Yup, searching will provide the answers you need. It's a popular mod and there's plenty of info for you on this. It's well worth the effort to do the swap.

You don't really need ss lines... The standard lines are sufficient.

Thoughts... Have a good look at the crush washers between the bolts and banjo fittings. Some people re-use them, but they are cheap at Kawi...

I've had the 14 calipers on my 06 and Blade calipers on my 07. Both with standard lines... No issues.

No, the ZX-14/ZX-6/Concours Nissans use different pads than the ZX-10. And if you're swapping calipers, of course you'll have to rebleed the system cause you have to disconnect the lines.

I was tempted to try monoblock calipers from R1, but I already have Nissins from ZX-14, and I didn't want to mess with it again (or spend money). However, if anyone is willing to give them a shot, I'd like to see a review. :smile:

Pretty sure that's been done, but far too long ago for me to remember who. I wanna say the person who did it had a green gen 1 but yeah...that memory thing.
