it machined down to make it fit my 08?

If I understand what you're saying, could you just use thin spacers to move the calipers a little wider or would they have to be pretty thick?
