What kind of gains are you looking for?

Have you thought about ss brake lines and race pads?

you will have to change the whole front-end if you want to use the 6-pot calipers (from a 1K Gixxer I presume). I've read from a Gixxer forum that says the 4-pot is actually better and cheaper on pads cost. I'm building my 03 600 track bike with an 05 750 front-end, 4-pot twin-pad calipers, Galfer rotors, HEL lines, Brembo radial master cylinder.

Additionally, I *think* the 6 pot calipers bolt up to the forks the same way- I have some at home and will check that out tomorrow for you.
thanx for the input.....these are the pads i bought(not installed) ebc hh
ss lines on the way
