Just a guess, but I think you have an RM or RMZ calliper bracket not a DRZ one.

The RM and RMZ has a larger rear disc, you need either a DRZ carrier on an RM/RMZ disc.

Oh, the DRZ "SM" uses the larger disc as well.

yeah, it's an e-model converted to an SM...

thanks for your reply on the RM/RMZ point...

what is better to do, can i be sure if i get a bigger disc it will fit?

I picked an aftermarket RM disk from Rocky mountain for cheap. It is for my set of dirt rims so wear is not a primary concern

ok, thanks for clearing that up, so all this will lead to a performance upgrade, doesn't that happen more often then not? :thumbsup:
