GSXR 1000 6 piston calipers and MC Score! advice please

well i am in for the whole caliper change out. $100 so far
i would like to prepare and maybe know if a RC 51 master cyl would be a worthy improvement.

best pads?
best MC
best rotors

i would like advice and choices for new rotors my stock ones have a slight warp.
i think the last owner forgot about the disk lock

can i just use the GSXR master cylinder as a set?

who can help me make sure i do this right my life is at stake and i would like to be through in my pursuit of improvements.

Thanks for taking the time to help me if you able!
ian

Sorry, but I am confused - your thread title doesn't match the body of your post - have you purchased the Gixxer bits? If so, they bolt on with std rotors.
If you do a search, you will find that the 6 pots are considered more bling than performance enhancing, but still better than standard.

EBC Pro Lite rotors, Vesrah RJL Pads, RC51 Large bore MC
is what I would do if using the GSXR 6 pot calipers and needed rotors, pads and a MC.

thats the stuff i was looking for! thanks E.Marquez!
is there a certain type of RC 51 or year?
i am picking up on a preference of many of you for Vesrah RJL Pads can some one explain why these are superior not really questioning the recommendation just curious why they keep rising to the top of the heap.

You're looking for an SP1 master and because they work is the answer to your second question.
