i got ss lines first for my 05 zx10, used them with stock shitty calipers, brakes were still horrible. Then I replaced calipers with 1000rr ones. Same lines worked just fine. So, I'd say get the lines for zx10. And don't forget to bleed master by loosening and tightening the bolt. That fixed the brakes for good.

No problem. You got the 5mm spacers to mount calipers, right? Good luck on a swap. Big difference in braking!

naw im going to take a trip to lowes and make something work
Your talking about your BRAKES ! JUst buy the correct spacers, I hate it when I see bikes with ace hardware crap on them, I tell my customers when they are looking at a bike to check out the hardware on the bike, if it has bolts on it from ace hardware, chances are the guy was to cheap to properly maintain the bike also and to run away, look for another bike. My 2 cents.
