I'm in the process of rebuilding my '06 ZX6R, and I'd like to have a brake rebuild kit on hand. I used an alcohol based cleaner, and kerosene to clean the gunk, and I was told that the alcohol eats the seals. Are the Tokico brakes all the same, or do I need a specific kit?

I'm getting ready to rebuild my calipers as well. How did yours go? Anything you learned?

I believe the rebuild kits are pricey.

Do yourself a favor and buy a set of 07-12 Nissin calipers off eBay. They generally sell pretty cheap and are superior to the Tokico ones you have now. Not to mention, its a direct swap!
"Pricey"? :eh:
Runs about $50 all in (For MC rebuild)......not sure where you get a 07-12 swop for cheaper? :O

In MY opinion/experience the following is enough...
1) Flush your brake fluid
2) Take apart your calipers to clean them
3) Rebuild MC ($50)
4) New brake fluid

Lever should be tight....

I assumed he was refering to a caliper rebuild, not an MC rebuild.

But even with the MC, $55 for the rebuild kit or around $80 for an 07+ unit. Thats $30 more well spent if you ask me :O
