I only ask because the link does not clearly say what the specs are, but do say "supermoto" caliper which often means that they only fit on 17" wheels. If it fits on the 21" fine with no spoke interference that is cool news. Keep us poted, VERY interested.

I am glad you do not mind being the Guinea Pig...
Yes, it was a bit of a crap shoot on the fit since I couldn't get a solid answer on it, but it fits fine. I measure 0.27" clearance from the caliper body to the spokes - which is generous. Its still a floating type, so no pistons on the spoke side which make it thinner there.

I was looking at the PM 4-piston brakes before this one and theirs would not fit per the dimensions they gave me. I would think other 4-piston or even 2-piston opposing piston calipers would have a problem with the 21" wheels.

Im happy to be the guinea pig on this as im learning a lot. Im sure others will benefit from the info and also from some of the slightly used parts I'll be selling soon - like the YSS & WP shocks, my old KTM forks w/ 0.6 springs & Hlebo valving, Applied Racing triple clamps, V&H SS2R exhaust, etc.... I'll be posting them in the vendors section soon in case there is any interest.
