    Here's one with an R1/6 caliper:



    Really, you could make anything fit if you have access to a CNC to make an adapter plate. The biggest issue with 4 piston calipers is the inner side of the caliper can foul the spokes. With a mag you can trim these down as well as shaving some of the caliper. You could also get a more offset disc if there is room.
