Replacement Calipers

Does anyone know any 4-piston front brake calipers that will fit the 'Strom?

I'm going to be installing stainless steel lines, and I figured while I was doing the work, I might as well upgrade the calipers, too...if I could find something to fit on eBay.

So, what will fit? They're the same 2-piston calipers as the Bandit 600 and the Katanas, 55mm between bolt centers on the forks' brake mount tabs.

I'v sort of looked at the idea. You realy want to go 4 pots of a earlier GSXR ar Bandit 1200. Now I dont think any 4 pots will bolt up but just have a machinist make you addaptors, I'v done this quite a bit on some project bikes few years ago.
Vstrom sure can use a set of 4 pots thats for sure.

IMO the brakes are sufficient for the type of bike we ride and tires we use. HH or HH+ pads will allow you to stop with one finger as opposed to two with less applied pressure.
