sounds pretty normal to me. Anything that starts w/ motorcycle costs at least twice as much. Anything that starts w/ marine is the same way. Do some searching around, you might find better prices. Somebody's always got what your looking cheaper.

Remember that 2003 and newer are more expensive.

Just so you know, the 2003 come with 6 piston calipers which means you're litterally getting 2 pads per caliper....4 seperate pads for the front of the bike...they come 2 packaged together, so you will only need to buy 2 packages for the front brakes, but you will deifnatly find them to be expensive....I sell EBC double H and they run about $64.99 each side retail.....
Welcome to the word of motorcycles....even if this is your main transportation they are considered a luxury! New riders can't figure out why a "simple" oil change is gonna cost them close to $50!! HAHA...poor guys had no idea when they bought their bikes what they were getting into!!

Unlike older ZX-6Rs, the new bike comes with four-piston calipers. Each caliper takes four pads, so a set now costs more.
