Pretty sure the rears would be the same for the 11-15 as well as the 2016 bike. Fronts may be different for the gen5, but front wheels are easier to R&R than the rears for me. I have to pull the rear wheel off twice as often as the front. I got a set of captive spacers and caliper bracket from Fast Frank Racing. I just put it all together on Saturday and it was much easier to reassemble than using the stock parts. No spacers fell out, the caliper bracket couldn't fall out of alignment.

I had my head up my ass for about 15 minutes trying to figure out how it was supposed to go back together before I realized that I needed to take the chain guard off for the tire to fit past the caliper. Duh.

I got mine here. Kawasaki ZX10

His kit is so expensive.

Do you think the captive caliper with wheel guide is worth the extra $50? Being able to to hold the wheel without the axle would be pretty awesome.

I'm happy with the purchase. To me, it was worth the cost.

I've had more than one instance where I needed to get the bike back together quickly and was getting very frustrated with the caliper bracket and the wheel spacers falling out of alignment. I'm talking about racing and track days. For street use, where a tire lasts for a month or more, I don't think it's worthwhile. If you regularly ride on slicks and have to switch to DOT tires for a superstock class, it's worth it. If you race or do track days in the rain and keep a set rain tires handy, its worth it. If you don't normally change tires at the track, it's probably not worth the cost unless you get aggravated easily while changing your tires.

....if anyone can get me the dimensions/drawing, I'll whip you out a set in 7075 for shipping/beer money. Turning a few sets of those on the lathe would be good stress relief.

Anodizing is on you, though, if you want it. :)

Attack life... it's going to kill you anyway.

You could make some money off of those if you got your hands on a set.
