Front rotor bolt pattern? - compatibility with other makes and models

Anyone knows the bolt pattern of the front rotors on the new DL1000?

I bought a DL1000 front wheel that I am installing onto my Versys 1000.

The wheel slips right on and the spacing for rotors is spot on as well but my Versys came with smaller 300mm rotors.

So I need 300mm rotors that bolt onto the Vstrom front rim.

Any luck from other suzuki models here?

Maybe a smaller rotor that bolts onto the Dl1000 front wheel?

So you have the DL1000 front wheel and need to know the bolt pattern? Have you tried looking at the wheel? Or am I missing something here?

The Vee and Vee2 have different part numbers on the front rotors though.

The OP want to find a rotor from a bike with a smaller diameter rotor that will bolt right on to a Vee2 wheel. That would require a 300mm rotor with the same bolt hole spacing as a Vee2. Just looking isn't accurate.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

You could also look for calliper spacers.

Many people put bigger rotors on bikes so you may just find what you are looking for and cheaper than 2 rotors ?

The wheel I bought did not come with rotors so I will need rotors anyway. Also the calipers arent radial so making a spacer for just 5 or 10 mm will be pita.

I would like to know the bolt pattern so I can start hunting rotors from other bikes on ebay.
