I hope the turbo one is mildly boosted for street use. Ever see one blow up on the Dyno? There's a video on YouTube of the very thing.

Nice collection! :) (y)

Amazing!! Welcome to the zx 11 board! Both beautiful bikes!! If you don't want that tank bra on the 91 I'll take it. They both look like show winners. I'd love a stock 11, the previous owner did some disgusting alterations, I have to bring a bear it. Bring them to N.Y. And we'll drink beer and look at them!!

Nice Rides.
I had 1 new D and 1 used, Great Bikes.
I'd be uprating the Stoppers on that Turbo'd one...馃挴
From what I read the 2000-2001 GSXR1000 6 pot calipers are a bolt-on, the only mod is drilling and tapping the caliper mount bosses for larger bolts. Don't take my word for it, never done it.

Always wanted a ZX11 back in the day, now I'm the proud owner of two in two months, lol.

The first is a near mint one owner 1991 with 21k on the odometer:

Then today I decided to step it up and picked up this one:

Gonna need to pick someone's brain on the mr turbo system.
Since the turbo bike's air inlets are now non-functional I would put some good driving lights in there. Not bling junk but quality lights for dark roads.

Easy swap but mixed reviews. Some say they have issues with the 6 pots sticking.

The front brakes on this one are actually pretty good.

4 pots actually do the job just fine. Maybe a newer 4 pot might be better. But, is it really worth it?

I have the six pots and they are much stronger than the originals. But I have to be careful in extreme braking because they can lock the wheel pretty easy, an ABS would be ideal !

I know people have swapped a newer master cylinder/unit to improve the braking response/feel. SS braided lines help too

I have SS braided lines also, and the feel is very good, but in a panic stop it's pretty easy to lock the front wheel because the added stopping power of the calipers. That never hapened to me with stock calipers, but I think the six pots have paid themselves saving my ass on at least two occasions.

I regularly watch DDFM on YT. I have bit of anxiety after my accident in dec. 2012. Watching his videos has helped me mitigate a lot of cues and situations that I would have normally not paid attention to previously.

Many on this board have.... its a fairly straight forward procedure.... in hindsight Id buy aftermarket rotors 1st, and NOT Chinese ones....
