It must be the approach of winter, but I really want to build a new rear suspension for the R. I have a Penske and I love it, but I know most people do not want to spend that much. I have no idea what the final cost would be, but I'm thinking $500 might be possible. Shooting for a triple adj and a link. Let me know if you are interested, and I'm sure an S version would wind up being a by product of this.

new rear suspension

By triple adj and a link are you shooting for a shock and link group buy build or do you have something else in mind?

I am at least interested in the possibility of being able to adjust the rear up and down. :eatcorn

Speaking of caliper brackets, there is a guy on the RC51 message board at Speedzilla that made a set of caliper brackets to convert the standard brake setup to accept a radial brake setup.
If this is what you guys are suggesting Vandriver build, I am in as well if he can make one work.
Then we might be able to use a newer GSXR 1000 radial brake caliper or equivalent Brembo unit.

Vandriver.Adapters like that would work work.Hell I think I would take 3 pairs of them.I mentioned the idea to a friend and he was very interested.He has a 1998 gsxr 750.Those brake adapters would cover alot of years in the gsxr world as well.

I could go either way. An entire fork bottom is nice and a lot more complicated. Adapter plates for the Brembo Goldline 4-pad calipers (conventional mount) would be more than enough for me.

I've got some Brembo Goldline 4 pots & Brembo adapter plates (not for sale), I can always fire up Autocad and produce a drawing if anyone's interested.
