This has been resolved. The ZR7 and GSXR both have 300mm rotors on the same spread. All I need is a set of bushings that will allow me to use the ZR7 axle in the GSXR forks, which a little notch on the left side to center the ZR7 speedo drive.

I haven't had a chance to pull it all apart yet...but soon. My head bearings show up tomorrow.

It's going to be running the 2003 ZR7 axle in 2005 GSXR600 forks. I'll post the measurements when I get them.

For the record, the RC30 ran a cable drive off the countershaft sprocket nut.
