Front Brake Changes 2010 vs 2011 Z1000?

Hi all,

The factory part numbers for the front brake hose changes between 2010 and 2011 for the Z1000. I can't understand why, but the calipers also change numbers.

Does anyone know what changed or why the hose was changed?

Perhaps this may shed some light. Taken from another forum...

There were some super minor revisions to where the front brake lines were hung and run
because of potential wearing on the very early 2010's. This was a recall on a specific run of VINs.

I haven't really paid attention, but did they change the colors on the calipers?

As for the recall, They might have added a tougher outer coating/insulator to them to help with the left line's rubbing/wearing through issue that some early '10s had.

Here's the related recall from NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) -
