OK, did some measuring;

I'd bought a GSX-R 750 front wheel - some sort of anniversary model IIRC - really neat sweep pattern on the rotors.  And the rotors are indeed 300mm - drat. Fancy new-in-the-box rotors are not in the budget.

In other words, they'd need to sit ~10mm lower in order for the brake pads to make full contact with the rotors.
