Question 06 XXL brake compatibility??

Hey Guys, so first post on the forum so far... I apologize if this can be found on other threads but I just need information quick.

Needed to know what other brake calipers are compatible with my 06 636 because my front brakes seem to be bad (spongy) and looking to replace and upgrade calipers to get good braking power.

Specifically if brakes from a 2010 zx14r would be a direct bolt on replacement for my bike? Also would the master cylinder from the zx14r work as well?

Thanks in advance guys

Master and brake calipers have no relation to each other.

Now the brake lever and the master very much need to be matched or you might have locked brakes since the lever might not have the right size, pushing on the master even at rest.


You can bolt up any caliper directly, that comes from a bike the the same brake rotor diameter.
Just because it's the biggest bike, doesn't mean it got the best calipers.

When buying used calipers, just go for the newest model year you can find that matches your rotors.

The 05/06 has 300mm diameter, so does any zx6r from 07-2012. Whenever I get to spend some money on changing my calipers, I will go for the 09-12, preferably 2012 depending on the price difference between the years.

Right now I'm using a 2013 zx10 brake master with stock lever.

DannyLab, et al: pay special attention to the spacers bod has on the caliper bolts. I have Brake Tech Axis 320mm rotors (up 10mm from my OEM 310mm). With this setup I use Kyle Racing spacers, you'll be in a would of hurt if you go up a size if using w/bigger calipers.

And the other obvious note is to use braided lines and have the whole system purged of air.

Are the levers stock for the 2013 zx10 or your bike? Also, are the 2013 a direct fit for a 2005 636?
