I have seen old timers posts referring to selling the adapter bolt "kits" to match them up. Forks and calipers are on my list of things I am search for a deal....
Shit! You are damn right; I had a brain fart... It's been so long ago...

ZZ-R1200 calipers and ZX-11D calipers both have 62 mm spacing between both mounting bolts (same for 2001-2002 GSX-R1000 6 pots).
So, they were a "bolt-on" on my ZX11D but only after I drilled and tapped the holes (on ZZ-R1200 calipers) to M10 x 1.25 threads as ZX-11's OEM and I used ZX-11D bolts.

Again, sorry for my mistake.

great info, now the question is can one find a used quality set of 6 pot gsxr 1000 brakes that dont require a full overhaul, or are the double pot ZZR1200 calipers any better ? i figure ss lines, new pads and fluid may be enough for me but if i find cheap enough perhaps...
