Brake help needed

I am new to motorcycle swaps and bought what I thought was a complete set up needed for a new front end. I first purchased a 2004 gsxr 1000 set of forks. I then looked around and finally found a salvage dealer that had the rotors, mc, front wheel and calipers off of a 2005 gsxr 1000. I was assured it would fit my forks. All started off well until I tried to mount the brake calipers and found out they are about an inch away from the rotors?? Any help would be great.

Re: Brake help needed

We need some pics as "an inch away from the rotors" doesn't tell us enough.

This may help.
