I have a set from a 996 sps that was taken off with about 700 miles and was replace with the Brembo Narrow track rotors. So I have this laying around still in very good condition. Email me at [email protected] and I will send you some pics tonight.

From what I know at this point. Narrow band rotors will not fit the 916 unless you convert it to a 65mm offset. Either by upgrading the forks, or I believe there are adapters available to use the narrow band rotors. The snow flake rotors fit from what I hear. At this point I am debating on just upgrading the forks, calipers along with the rotors.

So it is an adapter for calipers and nothing to do with rotors?
SB2000 was asking about snowflake rotors, then talking about changing forks and calipers and rotors. I think someone is confused about something.......maybe it's me. I didn't think SB2000 was looking to use narrow band rotors, I think he's just looking for some stock rotors with the 'snowflake' carrier pattern. I don't think the rotors pictured are narrow band rotors.....the rotor looks to be the same width as any other rotor. The rotors pictured came stock on some 998's and should work on any year 916. Narrow band rotors are expensive and require the correct calipers, also expensive. The rotor is offset farther from the wheel as well, and I don't know of an adapter that mounts the caliper further out on the fork leg. If there is I'd like to know. As far as I know they only came on the 996R and 998R (I may be wrong). At any rate, if SB2000 wants to use the later calipers with the 65mm hole spacing on his '97 916 forks, he'll need some adapters like the ones I have for sale.
I believe they will. Check the offset and compare to the ones you're using now. I think narrow band rotors have 10mm more offset from wheel than other rotors. But as far as the calipers go, if you have a '98 or older 916 and want to use the 2-pin 65mm hole spacing calipers, you'll need some adapters, or newer forks.

See those rotors?......same ones that are pictured in this thread. These are snowflakes http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors...=WDVW (not my auction)
It's just a preference of which carrier you like best......I think there are about 5 different variations of carrier design that have shown up on Ducatis in the past 10 or so years...
The older ones with the 40mm hole spacing have a single pin holding the pads in place, the newer ones with the 65mm hole spacing have 2 pins for the pads. Then you have the 4-piston 4-pad calipers that most of them come with now (999's & 749's). Also the 4-piston 4-pad that are radial mount, but you've gotta change out your fork bottoms entirely to use those on older bikes. Not cheap either.
