Yup, searching will provide the answers you need. It's a popular mod and there's plenty of info for you on this. It's well worth the effort to do the swap.

A how-to to unbolt the calipers and bolt on the new ones? Well there ya go, that's pretty much the how-to.

You don't really need ss lines... The standard lines are sufficient.

Thoughts... Have a good look at the crush washers between the bolts and banjo fittings. Some people re-use them, but they are cheap at Kawi...

I've had the 14 calipers on my 06 and Blade calipers on my 07. Both with standard lines... No issues.

No, the ZX-14/ZX-6/Concours Nissans use different pads than the ZX-10. And if you're swapping calipers, of course you'll have to rebleed the system cause you have to disconnect the lines.
