Brakes

I am looking into upgrading my breaks on my 06 10r. I hear that the zx6r and zx14 brakes are way better and can just be swapped out. I was also considering doing new brake lines as well. Should I do both, one or the other? My next question is what years of the 6r and 14 fit? Would it be possible for someone to list all of the parts I will need to do the swap. Thanks for all the help!!!

07-08 ZX-6 and 06-08 ZX-14 Nissin calipers will work. Stainless lines will also improve overall performance.

I would start with a Master Cylinder if you don't already have one. And yes I would co with calipers and SS lines at the same time.

The stock master cylinder on the 06-07 10 is the same as the 6 and 14. Just grab some calipers and stainless lines and your good to go.

Awesome, seems easy enough. What added benefit would an aftermarket mc get me?

That one I can't answer as I'm running a ZX14 m/c on my 04. I suppose it would be even more feel at the lever and better pressure throughout the system?

I thought just occured to me, would I need 10r brake lines, or 6r or 14r brakes depending on which I went with?
