Yep, even the GSXR750's have six-inch rears since '96.

Thanks, guys. Been riding Yamahas and Ducatis for twenty-five years. I'm a bit in the dark with Big Red. Love my CBR, though. Trumps anything else I've ridden. Appreciate your time.

Until some monkey throws a 300 on there "for good looks"

If the bike isn't braking properly, you don't start by rebuilding the engine.
