  1. Air in brakes

    The ZX-10R
    I guess I messed up. Went to bleed front brakes on my gen 5 ABS and accidentally pumped too much, got air past the master cylinder. Normally no problem, just fill it back up and pump some more. No dice. No matter what I do can’t get more than a tiny bit of pressure in the lever. I tried bleeding...

  5. Recommended Front Disc/Pad Brake Combo

    The ZX-10R
    Hi guys, Can anyone recommend a good aftermarket 'racey' road combo of discs and pads? I currently have an '04 with braided hose and a Brembo MC. I don't want to spend TOO much, but would like a nice upgrade from standard and ideally in 'Wavy' form, to match the stock look... Thanks in...

  7. Aftermarket Rotors??

    The ZX-10R
    Had 320mm galfers on my 04. Thought about swapping them to the new bike but was going to leave the braking system alone after I changed the pads. Fast forward to now and I swapped in a pair of 320mm braking SK rotors. Took the bike out to get the pads/rotors bedded in yesterday and went on a...

    The ZX-10R

  10. 08 rear brakes

    The ZX-10R
    I just bought a 08' with 5k miles, and the rear brakes are real catchy. They shake when i get on them a little hard and will lock up here and there. The pads look pretty new and the rotor does not have any rust on it. Im not sure why this is happening, any ideas? thanks
