Geant4 knows to deal "only" with ordinary particles (observed ones).

I almost SUSY ignorant, so please forgive the obvious questions below.

Are R-hadrons stable ? If so, then the particle-matter interactions for 
such particles would need to be implemented. That would be quite a work. 
Presumably, this will depend on the model(s), and as such, Geant4 can 
not provide the variety of models.

If they are unstable, with a lifetime that would not allow the particle 
to reach the first detector elements, then this would correspond to the 
typical use case of a generator, that will take care to decay the 
R-hadron, according to SUSY physics, into ordinary particles, that will 
be passed for tracking to Geant4.
For such generators, CMS experts will certainly help.
