I have a conclusion... The Kawi has ASV shorty Levers, so im losing leverage when pressing the front brakes. I somewhat do not like them. I am going to get regular levers and retry from there. I will address the rears afterwards!

A quick one

rear brakes on sportbikes are a bit of a different animal. they don't really stop the bike they just assist slowing/aligning the bike while stopping with the front. As for the front, i have a zuk and it has always stopped pretty well. If i were having problems i would probably change the fluid and pads as a first plan of action because its cheap and makes a pretty big differnce.

They're not *completely* useless. I tap and sometimes use them while engine braking just for the brake light. Sucks to have a cager slam into your cause he "didn't know you were slowing down".

Sorry, back on topic.

We as riders know the risks we take everytime we put that kickstand up and twist the throttle.

I had an '04 ZX10......SS lines, new pads, levers......nothing helped. Gave up and sold it. Worst brakes I've EVER had on a Busa and my RC51 BOTH stopped better and with all stock stuff. FWIW

I have an 07 zx10r se and I had this same issue. I did some reading up on it on I believe and I ended up finding out it has something to due with our calipers. I indeed up replacing my calipers with cbr1000 calipers doing fentibo ss lines and getting a brembo 19rcs master setup and now my brakes are amazing. Yes I realize this is an old thread, hope this helps.

The zx10's are notorious for poor master cylinders. I've seen people either upgrade the master or convert to zx14 setup.

Watch this spot...

I have a second gen ZX10R (06-07). The front brakes are the worst I have ever used. Searching on the ZX10R forum, there is a HUGE thread about them.

With my bike, I bought a set of CBR1000RR calipers with SS lines off of eBay for about $100. I had to use spacers when mounting the calipers (I think it was 5mm spacers) to mount properly. Same front MC. I have ZERO issues with braking now and trust them completely. This includes many trach days.

I do not know what calipers cross reference, but they may be the same on your model ZX6R?

I know it's an older thread, but any updates from your issues?
