ZX-14 Calipers

After a lot of internet (and soul) searching, I finally broke down and bought a set of ZX-14 calipers from ebay ($300). Should arrive next week. One good aspect (of the many) about Hawaii, riding season is year round and I can try them as soon as I install it. One bad thing (of the few), you have to order almost everything you want for the motorcycle, especially Kawasaki, and it takes about a week. Suzuki owns the market here.

sounds great

would love the same setup at the front but in Cyprus its very hard to get your hands on such parts. you have to order from abroad and it just costs too much.

let us know how it feels after installation

I'll post how the new calipers feel once I get them. The system will be here on Friday. I guess I have some work for next weekend. My wife can't complaint, I've been a babysiter for the last three weekends, no riding time.

Congrats on the buy, it makes a very noticable difference in everyway on the bike...even more noticable than stainless brakelines.
