GSX-R Tech Info - Interchangeability of parts within SRADs and between SRADs & 2k
Here's a bunch of stuff I've gathered from multiple sources from here (Skidmark (GSXR God), Evil-E) Gixxer.com, etc.
Feel free to add stuff or correct me if I'm wrong.
The tanks on the SRADs can be interchangeable, you need to
swap out the fuel pump. The 96-97 750 and 97-00 600's use the same tank and fuel pump (carbed), but the 98-99 750's are FI and use a different pump, with much more PSI, don't get them twisted or that extra fuel pressure will give you big problems. Also there is an extra line on the FI tanks that needs to be plugged for it to work on a carbed gixxers.
Interchangeable between all SRADs and 2k up to 2003, even the gixxer 100 rotors, all 320mm.
The SRAD wheels are the strongest rims though
Newer generation ones are lighter and therefor weaker!
SRAD 750 6.0
SRAD 600 5.5
Can't put 750 rim on 600 swingarm, too narrow.
Can put 600 rim on 750 with special spacers
To put 2k rims on an SRAD:
The rear requires you to make two spacers that are easy to modify from your stock ones, or you can use two new gen rear wheel spacers if you have them... it's easy with the rear to figure out what works and trim the spacers as needed
... the front is harder.
You have to remove the bearings from your stock rims... well, just one, because you need to take the spacer between them out and use it on the new gen rim.
Next remove a bearing from the new gen rim and compare the spacers... the new one is smaller by about 2mm. You will need to remove both bearinge from the new rim and make two 1mm "washers" to go before each bearing that will allow the spacer from your stock rim to fir inside the new rim. Once you have that done, install one of the washers, then the bearing on one side... then flip the rim over and install the spacer, then the next washer, then the last bearing. THe dust covers won't fit now, so you can just toss them.
After you have this done you can install the rim and it will be just fine, but you will have to open both drains on your calipers and force your pads as wide as they will go, then re-bleed your brakes.
This is because the rotors are now approx. 1mm closer together on the new rim, but after a proper pad set and rebleeding the calipers will easily make up for that difference...
The rotors will swap on no problem... and I did mention that the front calipers are closer by 1mm, and resetting/bleading the calipers makes up for it just fine.
The internal spacer for the front rim is the only one to change. The rear rim just needs a few easily made outer spacers.
You will have to undo the bolts on the side of the stock clamp, and the main head nut on top of the triple clamp... you can use a peice of wood and a hammer to gently knock it off.... p.s. theres little screws on the clip on's... (bars) underneath that sorta align it...
The triple trees for the 600's and 750's are different because of, you guessed it, the difference in fork tube diameter. Same goes for a yoshi triple. It'll be specifically for the 600 or 750 forks. Where, and for how much are you getting a yoshi tripple tree from?!?!? Is it just the top piece or both upper and lower. Those are nice pieces, and I'd definetly do the fork swap if you get your hands on it for a good price. If you don't want it let me know the datails cuz I'm interested!
The wheel and calipers bolt on the 600 and 750 SRADs the same, so that's not a problem...
The 6 pot brakes are better stopping power.
The 4 pots have better feel
Lines are the same on both
Interchangeable between all SRADs
2k and SRADs aren't interchangeable because of different mounting hole spacing, unless you make a bracket.
On the SRADs, I have heard that the 4-pots are better all around. I have the 6 pots right now myself, and I have no complaints, but I have a set of 929 calipers and I will install them when I get my hands on some 2k+ forks since the fork borttom/ caliper-carrier is different on the SRAD's and the 929 calipers won't fit...
I'd go with the 4 if I had the choise, but if you already have the 6's then don't bother changing... you'll never notice the difference and theoretically the 6 pots will stop harder and faster, but the 4's have more "feel" which is why most people like them more...
The 2k+ 600 forks are non inverted, and the 2k+ 750 forks are inverted. They both however have a narrower bolt pattern for the calipers, so you would need brake calipers from the 2k+ bikes as well since they are different from the SRADs (but once again the 2k+ calipers from the 600 are the same as the 750) Don't get the gold 1000 calipers, because even though they will bolt on, they suck ass! ... and the rims would need some custom fitting spacers as well since the 2k+ triple tree is 2mm narrower than the SRAD version so if you install the 2k+ forks on an SRAD triple, you'd need all the SRAD spacers, and a modified 2k+ rim, or a stock SRAD rim, and the 2k+ calipers...
gets confusing eh?

you forgot your mismatched rearsets Ben

Rearsets brackets, pegs, rear brake lever, shifter levers, heel guards are all interchangeable between SRAD and 2k's. Haha I know cause I have one of each from each generation on right now! HAR!
If you have to choose between the 2k and SRAD pegs, go for the 2k pegs. They are about 1 inch shorter. The dang SRAD ones are like freeking pontoons sticking out there!
And you can't use the passenger pegs in place of the front pegs cause they attach differently.
dont forget, alot of tl1000S/R parts, as well as hayabusa parts are interchangeable. Like rims, rotors, forks, etc.
you guys know if a new gen(2000-2003) fuel tank will fit 98 750???? Feels like I got a fat chick between my legs ....I like skinny chicks between my knees !! HAHAHA !!

Nope! U think she's fat? Damn you should try out the CBR's, they like SHAMOO!
