I should also add -I had some extra fitting to do using Marzocchi forks with CRF wheel and I DID make some spacers for the radial adapter, but not the disc.

Has anyone ordered the Purte1 bracket lately and had any issues receiving it? I ordered one over a month ago and haven't received it yet, and Purte1 has not responded to multiple emails.

I'd put good money on Italian Summer manufacturing lull. I know a suspension tuner that has to order a motherlode of all his Italian parts in June and estimate his usage because the Italians take so much mid/late summer vacation it's like they turn their industrial businesses off. I was through Aosta, in Milan and headed down to the coast two summers ago there, and it seemed to be true. The touristy stuff and alley restaurants were open, but there didn't seem to be a whole lot of fabrication or manufacturing going on.

Damn, It's hard to get to the track without a front brake...just hope it's not lost in the mail. I ordered a Brembo caliper from another vendor in Italy a couple weeks ago and it showed up 1 week later DHL.

I've ordered stuff from Italy. And yes they seem to all go on vacation at the same time. The whole country shuts down. They do process your order, take your money. The nice ones will give you an estimated shipping date.

Can anyone confirm if this PURTE1 radial bracket will fit 2015 KTM 500EXC forks?

If you haven't found confirmation yet, my vote is -SHOULD fit. I have a 2015 500 EXC and I'm using the Purte1 bracket on my CRF as it happens. If I find time, I will swap it over and post up a pic. :thumbup:

I still do not have confirmation and would very much appreciate your assistance when you have time. Thanks!

Still no response from them. Maybe I need to find a machine shop locally. :damn:

Which radial caliper are you going to run? I'm curious if the left/ right spacing will be the same as what I have. And you have 310 rotor or 320? Will need 5mm shims for the 320, but you've probably already planned for that.
Cheers.

Not sure which caliper yet. Hadn't even thought about the variations in left/right spacing. It'll be a 320mm warp9 rotor on warp9 cast wheels. Hoping those wheels give me extra clearance on the backside of the caliper. I'm looking at a couple of front master/line/caliper options on bikes being parted out. Aprilia SXV or Husqvarna SMR.

Cool. 320 is gonna give less clearance right off the get go. I found a used Husaberg FS570 310 rotor 2011 that I'm running on my KTM wheel. I believe the '09 Husky SMR that I had was a 320 rotor/ caliper.
