Use the search. You'll find more than you can read.

The search function will bring about some answers...particularly a list of all the calipers that bolt straight on. I can't remember what the topic was called...but it brought about a list eventually.

...I just rode a VTR today that was equipped with stainless steel lines and all I have to say is WOW!! That front brake was kickin chicken!

There was actually an entire thread devoted to this exact topic. I'm to lazy to search for you, but you should find it.

Here is one option- CBR600f4i calipers/master will bolt up with just a little grinding. Huge improvement in power & feel for very cheap if you hack ebay (got mine for 100 clams with master & steel lines)
