Brakes question GSXR1000 swap to 2008 K8

Help please. Does anyone know if the late model GSXR1000 brake discs and calipers are interchangeable with the 2008 "Busa.

Thanks,

Ziggy

The K8 uses radial calipers, just like the 1K. You wouldn't gain anything from it. You money would be better spent getting ASV levers, EBC HH pads and SS brake lines.

I have run my K8 on a road race track with that setup more than once. It's pure sweetness under any conditions. I have yet to experience brake fade.
