just thought i would put this thread up
here are some pics of a couple of rebuilt nissin calipers from a 1200 bandit
they are a great upgrade to the zx6r J series tokico calipers
and bolt straight onto the j forks without any mods

think of it like high heels

the same amount of pressure is being applied, but just in a smaller more concentrated location.

1996-2000
the calipers are 90mm from centre to centre of the fixing bolt holes
think about it guys .....less pressure on the lever more pressure on the brakes

use to have some on a 7r a few years ago and was far better for track abuse

That sounds pretty good to me. I need to find some for a good deal.

right took some pics today of before with the old tokico calipers


and now with the nissin upgrade ....2 less pistons but they are bigger


as you can see the calipers are a direct fit
the only thing you will need to change is the banjo fitment
reason why......... the thread is different
now dont panic as calipers only use 2 threads .....metric course and fine
the tokicos use a course thread as you can see in my hand .....all you need to do is get a fine thread fitment ....which everyone stocks and are cheap
