maybe their QC has gotten better, I don't know, But.....

Just for my sanity Mike, being English I have never worked in decimal inches or used a digital caliper with a readout like yours.

In your pictures the Dyna rotor has a smaller number shown than the stock, how does this make it larger?

Apologies in advance for being so dense!

Those were my pics, and yes, the dyna did measure just a hair smaller,
but for all practical purposes...
they are the same.

.8090 in. = 2.05486 cm.
.8095 in = 2.05613 cm.
