The engines, fuel management, gearing, are the same between the Street and the R - the only differences being an adjustable suspension, race spec brakes and different material covering the seat.

You are talking $3500 for Ohlins all the way around for a low-end set....at least.

Plus the aforementioned need to change brake calipers, would be sort of silly to blow 50% of bikes price on suspension and keep those little axial brakes.
