Well you can shim at two different spots to get it all lined up.
- You can shim the actual rotor to bring it out away from the hub/wheel
- And you can shim the caliper away from the fork lower to center the pad carrier section over the rotor.
First thing I would do is remove the calipers and zip tie them back out of the way, no need to pop the lines if you don't have to.
Then I would get the front wheel with the rotors installed and centered between the fork legs, this may take mix and matching and even trimming the 919 and VFR/CBR spacers to get it all squared up. I use a few measurements from the wheel lip out to the fork legs to make sure everything is centered up
Next remove the pads from from the calipers then try to reinstall the calipers, if you find it needs to move out away from the fork leg use some stainless washers as spacers to get it all squared. If you have to shim it out a fair bit you may need new bolts to keep them in safety.
Get the wheel on then get a few pics of the setup, odds are it only needs a few minor tweaks.
