ZX14 calipers are defintly worth the upgrade they rock, we have installed them on a 06 with lines and stock master and it will lift the rear tire of the ground with no effort.

As much as I know the GSXR1000 K5/6 use the same calipers as the ZX10R and have the same problems so that probably wont be worth the hassle. Changing the pistons in the calipers seems to be an option and has shown very good results.

Only green is really mean! 1984 GPZ 900R & 2004 ZX10R => 20 years of NINJA power

Yeah Right all tockico is junk. You would be better off finding a set of Nissin from a ZX-14 or a 07 ZX-6R.

zx14 straight up bolt on and hit the track. i'm surprised with the Brembo MC and all it still has lever travel issues as thats a deffnate first even for those racing the 10 that are on this site.

here's another option that had positive results.
