    This is from oldschoolsuzuki.com

    here is a guy that is running radials and upgraded brakes on ED forks.

    looks like 1st gen 2.75x18 wheel with various calipers/rotors (front and back) on GS1100ED forks/swingarm.

    after further research the rear wheel is Bandit 600 17x4.5

    besides the above mentioned parts, I'll guess at what it takes to do this; .......probably:

    caliper mounts
    F rotor spacers.
    underslung brake ar mount on swing arm
    530 chain conversion
    rear wheel spacers
    front wheel spacers
    15mm ID Front axle bearings
    radial tires

    http://sandmteam.blogspot.com/p/our-bikes.html

    Chassis
    Frame: GSX1100E standard with bracing to increase stiffness
    Suspension: Ohlins SU143 x 330mm length twin rear shocks
    Forks: Katana 1100 front forks with custom pre-load adjuster, compression & rebound
    Brakes: Honda CBR600F calipers with standard master cylinder, ZXR400L twin 300mm discs & Performance Friction brake pads front; Bandit rear caliper with EBC HH pads
    Wheels: GSXR750 18" front wheel & Bandit 600, 160 x 172 rear wheel
    Tyres: Avon AM22 Race front tyre and Michelin Pilot Race rear tyre (Medium compound)


    Some more info from Longy.........

    Hi Jim

    Front wheel goes in but you need to adapt the spacers. This is a bit fiddly and resulted in a couple of washers! In so far as the brakes, they are straight off a h*nda CBR600F (the twin pot variety). You need to have made up special brackets to hang them. The discs are 300mm off a ZXR400, but you could probably use 310mm if you made the caliper hangers to suit.

    Wheel bearings as standard.

    Hope this helps. Good luck.

    Longy

    The only bike i can think of offhand that had a 3 spoke 18" rear wheel was the gsx1100g shafty from somewhere around 1990, cant remember the front size though
    Tone,
    The much sought after and rare 88 GSXR 1100 wheels are as I listed them:

    18x4.5" three spoke rear
    18x2.75" three spoke front

    These are what I have on my ED with

    170/60-18
    110/80-18

    Do you know anything about the 750 Katana wheels & frontends that fit ? The front & rear wheels on my 83 GS1100S are the 3 spoke with 120/70ZR17s up front & 170/60ZR17s on the rear

    So you have an 83 Big Kat with stock forks and 17" wheels? Got any pictures of the setup?


    Most any GS suzuki front end will fit the frame, the issues is wheels, rotors and calipers and if there is enough room under the fender.
