R6 calipers are a monoblock construction so generally considered better than the radial gsxrs (if you could notice the difference is debatable). I have r6 callipers on my gsxr1000k4 and they are excellent, with brembo pads, disks and RCS master cylinder stopping is like getting hit in the face with a spade. I have got myself a set of k4 forks for my TLS project and ended up with k3 calipers cause they were cheap and I was only going to ride the to on the road. K3 calipers have 4 pads per caliper while the k4 has two pads per caliper, k3 pads seem to be more expensiuve , performance wise never ridden them back to back to compare. Anything you get will be miles better than the rubbish from the factory!! ☺
Forgot to say any year radial r6 or r1 caliper will fit other than the later 6 pot r1 calipers.

So what year R6 calipers do you have?
Sorry for delay in replying, I believe it was 06 ones I got.
Any of the radial R1 or R6 calipers gold spot/silver spot will fit, year doesn't matter. They all use the same 108mm bolt spacing that is found on the K3 Gixxer forks.
