Can you fit 172 brakes onto a MK1 16v??

  GSXR 600
Anyone know what the differences are?? think they are 280mm disc? but are the calipers the same? if they are is it the carriers which are different?? or is it the hubs??

what would I need to fit the 172 brakes onto my mk1 16v?

cheers Tony.

I've got one £40. Its from a Full fat 172 182 Cuped packs are different but only in relation to hub spacing nothing related to brakes.

Yee 16V 1.8/1.8/Mk2 phase 2 (excluding RS amd 1.2 8V models) and mk2 phase 1 1.6 16V calipers are the same

172 calipers are the same as 182 and some Megan models plus last shape Megan 2.0 models.
