I have just fitted ZX12R ('06) calipers to my ZRX ('01).

The adapter came from Taiwan.

How do they perform in comparison?

I have a set of 12R calipers and master if anyone wants them.

Good work mate. I love the Nissin radials with the stock master cylinder. One finger braking any time you want.

Where I looked initially:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/ZRX1200-ZRX-Rad ... 53&vxp=mtr

Looks like he's sold out. Perhaps he'll do some more.

I bought them about 6 months ago, and only just got around to fitting them after my top-end rebuild.

I may need to bleed the brakes again before I can comment on how good they are.
I took them off my (previous) ZX12R. I put Nissin GTR1400 calipers on that one - one finger braking for sure with those.

After a bit more bleeding and bedding in, they perform very well - I think better than OEM.

However, there is a set of Nissin calipers (ex ZX6R) on the way, 'cause they're the ant's pants.

My best set of brakes however, are R1 blue-spot calipers, coupled with an FJR1300 master cylinder, on my FJ1200. Definitely 1 finger braking.

You just need a matching Master cylinder now for the ZRX ;)

Tokicos off the ZX12R were good.

Nissins (ex ZX6R) are on now. Much newer technology, and definitely one finger braking, instant stopping.
