maybe first gen GSXR radials? 600-750-1000 the radial brake caliper and black tube plus red lower adjuster and top adjuster will be the tell tale, upper tubes may have been stripped and polished? a good suzuki service center should be able to identify them, they sure look like gen 2 1000 forks to me only the uppers been stripped and polished... got any buddies around with gixxers see what that fender fits on... looks to me like an 03-04 gsxr 1000 fenner?

sure is a nice 1400, WOW we don't get that bike here

The radial calipers all use the same 108mm spacing so they are interchangable between model years and even other Japanese brands, only the Euro bikes use 100mm spacing (Ducati, Aprilia, Bmw, Triumph).

The calipers look like theyre off a 03/04 1000. Do they use 2 big brake pads per caliper or 4 smaller ones?

After rereading im guessing you need seals for the forks rather than the calipers.

As far as I know the gixxer 1k forks all use the same 43x55x9.5/10.5 (mm) fork seals from 2001 up to 2008.

They have two smaller pads in each caliper.
Thanks .
