WC hard parts

Hello to all,
Although I have zipped through the forums many times in the past, looking for any bit of advise I could get, I am now a registered member and happy to be so.
For my bike history, coming off MX bikes in the early 80s onto my first street bike was a
Honda CM125. Living in England at the time..(1983) they had a graduated licensing system that only allowed me a 125 cc for 1st 12 months. I already had a Canadian motorcycle license but hadnt had it long enough to skip the program . After that long year, I traded up many times in the next year or so. Starting with a KH350 2 stroke triple then an
a/c RD400 then l/c 350. And then the 4 strokes bug got me.
Z650, Z900, Z1000 ... and then the most gorgeous thing on 2 wheels .. a GS1000SZ Katana.
It was pretty heavily modified in the engine department all on stock everything else...
Scariest fun you can have on back roads of Klent hills!
Since then I've had a Kat11, couple GS11s.. a Wes Cooley GS1000 and then the gixxers.
First was an 86 750RR.. which I got on trade for a RZ500 that i hated. Wow. What a beast. Put all those litre bikes to shame..
Now... I'm on my third WC 1100.
I love them. However... my passion always lay with the
"Streetfighter" platform. Add that to a badly beaten and abused body , the decision to strip this one came easy.
So.. on with the present problems!!
Nobody makes any aftermarket goodies for WCs. Present one is a 97.
So before hitting any fab shops. Im wondering about some retro-fit items..
Rearsets... any other bike match up? (Had a set of Yosh ones and GAVE them away!!)
Header.??
Triple clamps? ..however with this I'm thinking custom cuz I have a pair of Ohlins usd's from an RSVR.
Radiator... anyone know of custom aluminum one's
And also seem to be having a hard time looking for engine builders that do hot rod big bores and head work for these old girls.. Used to be one on every corner.
Couple pics to where im at now.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Cheers...

Re: WC hard parts

Do a search for compatible parts in the WC forum.
Get your Red R and you will be granted access to the W classifieds.
There are some companies willing to still make a full stainless system from their archives; if you talk to the right person and willing to pay there and then.

Re: WC hard parts

Few and far in between. Micron will still make a full 4-1 for this thing. Wezmoto makes a stainless brake/clutch line kits that are good. 07/08 GSXR rear shock is a nice upgrade. Radiators, unaware of any that exist. I fought cooling/melting fan issues forever.
