To make my rear caliper fit the PVM rims, I have had to use a couple of spacers to make it fit.

But in doing this I now have a 5mm offset for the OEM TLR tension rod that connects the swingarm to the caliper.

My options are to bolt up the caliper and tension rod as per OEM design and space the rear disc 5mm, or make a custom tension shaft.

Can any one see anything wrong with this, (see pic) as I'm thinking of doing something similar :)

That picture looks familiar.

You will only risk problems if the hanger flex's or when running a floating rotor as far as a major offset anchor point.

You could always go one step further and float the hanger.The problem to solve on a 2 into 2 exhaust is the R/H midpipe.

Whatever you do the most important thing is to center the caliper accurately. Most companies say within .5mm

Harris also uses the type of torque rod you have pictured.

If you space the disc, you might need longer bolts.

Or make a hanger that does not need a torque arm, slot it into a swingarm bracket.
