I was wondering if anyone ever tried to install the brake caliper of '07 R1 onto '06 R1? Any suggestions r welcomed

I guess we have to go w/ the route of using '07 wheels to match the same bolt patterns and spacing specs.

I think you misunderstood me. I want the 6 piston '07 calipers however, '07 disc is 10mm smaller than '06. Yes, you're right regarding that I have to measure the rotors holes. I'm not positively sure that the repair manual has that info. Now, who in this forum has that info?

The front wheel is the same. So I would think that the rotors would bolt up just fine. However, some things as far as spacing is concerned, is the bolt spacing for the calipers, and the angle that they sit at. Also, would stock brake lines or an aftermarket setup already in place work?

You need 07 wheel bearings, axle and front forks for it to work.
Axles are the same, but the bearings are different. But the inner and outer diameters would be the same since the wheels and axles are the same. Widths could be different, and All Balls doesn't show a kit yet that I saw online.

I'm thinking for better braking and feel you might be better off with a good set of pads and a Brembo master cylinder. Unless of course you can come across a set of used forks and calipers at a decent price.
