DO you know for sure that the GSXR triple won't work?

I don't have the upper, so I'll need a replacement of some sort. Currently searching through eBay for something that will match. Not 100% sure of the make/model of the forks and I'm going on only what I was told a few years back when they found their way into my shop.

On my XS I laced an 18" rear XS650 shouldered aluminum rim from MikesXS onto the Suzuki 4LS hub, with Buchanan spokes.  Worked great, if 18" rims front and rear are an option.
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

I used MikesXS wheels with my stock hubs and Buchanan spokes on the 350F.

How about electronic ignition systems? Any recommendations? A quick Google search was inconclusive.

Ive laced the same type setup. I don't know how much difference there is in the diameter of a 4ls buffalo hub and a 2ls titan hub, but, I laced a Suzuki t500 titan drum into a shouldered xs650 rear 18" wheel with stock rd350/ stock xs650 rear spokes, nothing custom.

FYI Bradj gave me this info. gotta give credit where credit is due.

For a simple street system, DYNA from Vintage smoke.

Full replacement street system PD from Economy cycle

Programmable - Ignitech or Zeeltronics

Without lights - Motoplat or Hitachi or PVL CDI  -I have all three of those available...   :-)

That's what I plan on doing with my latest GT750 4LS brake. An alternative is a TX750 rear alloy rim.
