...I run some fairly serious twisties almost everytime I ride it.
...but if the front wheel is off center that is not really a viable option, kind of scratching my head right now as how to go about this.
I'm not sure how off center you are using all honda bits up front...the wheel is centered on a F3 and you aren't changing that part. If you shift the wheel significantly to one side or the other, then the calipers no longer line up with the rotors.
What might be slightly different is the triple tree spread. I just measured my F3 triple tree I have here at work and it is 59.395mm between the fork tubes. I'll measure the triumph one when I get home tonight, but whatever difference there is would get divided in 1/2 and that amount added to the spacer on each side. Or not if the calipers are within their tolerance for movement. However much difference there is it can't be much since my left caliper alignment is fine and there isn't that much lateral movement available in the caliper...
I'm going with a 14mm M/C since I'm pushing dual 3-pot calipers...
