Hey guys, I have 07 zx6r nissin calipers for my 07 zx10r, I got new ebc pads because the 6 and the 10 pads are not interchangeable. My question is if im using the 10 master cyl do i use the 10 brake lines? I noticed the lines are about a inch longer n the banjo bolt location is a bit different. Anyone run this setup?

Finally got my bike all back together and this was one of the mods I did. I can't even rave enough about how much of a difference it made. I added the Galfer Superbike lines too and the stopping power is finally what it should be. If you have not done this or a similar mod yet, DO IT!!!

SS lines, the 07 6r Nissans with your pads of choice are a proven hit and there are numerous threads pertaining to other calipers in the forum as well. Happy reading

I was in that bidding war! But I pulled out after $101 because I was also watching a set of ZX-14 calipers that were $49 each. Got them both for $113shipped :thumbsup:

Yea, they had them listed in seperate auctions. I figured if the bid on the ZX-6 calipers went above $101, I would just go grab the buy it now ZX-14 calipers! Luckily they were still there! They have a couple of scrapes on them, but nothing I can't deal with!

I missed a lot too! If the zx-14 calipers would have fallen through, I was set to pick up some CBR 1000rr calipers local for $100! I prefer the nissin's though. Now I just need to get some braided lines and new banjo bolts!

You'll barely be squeezing with only one finger to stop as well, man you can shed so much speed. My bike brand new out of the crate never matched the braking performance in any aspect. Way too much initial lever travel before they really grabbed, and from triple digit speeds there was just too much travel. With the Nissins and aftermarket lines just a light squeeze can send you over the bars or into the ditch.:badteeth:

flthy1, not only the brakes but that front tire was HORRIBLE! Rear shock is pretty shitty too IMO...

Well damn...with all this talk of calipers. I have a set of 07 zx6r calipers sitting in my closet that I bought for my 2nd gen 10. Well now I have a third gen...so its time to sell them. Ill make a thread for them, but just thought I would mention them in here.

When I took off the stock Tokico's, my right side caliper had a decent amount of BLACK fluid, I'd say 15-20cc's sitting right in the bottom, after that the fluid was clear. I blame that primarily on the routing of the factory lines, but still thought that was just a little odd, and upsetting. I never had to squeeze the lever to the throttle like some people state, but that's just because I never had a consistent amount of high heat in the calipers probably.

The worst it ever got was my lever did hit my ring finger a few times braking hard, now if my lever were to be that far back it would either be broken, or my face would be about 4 feet from eating pavement.

Some guys dont' think they're that great but for me it was a major improvement, now if I could only get the lever feel that my buddies 08 6R has, even less initial travel!
