No, I don't think they will. I think the offset will be wrong. They will fit CARC bikes if they are the ones I think they are. I have them on my Griso.

For the Cali 1100 series there are plenty of aftermarket options from cheap and cheerful to horrendously pricey. On several Cali's I've used eBay cheapies with far eastern provenance and they have worked and lasted well but of course you pays yer money and takes yer chances. EBC do make high quality, if expensive, replacements.

I use Grimeca RSV4 rotors on my Ď07 Vintage. They saved me about a kilo of unsprung weight at the front end. Iím not certain about the year, but diameter, bolt holes, and offset match. I use the stock brake pads. Paid $200 for a lightly used pair in 2010. Photo below:



I also use Ducati rebuild kits for the Brembo calipers. My parts guy at the Ducati shop knew which to use...

Also, I find that the floating spools on the rotor carriers get dirty easily and can create a pulse at light brake applications. A little brake cleaner keeps them clean and feeling great.

Don't take my words as gospel. Do some cross referencing. I could be wrong.
