I was answering "pester's" post, not trying to re-visit your quandary.
I am sorry that came across as uncalm or as "beef" it was not intended that way.

I was mearly trying to clarify that my intention was not to beef up the rear alone or trying to stop the bike with it primarily. The only reason I brought up the rear was because it eluded me to the possibility of a direct bolt on upgrade for the entire system since I could remove the larger rear rotor and use mine I thought that the rest of the system might be interchangeable. And if I was buying new rotors for Front and rear anyway this would be the time to do an upgrade if it was fairly easy instead of end up wanting to do it later and having to buy a second set of rotors in the near future. Looking back at my initial verbiage on the subject I can see how that might have been confused I was not clear enough on the fact that I knew the fronts were more important but It wasn't an issue in my opinion because it was a parts question.

And like I said I do appreciate your opinion on the braking system upgrades. But I am a little confused by your recommendation, You said to get a radial master of an 01? But didn't say to get the calipers as well or did I read that wrong?

Sorry for all of the nonsense in this thread

No, I said I have a radial on my '03 with stock calipers. The radial brakes didn't show up until '04 on the GSXR, and they weren't that great- a lot of my friends changed their '04/5 mc for Brembo units, or even radial mc off other brands of bikes- until '06, the GSXR radial mc's sucked.

The stock '01-'03 GSXR master is a good one, and works very well, I just happened to get a smokin' deal on a Brembo radial and love it.

The SRAD mc is a fine piece, but if you wanted to upgrade, might as well get a radial mc. Unless you change the forks, you won't be able to mount radial calipers to your bike. You can find radial mc's in bone yards like Sam's Cycle Salvage in the Heights.

No harm, no foul here, and I'll repeat my apologies to you as well
