03 R6 brake disc spacing

I need a favor. I'm fitting a set of 03 R6 forks onto an old Norton and I need a measurement.
Can somebody measure and tell me the front brake disc spacing on their 03 or equivalent (probably 99-03) R6? From the outside of one disc to the inside of the other.
I would really appreciate it.

Just saw this question. I'll try to do it for you in the morning. You want outside of one side to INSIDE of the other? Why not outside to outside? Just curious.

outside to inside gives you center to center. Easier to measure that way vs. asking somone to mesure center to center.

I get right at 5" with measuring tape. To verify, I used my calipers to go from outside to outside and got 5.198. I then measured the rotor thickness and got .200. So, that verifies 5" is the number you're looking for.

Hope this helps.

Thanks. It's amazing how well this is going together. I want a modern suspension with good brakes on the old Norton so I'm using the R6 forks. Also wanted to build a spoked wheel for it so I found an old Virago hub that had dual discs and spokes. Turns out the disc boss diameter and bolt circle on the Virago hub is identical to a 99-02 R6. It's 4.728 across the mounting faces so with 5mm discs the disc spacing will be just a little under 5". May or may not have to shim the caliper. In any case it looks like it'll work fine. Thanks again.
