I agree, with correct pads the 4 pots brake as good as the 6 pots. Even the Tokico 4 pots. 6 pots are heavier though.

Bunny, most s/h will be shite/seized. Take the time to strip your originals, send the bodies to Flying Tiger o be ceramically coated, then rebuild with new seals.

If you do buy s/h, calipers from Suzuki's have anodised aluminium pistons, where as Kawasaki have chrome plated steel, which doesn't stand up to corrosion as well as the aluminium.

Those calipers look gorgeous. How much for the Flying Tiger treatment?

I really can't remember, although I don't recall being shocked. Quick turnaround too in that department.
Had all pins and fasteners polished and black zinced by Mikey. :D
