I finally won an auction on Ebay and got a set of calipers and a master cylinder-supposedly from a 2006 GSXR 1000.
Here's my question, the calipers are made by Tokico, I know that's right, but the master cylinder is made by Nissin. Huh?
Is that really the way Suzuki does it? Different manufacturers for calipers and M/C? Or have I gotten skrewed?

It is indeed a Nissin Master Cylinder - the 2006 should be a Radial MC whereas the older ones were conventional
Also 2006 calipers will be black as opposed to gold on the K3/4

I don't believe the Triumph MC is radial even on the later 05+ series so you will need a new lever to go with the Suzuki Radial MC.

It's half of a Jardine slipon system. I made the connector pipe from part of an old Suzuki SV exhaust.
