Those look like the calipers that were standard on my 749R. Should be a great setup. Might need spacers depending on your rotors though. Fred at Yoyodyne is a good guy, he'll help you out.

well no sooner did i post this, fred emailed me back asap and said these are 100mm calipers, zx-10r's need 108mm. so it looks like the $1500 hp's are the ones.

I didn't even notice they were the 100mm ones. 108mm is pretty much universal.

yes BC to BC (bolt center -bolt center) = 108mm

those calipers would have certainly been superior to the OEM tokicos but since they are the cast brembo versions it may be hard to decern if they perform better than the OEM nissins.

Looks like the brembo pistons may work as well. 32mm OD, same as the oem tokico's. And they are drilled and nitrided. I have not removed the oem pistons to measure length though. Any idea? But at $94 each, person would prolly get the full nissin kit for that.
