    I reckon, Superlite 120-7431-R/L.
    Don't think Midilites can take 322mm discs.

    make sure you get the right caliper fit the width of your disc, whichever model you go for. I made this mistake (picked up some cheapys off ebay) and ive been waiting the best part of 3 months for the parts to convert to arrive :|

    They are 30/31mm thick.
    So just use Superlite 120-7431-R/L.
