Those jobs got me thinking though...
I usually ride on road, singletrack and general X-country so I rarley heat up my 160mm rear rotor which makes me think that a 140mm rotor would be totally fine.
So is it possible? Would I need to downsize my caliper, shift the caliper rearwards by removing spacers, change pads?
I've uploaded a pic so you can take a close look, I've no idea so any help would be much appreciated.

(excuse the muck, only just got in)
The downside is not that there wouldn't be enough threading in the post (they are tapped quite deep enough), but once you trim the post, you'd need a 160-to-180 post spacer (10mm) just to go back to a 160 rotor w/ std. washers.
Not to mention losing a bit of caliper adjustability with no conical washers.
I have done this with noissues whatsoever, but never trimmed the post by a full 10mm just to save the caliper washers.
The weight saved, for once, will not be worth the list of negatives as a result.
