I got a set of 2006-2007 CBR1000RR brake calipers that I got powder coated gold. I spent total including the calipers $120. and I'll sell it for that. I got reciepts from ebay and the powder coating place.

I did the ZX-14's.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

6R or 14R calipers, they are a direct fit and do not require spacers.

Yeah the CBR1000RR requires you to buy four 5 or 10 mm washers.

Nissin calipers, absolutely love them.

No offense to anyone, but the last thing I'd want to do is to take something off of a Honda, and put on my bike. Just because they lose parts when we blow by them doesn't mean we should be bolting them onto ours.

At its core, the Ninja ZX-10R is a motorcycle built for the accomplished rider who can fully appreciate its capabilities--whether put to the test at a racetrack, or merely the focus of bench-racing conversation. It is, by all standards, the embodiment of the ultimate superbike.

When I did the conversion I also used a 14 radial m/c and Galfer stainless lines - night and day difference compared to the stock set up.
