Put an 08 gsxr750 front end on and re used the sv wheel and rotors. Think the left to right spacing is out slightly as it shudders a bit under slight to medium pressure. Is there a way to measure/ space the rotor or adjust the calliper pistons ?

The pistons themselves will centralise, but they should be as even as possible.
What spacer arrangement are you using............

By "captive" you mean the one inside the wheel ? I am referring to the loose spacer on the axle...is it the gixxer one for that front end ?
The other thing than can misalign a wheel, is the bearings in the wheel. They have to be installed in the right order..... One seat completely, and the other seats against the spacer
tube, it may be a mm or a bit off seating in the wheel. On the SV the left side bearing (sitting on bike) is in first, then the right.... but on the GSXR, its the other way round....so, even if
the gap is 0.5mm, that is twice, so it puts the wheel offline 1mm...... if its 1mm, then totals 2mm......

This may sound dumb but it's not a case of swapping the bearings around is it?
Sv wheel and gsxr Axel and captive space.

I would leave the wheel spacer (captive) alone....but, if you feel the wheel is a little more one ay than the other, and if the description of how the bearings
are fitted would correct it, then go for it..... pretty much pull the "fully seated" beaing out, kock the opposite one in all the way, then refit the other.
If you can even just pull the bearing out a few mmm thenknock the other in and reseat aganst the spacer....
But, make sure of your measurements first.....measure twice.....

SORTED
Had the head stem bearings replaces and was told it was probably a combination of the head stem bearings being not bad but not good, the wheel bearings also needing some love. Had all the bearings replaced to be safe and its smooth as now. very happy with it :D
