I would file the fork down deeper, juuuust enough to get the C washer in there.

Or file the C washer to fit inside the recess.

Thanks ,I've filed it deeper it's not 100% perfect but much better,I don't want to file any deeper as it may mess my caliper and disc settings up.
C washers fit perfect also now
