More caliper info YO

I wasn't gonna let the "cat" outta the bag, but someone else will figure it out eventually (prolly aslready has and hasn't posted it).

I just bolted up, bled and tested 07 ZX6R calipers to my 07 ZX10R... YES THEY FIT. AS well, the obvious ZX14R and the Concours use the same caliper. Thanks me later foos. Same result as the other great members here. THE LEVER IS SOLID! Finally, after 4 friggin ZX10's and a 636 with SHIT ASS BREAKS, I have a real set of breaks!!!

PS. You have to use the ZX6R pads... I am assuming the pads are the same for the 14, but cannot guarantee it. All I can tell you is, the Tokico pads don't fit the Nissin calipers (until I cut the extra material outta the way anyway) You'll see what I'm talkin bout willis...

Better get on ebay before the last set I saw for $175 is gone... LOL

Because wheelie!!!

Well duh, I though this was obvious to everyone. I will not let the cat out of the bag on my other caliper secret then, anyways these Nissins are gold and would match the 04-05 nicely.

Is there something wrong with the 06-07 10R calipers I missed?

I haven't had any issues on my 06. And I have even had mine out on the track.

The fading problem is still there, just not as bad with the 06. Also the toxicos have a weird lever feel to them, they make for a real soft lever with a little more travel than some pepole like. Seems that swtching to the zx-14 calipers gives you a very firm lever, no fade and super strong brakes.

My lever on my 07 will go all the way to the grip. That's how soft it is and they have been bled. When riding hard and getting on the brakes from130-150 for a 40mph corner, the brake fluid boils up and the lever pushes way out away from the bar. I have been looking for 14 calipers but they are always so expensive.

Hmph... I never tried the stock system on the track as I replaced with a 19x18 Brembo and Stainless lines and haven't had a problem except with a slight bit of fade at the end of the day where the average temp was 99 F. I was going to try and get new pads before I do anything else.

I have stainless lines and galfer green pads and when I go to the track I have issues w/ them getting spongy. I am going to look into the ZX-14 caliper fix

We're all getting older but not growing up.....
