alright boys, I'm going to need some help with the next bit. I need to figure out what front end I have so I can source brake lines and fork seals and the like.
I believe that I have a Gsxr 750 front end from the 90's. I found a very helpful website with pretty detailed photo's of gixxers through the years, here - https://www.totalmotorcycle.com/modelhistorytimelines/Suzuki-GSXR750-1996-1999-Page5?d=1

It seems that the earlier front ends have Nissin brakes (which I have) and later 90's years switch to Tokico. However, my Nissins are attached with a custom made bracket so i'm not sure if it's much of a qualifier. Suzuki probably used this front end for quite a while but I need to be certain to avoid buying the wrong parts. I'm hoping that there's a 90's GSXR fan on here that can help me identify my front end and possibly source the brake lines I need.

thanks brothers!

Looks right to me. You can also buy the components at Summit Racing and build your own brake lines.

Pffft, Summit is my secret weapon! I live 15 mins from their headquarters and i'm there all the time.
Yes, advCo, they're definitely pretty similar. Hoping someone knows for sure what year the front end is so I know exactly what parts to buy.

Start taking measurements and compare in the table...

Measure the OD of the forks at the lower tree.

I think the 1100 forks are 52 at the top and 750 are 50, both are 54 at the lower tree. I think all Gsxr forks 2004 and up are radial mount calipers so that quickly eliminates those.

You are probably running the correct caliper to the forks but because it looks like GS wheels they made an adapter to fit the rotors.

That fork style are found on ‘92-93 Gsxr600W, 90-95 Gsxr750, and 90/91(?)-98 Gsxr1100’s.

The calipers point to earlier years. The custom caliper bracket is most likely due to the brake rotor being smaller than the stock Gsxr rotor because of the wheel swap.
