Or T500.

Are the T500 and XS650 drums identical?

Sorry, when you wrote T500 my brain saw XT500.  I know what both T500 and XS650 drums look like and have one of each in my storage.  Now I not sure what brake that is, although it might be a bit narrow for a T500.  I'm confused now, a minute ago I thought it was a disc brake off of a Norton :)

Pretty sure the Yamaha had the 6 holes in the hub which I don't think the Suzuki had, but happy to be corrected on that.

 The ribs In the center look like a titan to me. The holes could've easily been added later

It is certainly possible to start with an XS1 drum and cross drill the flanges, but easier to start with a T500 Titan/Cobra hub which is already cross drilled and simply drill a few holes in the plate.

The XS holes are larger than that drum. 

Besides, why fit a Yamaha brake to a Suzuki?  Who would do such a thing?

More to the point, that's way more braking force and way more unsprung weight that cure little bikes needs.  At least it's less likely to overheat and crack than they do on a bigger bike, so that's a plus.

I found a few nice 2 bangers at the Melbourne DGR ride today. I spotted a rare NSR400 too but didn't manage to get a photo. I have never seen a NSR50 on the road before!
