rotor swap?

I have a 01 gsxr 1000 and was wondering if a set of front brake rotors off a busa are interchangable they have the same stamp on the side but they seem a little thicker than the gsxr. does anyone know

inspect

Make sure to inspect the rivets /pins that hold the two rotor pieces together for damage and or excessive slack . Also check for warped rotors !!!!!!!!

Ok the rotors are swaped but the wheel is not spining freely the brakes are dragging for sure and the rotors are not warped or bent what else could be wrong? i took the calipers off and the whell spun freely. so i am sure its the brakes that are dragging, but why?

Take the cap off the reservoir and lay a rag over it so it won't spray back.
Hit the brakes a few times while spinning the wheel.
You may even want to lightly tap the calipers with a rubber mallet to shock the pistons back.
If the rotors aren't warped that should take care of the problem.
Give me a call if that doesn't do it.

Is it possible for the forks to be slightly bent where it would cause the calipers to be misalligned? Causing the brakes to drag? What about caliper gapping can this be adjusted?
