GSX-R Fork Compatibility...

I'd like to install a fork setup for radial mount brakes on my 03 750. If I use the complete front end from an 04/05 will my stock front wheel and rotors work with the new forks and calipers? I'm having trouble finding rotor diameters for the 04/05.

Any help would appreciated.

Pretty sure the rotors on yours are larger. You'll need spacers for the calipers and the rotors.

Been doing some research this weekend. All I need is the forks themselves from any 2003-05 GSXR with radial brakes, The calipers themselves with hardware, 4 10mm spacers and have Motorcycles Unlimited dial it in.

This should be the cheapest/most noteworthy improvement on braking performance I can do. The Forks are @ $300 shipped on ebay all day, 50 bucks or so for stock calipers and a few bucks for the spacers on ron ayers.

The only thing I'm unsure of is the master cyl. Ill have to look at one off an 04ish to see how it bolts up.

I don't know if I agree with that. For a streetbike, a set of good pads, a radial master cylinder, and some braided lines should be WELL more than enough. The advantages of the radial mounting of the calipers really isn't noticeable until you're doing track-like braking.
