09+ Calipers are different. They are the black Nissin Monoblocks.

You can use older years rotors with them without issue. I have a 2nd set of 08 wheels and rotors and have not had issue on my 09.

I highly recommend the Brembo RCS MC with the adjustment turned to the 'red' facing up. Also Markbuilt put in new pads for me about a month ago. Not sure what they are (will find out) but like them much better than the Carbon Lorriane Racing ones. More progressive feel, better for trail braking.

Can I simply (yea right, simply) install R6 Calipers on my 09+ Daytona with some spacers without changing my lines or master cylinder?
If so can someone point me in the right direction to the source for the spacers.
(I can't mod a potato head, more less anything with wheels)

My buddy just recently did this, I had him email me the following info:

Zoran makes the spacers:

You also need the bolts to mount the calipers they must be the Yamaha bolts. You can find them here from Pro-Bolts

I think that was the cheapest option. The brake lines are from Spiegler you can call them. Defiantly buy new banjo bolts for the calipers and the master cylinder. Don't take any chances reusing the existing parts. I bought all new personally.

That should be all you need to start that project.

Can anyone give me the information I would need to give a machinist to make the bolts for me?
I like to support my local machinist when possible, as long as the cost is not way out of line.

If I buy R6 calipers, can I use other R6 front brake components with my Daytona, such as:
1. Reservoir
2. Master Cylinder
3. Brake Lines
4. Pads

I am shopping for R6 calipers and some of them are sold with some or all of the components above, so I am wondering if they will work attached to my Daytona, either as single pieces or all together.

Thanks!

You can use an R6 reservoir. You can use an R6 master. You might be able to use R6 lines but the OEM ones are rubber and inferior to the Daytona's stock steel lines. You can use R6 pads with R6 calipers.
