Instead of machining the rim, why not machine the Mean Streak caliper bracket instead, and use the 2 piston caliper and the larger Mean Streak rotor. You can clock the caliper to about 8:30 and make a longer caliper stay, using one side of the rear 'U' on the stay. Worked well for me, and have been running the Mean Streak rear this way for about two years.
Here is the link to what I did with pics!

+1 on using the mean streak rear components. I’m with Yamahawk. I just did this myself and the conversion was a snap.

Cool!
It really is an easy conversion, and gives very good braking performance over the stock Concours rear caliper/rotor. I initially used the stock brake stay, but the caliper would hit the right saddle bag, and that made it necessary to clock it around behind the rotor, at about 8:30. I purchased another brake stay off eBay, and cut the ends off, and welded them to a longer piece of 1/2" sch40 stainless pipe, and then cut the inner ear off of the rear 'U' of the mount, and used an M12??? bolt of the proper thread pitch to attach it to the Mean Streak caliper mount. The angle of the caliper to stay is about 90 degrees, which is optimal. It saves a considerable amount of time and money, which is a plus for more farkles, too :)
