Hi, I recently tried to install this on my stock in-board disk. The axle would not go through. I have 2 axles on hand, 11.97 and 11.99. My stock backplate diameter is 12.09mm. The vietnamese made hydraulic backplate axle hole is 11.89mm. It is powder coated.

Returning it back to the UK vendor from Canada is a pain, and then I dont know if the vendor who never checked the part when they received them, will do it when they send me a replacement. I dont like it when vendors use the customer as their quality control department.

My tendency is to clean out the powder coating and if that is not it, then drill out larger (its not carrying a load at this spot).

Any one else ever run into this issue and did you open the hole up larger?
