It's not rocket science man, it should bolt right up as long as you have the correct brake lines. Can you post pictures of what you have going on now?

Lol. Is this a joke?

The mc clamps on just the same as the stock. Just need different lines like Jason said.

been working on the bike and here's what i got...my main concern is how the brake light switch is pushed up against the shock (see the third pic). what do you guys think? is that normal? i heard someone mentioning that an aftermarket clip on will solve the problem.

since your MC (attached to your clip on, which is attached to your fork tube) will move with the fork tube, if its touching it will be fine.

Yeah I wouldn't worry too much about the switch touching the fork leg. Fill up the reservoir, bleed the system, and freakin' ride. Enjoy the much improved stopping power! I'm running a 2009 CBR600RR front master cylinder and calipers. Wow what an improvement over the old ZX6R calipers and master (05/06 I mean).

When you place a radial master, is it really necessary to install a different brake line, or can you use the old one and just fold it a little?

You'll want to match the lines to the calipers and master cylinder. No sense with these bikes being older to upgrade those components and leave rubber lines. And the lines for the 07/08 are a bit shorter than the 05/06 lines.

Anything for an 07/08 will work. The superbike style (single outlet to a tee) would be the best, or you can rotate the throttle cables above the brake lever and use the normal dual banjo outlet. I can grab pics of my setup later tonight.

Neither is really better. I know the single outlet is more expensive.

Well, I have some stainless lines on the regular '03 ZX6R master cylinder, but I guess they need to be changed because they are too long? It's only 1 line on the master itself actually, then a second line going from caliper one to caliper two :)

That will work fine with the 03/04 calipers. But not the 05/06 or 07/08 versions.

the problem with running the 03/04 lines on a radial master cylinder (in lieu of linear) will be the bend of the banjo and how they are rotated on the lines before crimped.

if you can get the bolt in the master, your lines will be crazy distorted, twisted, or kinked.

Hey guys, I have found a ZZR1400 master cylinder for a good price and found an adapter to fit my current lines on the radial master :eek:
