believe the caliper is from an FZ1, rotor is from an fzr600. as far as weight... its  a LOT lighter than a stock one, thats all i remember.
Thanks! On my 350, I have a drilled stock disc (saves maybe 150 g) and an alloy repop caliper from EC. Caliper is great, and a lot lighter than stock. I am considering a custom ISR disc for the stock carrier, but the weight saving potential is limited to 450 g/ 1lb or so, due to the pad track width. Going to a 4 pot caliper would allow a much lighter disc, even at a larger diameter. Will have to ponder this a bit......

You can save a little more weight with your setup if you get some aluminum pistons for the caliper from Eric at oily pipes gang (202wagon). The stock rotor can also be thinned  down, I would have to measure them but iirc I took mine down to 5mm.  The carriers can also have some material removed but it's not a huge weight savings in them.
