Question Stpping power

Looking to upgrade my front brakes on my 2009 , ZX10. Recomend any certain pad , or different calipers? Would like to stay with a caliper with the brake line mount in the center to avoid buying new stainless brake lines which were already installed. Mainly a street rider.

Calipers are good on your Gen 3 find a crashed 2007 or later R1 get the Brembo master cylinder its a direct bolt on for the Gen 3 and will greatly improve braking over the nissin you have. Its a shit load cheaper. Yamaha owns Brembo.

I'm looking for a cheap R1 master cylinder right now. You could as get better brake pads depending on what you do with the bike. I run Vesrah pads on the track and EBC on the street. You could also look into the Nissin Calipers that come on the ZX6r and ZX14r.

Couldn't find one for less than $200. For that price I would go with a Brembo RCS or Acccasato.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.
