Dont know, but how wide are the discs on the XR6T? Because if theyre thicker, then when placed on thin rotors, the pads may get to a point where they make no contact at all. Not good! Easiest way would be to see if you could borrow one from the wreckers, and see if it lines up?

Rotor on a BA dont carry the wheel studs. The rotor fits over the bearing hub studs protrude through. Much simpler system doesn't involve the wheel bearing when changing rotors.

To change over you would need to change the whole frontend, then change the rear so the offset matched. Wouldn't be worth the cost/effort.

Couldnt you get an ED rotor, machine off the brake part, so the BA disk fitted over the top, then make up an adapter so the caliper bolted onto the ED upright?

OR

you could buy one of the twin piston setups that were floating around these forums a while back.

I doubt that would be legal, a bit like a wheel spacer, its going to make your studs shorter.
