it all depends on how much fabrication and money you want to spend.

the rear rim will need to be drilled for the gsx-r brake rotor, you will need to have spacers machined to exact specs to fit the r1 rim in the gsx-r s/a, you will need a new rear sprocket, and the have the rim drilled again for that. plus, you will have to make sure the sprocket offset is the same on the r1 as it is for the gsx-r, that way the chain will run true. and all that is just for the rear wheel!

as for the front, the biggest problem is the brakes. you will need to have the front rim drilled for the gsx-r brake rotors, and again make sure the offset is the same between the 2 bikes so that the brake rotors run straight through the calipers.

my opinion? save your money and buy aftermarket wheels designed for the bike you are riding. do you really want to risk ruining the only connection between your bike and the road?
