Re: 1998 17" wheel conversion - sticking front brake?
You're better bet is to space the calipers in than the discs out. Longer bolts and a few m8 washers, or better yet some lathed flat spacers in one piece.
Spacing the discs out runs the risk they won't sit flat, then you get warped discs. Remember the "Flat" is flat to within 0.2mm of runout, I dobut washers are made that accurately when you need to add the error over a stack of them.
But you're even better bet would be the VFR800 wheel with later Fi-type blackbird discs, which appear to fit without spacers or mods, just new wheel spacers, or existing ones with some m20 washers if you're feeling really cheap.
