Talking Got my nissin calipers on.

These things a fukin great. I put on today my calipers, Galfer HH pads and front lines. Stops way better than before. Will post pics of the new look cause I changed some things and added new stuff. Waiting on my rear line to do that mod to then I'm done for awhile. If you want to upgrade to better braking these are a must. When the snow gets off the ground I'm riding.

That seems to be the general consensus from people making the swap. Glad to hear it worked out for you as well.

Super cool bro.
I got mine just on too.
Painted the NISSAN logo green too for a little detail.

Stock pad here. Waiting for the Vesra pads.
Still have lines s/s lines on the bench and some new DOT 4 Motul

So with stock lines and stock pads. Changed the M/C too. Problem feels fixed. Not a Brembo. But I like my fix. M/C is same if not mistaken. Using '07 ZX6 calipers. Much better now, but I paid to have them now.

I love my setup as well. I have Nissin caliper, Brembo 19x18 and Galfer ss lines. I only have to move the lever about half an inch and brakes are fully locked up!

Man I'm jealous of you guys, I haven't even gotten to try my out yet. I did my swap towards the end of '07 and I took my time with repainting them and polishing the Nissin emblem I did't even get a chance to try them cause the weather changed to super cold!

I changed mine and rode around the neighborhood before the snow cam in. As soon as it clears up I'll be riding again. You will enjoy it I promise.

I just installed ZX-14 front calipers on my 2006 ZX-10R.

HUGE difference in brake feel and initial bite. I'm really happy with the change; the stock calipers felt like they were pushing wooden blocks against the brake rotors.

All for $167 for some used calipers on eBay. Worth it! Thanks ZX10R.net for the great advice!

NICE!!!

Don't hurt yourself with those! I'm afraid to upgrade my brakes for the plain fact that I just got used to riding my 05 with zero (aka FACTORY) brakes.

I'm afraid that turn 1 at Miller Motorsports Park would have a whole new meaning....

Honestly, I'm doing basically the same upgrades. Brembo, braided lines, except I'm keeping the calipers and switching out the rotors. I thought it was interesting that Kawasaki mentions that rotors have been upgraded to dissipate heat and prevent Brake Fluid boil off.

Anyway, hope this works our for you.

Good Luck!
