Hello everyone,

I recently found some GSXR 600 k1 spare parts (for a very goood price), and I am really tempted to buy a few things for my ZX11.
No 1 on my list are the front brakes ,but I am afraid that these brakes do not have the power to stop my big Beast, since it is almost 2 timmes heavier then the GSXR 600.

What do you think guys are these brakes up to the job?

Thanks in advance.
Simon

DonSimon, Kawasaki put the shame shit brakes on the ZZR 600's and 1100's. I'm sure GSXR600 brakes would stop you.


Personally, I'd sooner have blade brakes than the GSXR 6-pots. The 6-pots cost more and are harder on your rotors

And prone to brake fade after hard use (even with braided hoses) they really do build up a heat

GSXR probably has bigger rotors to dissipate heat better
