OK....yes not a problem mating it to fit those elongated slots. Those are very similar to my calipers. They work well considering how inexpensive they are. I should have gotten aluminum back when I mounted my brakes and made my own brackets. When you bleed the brakes, make sure before hand that the rotor is centered in the pads. I forget which brake it was...front or back, but one of mine was off center. It makes the brake caliper feel really spongy. It's kind of like the line has air in it. This morning, I crossed a railroad track and a piece of bailing wire got caught in my front rotor between one of the pads. It did the same thing. All of a sudden the front brakes were totally soft. As soon as I removed the piece of wire, the brakes were back.
