relocation of rear brake caliper on 2004 zx10r

Hello,
Using stock wheels, has anyone found/made or come up with a solution to put the rear caliper on the bottom of the swingarm? Zx12r maybe, zx14r not, Attack whatever! Spacing on brake caliper isn't important: stock or Brembo. If anyone can fabricate (will pay through paypal) or point me in the right direction it will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

it is not possible to install a brembo rear caliper with oem wheels. so to do it you must find an underslung bracket for the oem caliper, and that will be VERY hard.

I appreciate your response and the info you've provided. There is a company in Japan that allows you to use a Bremo (less 5% of the pad area so the caliper is mounted lower for clearence) but it's expensive. I was hoping someone had a similar experience as me and I could find someone who can fabricate or modify. Again, thanks....SBK and Motogp and......Formula 1 this weekend!

Take a risk, and you may lose. Never risk, and you will always lose.

The one that Garth has requires you to have Marchi's on, I have seen PVM advertise one that you can get, but I dont know how compatible it is with the 04-05 swing arm and stock wheels.

The ZX14, I believe has a different inner rim Diameter, so that wont work.

CARROZZERIA does not make em for the Kawis.

I've had mines (ladybird) for a while but its not a perfect fit, im ok with it cause I don't use the rear brakes enough.

I know there is a Brembo bracket for the 08-10 models but that requires you to change the rear swing arm.

I have talked to Champ about making these, which reminds me, I keep forgetting to contact him for the rest of my parts. So champ, if you see this, oops.
