Before you change pads...if I could, I recommend you read this thread.

http://www.zx-10r.net/forum/showthre...t=brakes+fixed

The stock Gen II brakes suck and they can be easily fixed for about $100-$130. I swapped mine for 2006 Honda CBR1000RR calipers with SS lines from eBay delivered for around $100. You just need 4 5MM spacers to make them fit. There are other options discussed in the thread I posted, but I can tell you the changes I made FIXED it all.

I've been using them my track bike and have had no issues. If you decide to change yours, let me know and I can send pics. It is night and day difference.

Good luck.

well theres definately plenty to read with all 150 pages lol, but after reading the first 15+ or so, it looks like i may go ahead and order me some calibers too while im at it.

are the ss lines required? where can i find some? and which brakes did you go with after you installed these?

Oh and thanks for the link, theres ton of useful information on there

Dude ss lines will make a big difference.
I put a brembo master Cylinder on mine. That should be plenty.
I have no problem stopping mine. Just my .02.

I did the same thing. SS lines and zx14 calipers slapped on my track bike. Tojo can vouch for all the outbreaking that I pull on him at the track

Yep, lots of solutions...

http://www.ebay.com/itm/HONDA-CBR100...890e6d&vxp=mtr

It says OEM lines, but they look like SS lines. If not, grab SS lines from just about anywhere. The stainless lines reduce (or eliminate) any flexing. Use some good brake fluid as well.

I am using Vesrah pads I got from P1. You can get them from many MH vendors.

Bryan...noted. See you next year out there.

And...I wasn't trying, were you?

Yes, that will help, but the overall consensus is that the real issue is the caliper design on the Gen II's.

I'm using the HH pads, very controlled braking, but I think it's all the parts together

You have a Gen I, correct?

if you're manually bleeding the brake lines, have alot of patience. sometimes it doesn't feel like it's bleeding but keep at it. getting a syringe bleeder or air bleeder will make it alot quicker. just make sure you get all the air out of the lines.
