Two possible suggestions.
1) use some ZeroPower chips. These are basically static RAMs with a battery
glued on top and are pin compatible with 6264 62256 style chips which will
be Ok if your using a 1541-II drive as a starting point...
2) mirror the ROMs with some RAM, use M-R and M-W to store the new version
from the C64, then switch out the ROM when the device is idle
