Okay, this may be a dumb question, but is it possible to just upgrade the calipers on our S2Rs to a nice four piston Brembo unit without changing the rotors out and get some significant improvement in braking on my 800, or will the rotors warp?

I was under the impression that a change in calipers required a change in rotors as well, but here I am tonight reading the review of the R1 in the latest RRW magazine and I say to myself 'Pete, those rotors sure look small; in fact they look just like the ones on my 800'. Sure enough, they're only 310mm (v. our 300mm) and thin at that. Then I notice they've got huge six piston Sumitomo calipers.

Anyone done just a caliper upgrade on the 800 with decent results? I don't need a super set of stoppers, but it would be nice to have a little more bite and feel than the stockers.
