06 front brake system

Okay, I got 06 forks and brake system on my 05 a while back and now trying to get levers. The thing is my front master is nissin and calipers are Tokico. I've been told that the 6r's had the nissin setup. Now how is the 06 10 really setup? I have a little nipple that goes into the brake lever which the 05 10 didn't. Not sure which bike to get levers for... 06 10 or 06 6.

Stock setup on my 07 is nissin master and tockico calipers. The nipple on the master cylinder is just an additional bleeder valve. I think certain year 10Rs have radial master cylinders and others did not, I know my 07 does. I just swapped my stock tockicos for the nissins that come on the 6R and 14. So far I am very happy with the change though I have only had the bike out around the block. I’ll know more once it warms up around here and I can heat them up.

No but that is something great about the south. this is actually the best time to ride. Throughout the year is fine but the jackets wants to stay off. Helmet, gloves, and jeans. I'm the "I'll faint if its too hot" type. sucks cause I love my jacket...

On topic though, so ordering 06 10 levers is safe? should be the same as 07 right?

06-07 levers will be the same, and I actually believe they are the same as the 6r as well. Check pazzo's site and compare the model numbers
