SV1000 Brakes

Post by Solis560 » Tue Jul 11, 2017 9:37 pm

Hey everyone,

I've been reading up on some calipers that might fit the ZXR, and I believe to have found that the SV1000 has 62mm mounting holes and thus should fit the ZXR.
Has anyone here have experience with SV1000 calipers on his/her ZXR and what I need to place them, like spacers?

Thanks!

Big update

We went ahead and bought 2005 model SV1000 front calipers and this spacer thing (ZXR750 ZXR KR1S CALIPER SPACERS TO RUN GSXR1000 CALIPERS on eBay), which allows you to use the M8 mounting bolt of the SV instead of the ZXR's M10 one.
Fitted the brakes today and they went on really easy, the spacer was just a bit too long so we had grind a tiny bit off, no big deal.
Tried to bleed the brakes today as well but turns out the kit we have didn't fit over the SV's bleed nipple, so no testing today unfortunately. Ordered a new hose though that should arrive here on Tuesday. I'll keep you posted.

The SV1000 calipers are really really clean, no rot nothing. No more caliper rot finally! :excited
