Hello zxr fans . Well there was me thinking I could just buy some 2008 zx6 forks and they will pop into my 1998 zx6 clamps lol. Spent some time reading and learning a lot from this forum and have put the forks on ebay. The plan now is to have my 1998 forks fixed and then the brakes . Them brakes need bleeding all the fucking time . 6 pots . Any way seen some Suzuki rf 900 nisin brakes and was thinking they look a lot like the bandit nisins. Witch fit my bike . So basically I need some of you lovely lot to let me know what brakes you have fitted to your g1 zx6r . :roll:

Ellie....did you try taking apart the calipers and cleaning/rebuilding them? or you just bled the brakes?

Also with your bleeding what was your method?
1) Start at the MC
2) Bleed right caliper
3) Bleed left caliper
4) Repeat...

I find manual bleeding works best, pump..pump..pump...build pressure and hold your lever pulled in, open your bleeder valve (Still hold pressure on the brake lever), when the lever squeezes to the point it reaches your handle bar (Fully compressed) close your bleeder valve (So no air bubbles get in) then release your lever. Just repeat all around steps 1-4

Sorry if this was not your issue...tryyina help :O

Thank u all I knew you were all out there working or riding . I fitted my forks today and so far so good no leeks. Plus my little test ride in a hoody and track suit bottoms turns into me trying to get my keen down (twat) . Safe to say the front end feels lush now Iv much more confidence in the bends. Funny how a test ride round the block turns into me getting all over excited and ridding 30 mile silly . Thanks zx6err for the advice . I didn't split the calipers but gave up and let a garage have a go . £40 lighter the brakes felt fine for 50 60 miles then the leaver is back to the bar . Fuck um Iv just ordered some nisins calipers so with a bit more bleeding I should have a bike to ride soon.
