No. You have two choices, machine the forks or machine the calipers so that they centre over the disc (the bolting centres are OK).

I went some distance down this path and decided that I was not comfortable with machining either the fork legs or the calipers and I intended to make an adaptor to fit the 4-spots I bought.

Then I went a different way and am in the process of fitting a K100 front end to my R65 - although my early K-bike front end came fitted with the later Brembo 2-spot calipers (F09s?) the 4-Spots will bolt straight up unmodified, which sort of solves the problem - if in fact I can be bothered fitting them as the twin 2-spots provide all the braking you would ever want. It will come down to which off my collection of master cylinders is able to be rebuilt at the lowest cost - if 13mm then the 2-spots get the gig, the 13mm master cylinder needs a lot of work I will bore it out to take a 15 or 16mm piston and use the 4-spots.
