I upgraded to ZX-14 Nissin calipers and radial m/c with Galfer SS line on my 04 - took it for a ride a couple days ago - very impressed with the new braking power.

For those haven't upgraded to nissin yet, looks like the 08's are lighter caliper than previous gen. It will be a good info to know :nana: .
obviously thats the reason but with only 3-4 owners of 08's here so far those people would have to be owners of previous 04,06 bikes in order to make the comparo for fitment purposes and thats quite rare. So in summation its waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too early.

well the Nissins 07 zx6r/zx14 calipers are a huge step up from the Tockico's on the 04-07 bikes for sure especially with stainless lines and a radial master.

will be trying out a 19x18 brembo with the set-up next (same as my zx6r) and if i get my orders for europe Brembo HP's or monoblocks will go on before i head out.

They are a straight fit, but only if you keep the ZX10R rotors, the 14 has 10mm larger diameter rotors so you'd need a spacer to bring the caliper further out, similar to a 2006 Fireblade.
