    Yep,

    You have to Modify the spindle. Check hawkgt.com in the FAQ.

      the spindle is modified to accept th evfr wheel, It mounts fine when the rotor/nuts are not present, but the nuts hit the flange on the new wheel. Looks like there is plenty of room to clearance the wheel, just wondering who else may have seen this?

            Mine went that way too... the rotor nuts interfere with the face of the VFR rim. The solution is of course some time with a grinding tool on the inside of the casting, making four half-moon pockets deep enough to clear. TIP: There is a notch on the spindle edge, fill it in with white paint, and always align the valve stem to this mark. That way, if your relief pockets clear the nuts one way, but hit the nuts in other positions, you wont be trying 90 / 180 / 270 degrees to find the position that you know fits.
