Been a coupla* months collecting parts. Ti caliper bolts of the right length, pitch and head design were 2 motherpuffers to find. Really. Had to get 10mm spacers for the calipers since the new front waves took me from 300mm to 320mm. Hence the need for new, longer than stock caliper bolts. Rear wave remains stock diamiter. Ti rotor bolts weren't AS hard to find, but took a bit to get them. Added EBC HH pads front and rear. Didn't wanna run OE pads with 6500 miles on them on the new rotors. Old pads looked great and prolly woulda werked fine, BUT......

Installed MUCH NEEDED new hoops as well. Jorge hooked me up proper with yet another set of Pilot Powers. Stayed with the 180/55 out back. Took the chain to the cleaners as well. Soaked it in kerosene for a minute this morning, then got jiggy with the grunge brush and rags.

All told, I put a few hours or so into it. So far I think it looks good. When the streets dry up, Ima go give it the important road test. Breaking everything in sloooow and proper.

Pics in the next post.

For those that were with us in Utah last weekend, you'll appreciate this.....

I look at that pic of the rear PP, and see just how deep in the wear bars actually are at new, and I cringe to think I took the bike to Utah thinking that "this tire will be ok for the weekend".*

Never again. Worse yet, after as many years and miles as I've ridden, I shoulda known to never leave the garage with it. I shoulda just took the FJR.*

Shits sweet now tho'. Ride report forthcoming after the brake break-in.*

Likewise. A Brembo radial pump is in my future. That's all that's left on the brake system. A clear case of "not so sure I need it", but, why not.

Yup the ZX1-r has loose tolerances and cause brake fade under hard braking. My lever would touch the throutle by the end of a days ride until i put steel braided lines on. Also how many miles can you get out of the stock brake pads? I got over ten thousand miles now half or tristies and track miles.

+1 I kept OEM pads in the back for that exact reason. But the Gixxer is lookin' awful good with those wavies.
