I have searched this forum and all I found was that the Psylo adapter works. I just tried it, it doesn't. Any suggestions?

The Psylo adapter is for the 2002 and older JR-T

The Psylo adapter is for the 2002 and older JR-T with standard QR not the QR 20mm axle. Here is the Hayes adapter for the Psylo and 2002 and older Jr-T http://www.bti-usa.com/item.asp?item=HY8813&searchtype=partNo&showOnly=
The adapter you need is the standard "IS" 8" rotor 20mm thru-axle 110mm spacing. Here is the Hayes adpter you need http://www.bti-usa.com/item.asp?item=HY8814&searchtype=partNo&showOnly=
If you are using a different brake than Hayes use a "IS" 8" rotor adapter for 20mm thru-axle 110mm spacing hub. If your fork is a 2004 Marzocchi Z150-SL, Z150-FR or Z1 FR they all use the 20mm QR which also uses the standard "IS" 8" 20mm thru-axle adapter. The 2004 Z1 FR-SL has standard QR drop outs.
I hope this helps,

Well, I think you're asking about the quick release version of the Z1, not the 20mm thru axel version, correct? "8" Adapter for 04 Marz FR QR"

So, then it depends on what brake you have. Is the brake a 74mm post mount or 51mm IS mount?

It is the most recent post mount..74? and it is a Z1 FR QR. So I gather there are two different 8" 20 mm adapters? I tried to use the 8'' hayes adaptor but it was too wide obviously. Is this what he is talking about above with the hub spacing?

Is your fork standard QR or QR-20? I am thinking yours is standard QR which would be the same fork as my Coiler Dee-Lux has, and I have been thinking about doing the 8" rotor swap as well. What do you plan to do with the QR axle keep it or trade it out for 10mm solid? If you plan to trade it out, what solid axel will you use? I think there were some other threads regarding this but didn't see the info I needed when I did a search.

There is a International standard 20mm thru-axle 8" rotor fork 110mm hub spacing and a Internatinal Standard QR 6" rotor fork 100mm hub spacing. Marzocchi in 2004 have the Z1 with 20mm thru-axle with QR levers mounted on the fork that swing down to remove your wheel. The 2004 Z1 also comes with International Standard QR for 6" rotors (this one has 9mm drop-outs). Rock Shox makes the Psylo which has a 20mm axle but it is designed to use either a International Standard adpter for a 6" rotor or a special Psylo specific 8" adapter (not a International Standard 8" Adapter). Many people use the Psylo Adapter for 74mm post mount brakes on the Marzocchi 2002 Jr T, but I don't know if they use it on the Z1 QR 9mm drop-out fork.

And the big question not yet asked:

Which brake are you using?
2002 Hayes HFX Mage I believe. The caliper is the same as every other hayes caliper I have seen, with the exeption to the el. As far as swapping out axles, I was thinking about going with the Hadleys and using their 9mm through axle. Does anyone know whether or not there is an aftermarket axle for shimano xt front hubs? The adapter listed above at price point should be the adapter I am looking for. I am surprised that I overlooked it. So that problem is solved. Thanks everyone. If there is anything else I should know, shoot. It is interesting, I could not find any information about this in this forum.

I guess you missed my previous post, ok so I didn't question the brake (made a statement), but did question the mount style :rolleyes:

"So, then it depends on what brake you have. Is the brake a 74mm post mount or 51mm IS mount?"

74 I don't think I have ever even seen a 51. Didn't they make those a loooong time ago? So, that is why I ----roll eyes---did not answer the question. :)

51 mm is the current IS standard.
74 mm is the current "post mount" spacing. There was also a 68 mm post mount in addition to the Hayes 22 mm post mount.

All of the above is why I asked "which brake."

I get it. The 51 IS is in reference to the fork right? It is definitely the 74mm post mount. This is all so simple...yet confusing somehow. Thanks a lot guys. It is truly appreciated.
