Mines are '89 GSXR-750, which are 43mm cartrige forks, rightside up...

Even with the clip-ons above the triple tree you still need to cut down the front fairing to fit...

You can also replace only the springs in them. If all you're looking for is firmer ride :)

The GPZ 500, the same bike as ours but in Germany has the dual brakes in front from factory, maybe you could find one ;)

interesting this topic would come up. I was thinking about putting a 636 front end on mine. triple tree, forks, wheel, everything. not much like having an adjustable front end.
