Picked up some parts from e-bay.



I got the front calipers for 65.99 ea. and the rear for 62.99 with buy-it-now.



I got the forks for 169.99 for the rh and 145.99 for the left also buy-it-now. I guess he thought that this little scratch was worth taking 20.00 off.

I am going to put them all on the 90 1100 as well as the NOS yosh rear sets that I got for 150.00 last month. should work great with the Ohlins rear shock and perfect stock Wht/Blu bodywork.
Does any one know if the 1000 tubes will fit in 93-95 750 clamps? I have a black Yosh upper tripple that I think would look great with these forks. I can check when they get here a week from now but would like to know now.

Just an FYI (confirm with dealer/1000 forum):

Apparently, the GSXR1000 forks use a zero weight fork fluid (not really the same as the SAE 0w, but what the fuck). What I heard from a dealer was that it is a no-no to just clean/preen/fill with any old fork oil/fluid. It was a warranty claim where the forks were fucked and returned to Suzuki for a new pair (they did the exchange).

For the life of me, I don't know what could be so sensitive in a cartridge fork that the 'wrong' weight/make of fluid could cause a fucking meltdown, but since you aren't running on a warranty, thought I'd pass it on.
