Question Twin disc upgrade

Guys, about the twin disc upgrade

I bought the right hand fork slide which gives me the extra brake caliper, the extra disc and disc carrier


1) do I need to buy both of the sliders? Reason I ask, one fork axle hole is approx 16mm the other approx 21mm to accompany the axle, with one larger side obviously. But both my stock and recently purchased sliders have 16mm no more 21mm hole. Someone suggested to me "turn your axle down to 16mm right through. Is this ok to do? Does the 21mm part act as a spacer on the one end???

2) I will obviously need longer bolts to accommodate the second disc carrier? I'll have a proper look tomorrow just thought I would throw the question out there

Photos tomorrow of my freshly powder coated frame :-D

Any assistance is greatly appreciated guys!

*-*-*-* sorted guys - figured it out, the supplier sent me the LH side fork slider as opposed to the RH side slider...I'll get that sorted today *-*-*-*-*
