K5-K8 Galespeed Wheels & Brembo Calipers?

People who have K5-K8 1000 Galespeed wheels and Brembo calipers, have you had problems with brake disc spacing?

My friend had the same problem with Brembo HPK calipers and Galespeed wheel with his K5 1000 as I have now with K9 1000 front end, Brembo M4 and Galespeed wheel (K5-K8).

Right side brake disc is aligned pretty good but the left side too much to the left and almost touches the caliper. This is not a problem with stock calipers because the stock calipers have wider gap between the sides.

It's not a problem to fix this. Just need to machine down the wheel hub's brake disc contact area on the left side.
