Aye lad..I had the same problem with the first set i bought..The hub fitment was too shallow..Im pretty sure these are the right ones as i have just dug through my purchases but give em a bell to confirm the height of the disc is 72.8..As in the diagram at the bottom of the page, Also the price is for 1 X pair and not a single disc..Ziga

Easiest way i've found is to loosen the disc retaining bolts and leave them in a couple of turns. Then with careful persuasion with a hammer, tap the bolt heads to get the disc moving ;-)

Thats on my list for next year ... get front calipers off and refurbished. then change the front discs with new pads.

are those discs the correct ones that fit the 400's ?
Just dont want to start buying all the bits now only to find when I come to do the job in 4 months time, they dont fit and I need to get different ones

Dixx I did warn you about the bleeding fella!!yes In the end I had to have a willing volunteer pressing really hard on the pedal and letting it blow the air and some fluid out at the nipple. But once done there is definitely a better feel on the pedal and braking performance. I will be taking the green stuff pads out as they are really good when hot but not really suited to "normal" road use in my opinion.

I believe these are the correct ones Chris but you might want to check the overall disc height. Thickness and diameter check out OK. Hope this helps bud.
