Gsxr forks...
Cbr forks....

No matter what they are.
“Upside down” forks looks the dogs nuts on any older bike. Shame people want Ł300 quid plus for a old pair. Seen bent pairs go for Ł100

Realistically, there are only two Japanese manufacturers who supply the 'Big 4'.
Some of the manufacturer build requests are a bit weird though.
The picture of the Blue Kawasaki few years ago with fork leg snapping is only unusual because it was captured, the screwed on fork bottoms often came loose and leaked, I saw more than a few with cracks developing (and I 'don't do' Kawasaki's)
