99 brake caliper on a 2000 fork?

Im wanting to mount a 99 brake caliper onto a 2000 front fork.
Ive tried everything I know but Im running out of ideas.
The hole space on a 99 caliper is 3.5 but the hole mount on a 2000up caliper is 2 3/4.
Is there a adapter bracket that will mount the two onto a 11.5 rotor?
Any ideas? Has anyone else done this before?

You can match any caliper to any situation I believe.

I have done most of my brackets or adapters from 1/4 steel. If there,s more space or availability I would use aluminum.

The key is to position a caliper where you want it to be, making sure it doesnt sit on the rotor bottoming out( when you mark the holes you should lift it off slightly)
Do the fork mounting side first, It,s typically straight. Caliper side will often need a cut out, it doesnt have to be precise, but as close as possible. The mountings holes should be surrounded by as much meat as possible.

Drill hole one at a time, . Transfer them using precise sharp transfer kit.
If you lucky, you will need just flat steel or aluminum . If this space between the fork and caliper is not clear 1/4, 5/16, 3/8 sickness of flat metal, you might need to shim a caliper mount.

If the suffices overlap, you may need a thicker plate and machine the surfaces so they from the side look like runic letter s( in SS)

I ordered a 84-99 front wheel. For a single 11.5" disc left side.

What I got was a 1977 front wheel made for two 10" front discs.

So I had a adapter plate machined on one side to fit the larger inner mount hole.

It also had to clear the spokes so I needed longer button head grade 8 bolts.

I used a 4 piston Ultima caliper and had to change the mastercylinder(Yamaha)14mm bore to a master cylinder that was 11/16 bore.

But now it all works! Easy! Lol
