Hello, what do folks recommend for a bolt-on full front brake system replacement for a 2007 zx10r (including model/year for the parts)? (better braking and low maintenance + bolt on)


Reason: my 2007 zx10r front brake system recently started to get extremely soft when bike sits for a few days and it's time to treat myself to a new system after 12 years instead of debugging the old crufty one.

(I do not see any evidence of leaks and think this might as well be a good time to upgrade from stock calipers and master and just redo the entire system now that the bike is holy cow 12 years old! :) )

For street and slow-moderate track, there is absolutely nothing wrong with the stock setup mc and calipers if it`s working as it should. Get a rebuild kit instead of bying something else that may need service. Throw in a pair of braided lines and new good pads. All you need. My opinion anyway.

Lots of threads on this, but.....

Here's my set up on my gen 2. I think it's about
everything I can do before upping the budget.

With the following mods I can now get through
a 20 minute track session with no fade.

later model rotors 300mm -> 310mm
converted them to full floating
Nissin Calipers with 5mm spacers
Vesrah pads
braided lines
Motul fluid
Stock Nissin MC

Stock master....or 05 up R1 master, braided lines, 12 cbr 1000r monobloc calipers, pads of your choice. Night and day difference bro. I run the R1 master. The 10r master is good with a clean, rebuild, and Teflon tape on the nipple. Just make sure that you bleed the crap out of it. Don't know why, but the stock mc traps a lot of air.

What year is your R1 master off of?
