When we were fitting on the caliper adaptors, we found that on one side, some forging flash was preventing the adaptor from seating correctly. This is likely just some production variance and an uncontrolled tolerance on the stock part. We easily corrected this by sanding the flash away with a drum sander. This only took a few seconds.
The spindle with the forging flash sanded off.
To prevent any chance of the bolts loosening, blue Loctite was used on the caliper adaptor bolts.
