        It's been a while, so this info may be a little fuzzy, but I believe that R1 rotors & calipers will fit the R/S lower legs.
        I love the smell of smoked pork in the morning !

          2002-2003 R1 rotors will fit. EBC or Galfer come to mind.

            If you're talking "upgrade" there's no real benefit to changing your rotors. The only time it's necessary is when they're worn past their minimum thickness. If you want to improve your brakes, before you start throwing any new parts at them, flush the old brake fluid out with a good high temp DOT4 racing fluid, then bleed them *really well*. Brake fluid is the single most neglected maintenance item on a motorcycle. You'd be amazed at how much of a difference it can make. If you're brake lines are old and dry, i.e. show signs of surface cracking or you have visible pieces of black rubber in your old fluid, replace them with a new set of stainless braided brake lines. 9 times out of 10 that's all you need.

              Agreed. Yamaha is already using the basic R1 caliper on them- though I think that might have been an upgrade that came in '04. Stainless lines would be an improvement; or if you're feelin wiley you could put the Galfer petal style rotors on there for a modern cruiser look. Pretty spendy though and unless you're really hot footing it I don't know if you'd see the value.
