What front end/brake/wheel swap options for Gen1?
« on: September 03, 2016, 11:36:46 AM »
I've got a 2000 Hayabusa.
Wanting to have two sets of wheels, one for street and one for track days, so I don't have to keep changing tires back and forth.
Also, I hate my brakes even with performance pads and stainless lines.
And kind of wanting to go with lighter wheels if I end up doing all this.

So is the GSXR front end swap with R1 wheels still the favorite option?
What is a good year/model GSXR front end to look for? 

Not looking to spend a LOT of money.  So Brembo/Ohlins is definitely out of the picture.
Racecraft springs is about all I'll spend on the suspension upgrade other than stock GSXR forks.

You need gen2 busa front shocks, zx14 calipers, 2,5mm spacers for brake rotors and spacers under calipers. And you have very good brakes. And you need radial 19mm brake master cylinder. And gen2 front fender
