There's a rear brake on these bikes??? :badteeth:

Don't know if it will fit, but most people don't worry about it because it won't make that much difference. If you're hard on the fronts, then the back tire will be very light or off the ground slightly making the rear brake useless. My recommendation is to not worry about swapping the rear caliper.

I would be curious about the same question for 3rd gen... I want more rear brake for poppin wheelies haha. Other than that I don't really use much rear either.

The ZX-14 also uses an underslung caliper from what I remember.
That would be cool if it fit!

I can't remember the last time i used my rear brake other than to settle the chassis while braking hard for corner or an interstate off ramp . Mine is set up as a trail brake only so there's no point in having a rear brake that would stop a train because i don't use that much rear brake.

i think the 14 runs a larger rear disc too so you'd need the whole setup to swap...

providing the spindle sizes match, offset of the disc and the thickness of the caliper carrier itself and how it locates in the swingarm (anti-rotation/locating lug)

but saying that anything is possible with some engineering.

i'm currently working on my own quick-release style setup with underslung carrier and off set disc and captive spacers for stock spec wheels... watch this space :)

Garth is doing a 14 style swap right now. I don't think he's using the oem caliper but doing the underslung bracket I believe. Maybe try pming him.

no it doesn't fit, the axle is bigger on the 14 and so is the disc, and the bracket is wider at the axle. Would take a lot to get it converted for the 10.

Dont think they do fit unless you can custom make a bracket to mount it :dontknow:

I use an 08 zx6r rear caliper on my bike to match the front nissins

plus i have a spare 08 zx6r caliper sitting in the shed seems i brought another for the black rear master cylinder :lol:
