Rob, OEM Trident front brakes are fixed rotors, sliding calipers. To do the 6 pot conversion you need to go to floating rotors since the calipers will be fixed. to get proper alignment with the Tokico 6 pots you just flip the spacer with the oem triumph caliper to the other side and the alignment comes within a mm or so, well within tolerances. Check to make sure your Tokico 6 pot mounting holes are 90mm apart (c to c I think) and they should fit. You will need new floating rotors (EBC makes them as well as original triumph and a bunch of fancier ones) and some follks say you need to change the master cylinder as well, but for me the 14mm which is stock seemed to work as well as the 5/8 bore which is what came on the ones with 4 or 6 pot triumph calipers. Hope that explains things.
see that Daytona Charlie posted while I was typing. Be very careful as fixed/floating makes a whole lot of difference. If you try to run fixed calipers and fixed rotors you are inviting disaster. The brakes could lock up within miles putting you and the bike in a pile on the road. Be very careful what you mix and match, especially with brakes! DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS CONVERSION WITHOUT CHANGING OUT THE FIXED ROTORS!!!!!
