    I have the “green light” from my wife, but we just agreed to aggressively pay off our last bit of debt. So I don’t feel right......

    They would look great in my Stites triples....then send my ZX14R forks to Daughtery for rebuild and slotting into the Connie.....

    It is a great plan......but I shouldn’t. Must keep focus.......

    Re: Please Someone Buy This Before Me!

    Well, they're going to be available again. I was looking at the ohlins site and noticed on one page they said these didn't work on the se model. Searched around on the calipers and found that the se model with the brembo brakes have a 100mm bolt spacing. The regular model with the nissin calipers has a 108mm spacing. Strange that Kawi used the 100mm m50 calipers instead of 108mm calipers that brembo also makes. Bummer

    I've asked them to cancel the purchase. If they won't I'll be putting them back up for sale.

    So you have an SE? So you would need a set of 108mm Nissins or Brembo calipers? You are not interested in making that change it sounds like?

    Re: Please Someone Buy This Before Me!

    It was kicking off a chain reaction and the cost was getting beyond what I was willing to pay. Keep in mind I already have Traxxion AK20 cartridges properly sprung in my stock forks. It already handles great. I have no doubt at all these would be better (and the bling would've been sweet) but how much better for how much $$. I'm probably buying a custom Dainese 2 piece D-air (air bag) suit over the winter too (have another 20 lbs to lose first).

    The Brembo brakes on it are incredible and I wouldn't want to roll back to Nissin's. I'd also have to replace brake lines because they connect in a very different location/angle (it already comes stock with stainless braided lines). The cheapest Brembo 108mm calipers I could find are $600 for the set (M4) - plus I'd probably need spacers ($?). So I was looking at:

    Forks $1550
    Calipers $600
    Spacers $?
    Braided lines $165
    -------
    ~$2315

    They were nice enough to cancel the sale and they are relisted: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Kawasaki-ZX...72.m2749.l2649
