Brake Upgrade :)

Took the day off and spent time putting the new brakes added GSXR1000 brakes. They definitely make the fat couch stop a whole lot better. I also stopped by Motorcycles Unlimited and picked up some EBC HH pads to go with them.

Id also recommend running some brillo/scotch brite pads on the rotors since you possibly got some fingerprints and what not on em. cleaning them up helps up especially since youre putting on those new pads

this.

It doesn't look like you used a caliper adapter bracket. The bolt spacing doesn't match up... did you drill out and tap the caliper?

Stock calipers with Vesrah JL pads would have stopped your bike faster than the other calipers with HH pads.

+1 the vesrah do have a nice strong bite with awesome stopping power and are the best brakes ive tried so far.

mx6er - Bolts lined up just fine, 62mm spacing, no need for a bracket. Just adapter sleeves.

Maybe I will try the other pads after a while. But I am loving the better brakes either way now. And should hopefully have the SS lines soon..

All total with the adapter sleeves, brakes and calipers It was a sub $200 upgrade.

The 6 pot calipers are a good upgrade for the ZX11 and bolt right up with just some spacers. Definitely an improvement over the old 4 pot Tokico stock calipers.
The lines will definitely help lever feel. Looking good!
