A while since i did similar but from mmeory they are a straight bolt in with the matching later Yokes, i simply used the matching radial calipers

It's a straight swap but you also need a K5 axle, a wheel spacer and caliper spacers (310mm K5 vs 320mm K1)

If you can choose, get K9-L1 1000 calipers. They are better than the previous calipers.
