DNA front brake caliper

I have Ultima wide glide forks and tried to install a DNA front brake caliper, the caliper bracket did not fit correctly, it seems it's to wide and needed spacers to help line it up, also when lined up correctly over the rotor, the bottom of the caliper actually contacts the rotor and rubs when the rotor is turning. I spoke to DNA and they say the rotor is made for all wide glide front ends, and is made to fit 11.5" rotors. They even sent a new caliper and bracket which had the same problem. Has anyone else had this problem?

I had to use some thin washers on my front end as the caliper was sitting a bit of centre (towards the hub), fitted the washers and the wheel spins true with no problems.

Glad I found this thread. I'm using a DNA Springer Front End with the Left side Caliper. This will be good to remember. Thanks to both of the posters about for this info.
It is not what you ride but that you ride that counts and no matter what you ride or even if you cannot ride we are all brothers and sisters in the wind and in spirit.
