Hah, bollocks :cry:

They are 83mm spacing, no good for me at all, why did i not know that sooner.

I bet some folks on here knew that in the dim and distant past and i've not done enough research :lol:

Do later Triumph calipers fit 'cos these are T595?

Shame, lovely calipers, British made too by all i've heard (Alcan).

A used pair it will be E1 :)

Sorry Steve, no more, and i'd best let him have these back.

My Versys has got Tok 2-pot sliders and they do a brilliant job :? :?

Ah nuts! Yeah, 90 mm bolt spacing ones.

Saw a set for a 2003 Triumph RS for 35 GBP. They're on ebay with a bunch of other Triumph branded Nissins that also come with SS lines for a little more.

But now too late for your trip. You won't be coming home doubly happy, about the trip and the new bike you're riding.

Cheers for the pointers E1, miraculously having serviced and fitted the original calipers off this E2 they are so far proving (today, 20 miles :roll: ) to be
hard-braking, free-rolling delights.

Let us pray for Alpine happiness :)

Amazingly the bike is ready and i'm half packed a day-and-a-bit early, something MUST go wrong.

Having said that i've not had the days off confirmed yet by the manager, he told me two week since he'd sort out a definite answer as to leaving one bloke on his own for two days ](*,)

Forgot, yesterday afternoon ran true to form.

Bike ready, rolled it out for test-run, battery utterly deaded, thought i'd never get the alarm to stop bleeping.

Luckily Halfords had a Yuasa in stock this morn, huzzaahh :D

This happens to you too? I thought it was just me. I'll remember the tickets for the romantic vacation, but then forget my camera. Or I'll remember the camera but forget to recharge the batteries. Or I'll have the tickets for the races, camera and batteries recharged, but forgot to get new rubber for the bike. It never fails!

I too have had the Toks hook up nicely. Finally, you think! But it's a mirage. One that I give 1,000 miles before they begin to feel slightly woody, then more woody, and by 4K down the road, you're pissed at the damn things again. After my fair share of braking situations where the Toks just weren't doing the job reliably, I finally took the Nissin plunge.

Case in point, yesterday. Coming out of the mountains in the lead of our pack, I came up upon a pack of three rice burner rat cars, a Subaru WRX leading a BMW and a H###A Civic, all ripping up the twisties too. They were tightly packed and making a move around them all would take a decently long section of clear roadway. Wasn't able to pass in the short chute sections even to get one car out of the way, but had a nice open elbow coming up where I could take two of the three on the inside, carry my momentum out of the corner and slingshot the Subaru before braking into a downhill blind right-hander. It's situations like this where the Toks would have possibly been okay too, but a lot less sure, with some nervousness sprinkled in due to their limited wheel locking power. With the Nissins, you just grow to depend on them to perform well every time with better power and less input.

FD - read Yorkie's post about the E's where he lists the caliper options ... you can also find GSXR600 & 750 caliper from certain years which fit. When I was looking, once I knew all the years & options for donor bikes, I found quite a few on EBay at any one time.

Please will forum members put their bike model letter, & 1 or 2 after their Profile Location. eg: Your Town & B1,2,3,4 C1,2 E1,2 F1,2
As all zx9's are all slightly different, and I get fed up having to ask which model & number, as year may not be accurate.

Yorkie - correct as usual ... twas Steve .. from his post;

Nissin four pots Caliper Replacement

Front CAlipers off a bandit 1200's , rf 900 , early 90's gsxr750 /400 , some Triumph's , sprint , Trophy, carburettor Daytona/Speed Triple, all 900 Sprint, 955 Sprint ST/RS and many more,

Please note: Not T595/955 Daytona and 955/1050 Speed Triple which have 84mm centre [these have Triumph badges on but are Niissin] {make sure you ask the seller if there 90mm spacing as the triumphs spacing differs from year to year]

rare but the MZ1000 also uses the Nissins

Tokico 4 pot caliper replacement

Tokico's off SRAD GSXR 600's or 750's four pot callipers

Suzi TL 1000 also [not tl1000R unless you want 6 pots like you already have] ]

my mate said he hated the 6 pots but ive had them for 10 yrs on my zx6r and I love them

until the brake lever starts hitting the throttle!!! then its time to clean the crud out from under the seals or change them
done it twice now in 20k miles

i hear what everyone is saying but i find it crazy how i get on fine with them
