Ive been away from here for a long time after selling my ZZR1100 and getting a ZZR1400 i then sold that and was ZZR less for about a year. Ive recently bought a bargain (or so i thought) ZZR1200 for £1300 so ill b on here a bit more.

I was trying to strip the rear caliper to put seals in it but the bolts were seized to cuta long story short the caliper is now scrap due to a mounting lug getting broken off :roll:

can anyone tell me what other caliper fit the rear of these without too much modification as 1200 ones are in short supply on ebay.

I'm guessing tons of the Kawis fit it. But check the zzr600 compatibility posting. Yes, the 600 forum. It lists lots of cross application Kawasaki Tokico rear calipers.
For example ZX10R rear calipers was a exact bolt in swap on my ZZR600

Well it looks like the 1200s are a bit different due to the lack of a rear brake torsion bar. Ive ordered one from eBay US. Could kick myself for being so heavy handed especially as i managed to get the pistons out without splitting it anyway!
Thanks for the input though.
