This is a comprehensive list of parts from other bikes (or unique/creative mods) that will directly (or w/ minor modification) fit on 1st generation Z1K's ('03-'06). What do you know or have tried on yours? I will add to this list as the inputs come in. :)

**The listing you see on this FIRST post is current as of post #164!


SUSPENSION / STEERING

Forks
- 03-08 ZX6R
Mods Required: None, the triple clamps are the same.

- 06-07 ZX10
You have to press z1000 stem into ZX10 2006-07 lower triple. Check the following link for help: http://www.riderforums.com/showthread.php?t=41243
** 2004-2007 ZX10 forks are okay.
** 2008 ZX10 forks are too long.


Shocks
- 03-05 ZX6R
Mods Required: The '05 636 shock will NOT directly bolt in. The lower legs on the 636 shock are 2mm closer together, and there is a spacer inside the shock linkage which will not fit into it. Need to have 1mm milled out of the inside of each shock leg to get it to bolt in.

- '05 ZX10R
Mods Required: I've personally got one, just haven't installed it yet. Mods TBD...

- 01-04 GSXR600
Mods Required: Minor clearance probs, slightly too short

Swingarm
- 98-02 ZX6, ZX9, and ZX12

Dog Bones
- ZX9 or ZX6
Mods Required: None required

BRAKES

Rotors
- ZX10R Wave Rotors - fronts DO NOT fit, the mounting holes are offset

- z1000(03-06), ZX12R(05-07), and ZR-7S(03-05) front brake rotors are all the same

**Additional info from DynaGrego:

Z1000 03-06 can use 320 original rotors from the following Kawasaki models.

ZX 7 '91-'03,ZX-9R NINJA '94-'97,ZX-9R NINJA '02-'03,ZX 1100 '93-'01,ZZR 1100 '93-'01,ZZR 1200 '02-'05,ZX-12 R '00-'03,VN 1500 MEAN STREAK '02-'03,VN 1600 MEAN STREAK '04.

Mods Required: None



Master Cylinder

**Info from DrRipper:

"FYI, 05 zx6 master cylinder bore is 16mm, 09 zx-14 radial 11/16" (17mm), 08 triumph daytona radial 3/4" (19mm). Daytona master has the banjo coming out more towards the back and obstruct the throttle cable slightly (rotate right side switch housing slightly to clear the banjo). ZX14 is better. daytona nipple (for reservoir) is from the side, 90degree upwards, while zx14 is from the top, 90degree pointing sideway. Those who are picky about reservoir placement for aesthetic reasons will want to consider these small issues."

Calipers
- 2001-2003 GSXR 600/750/1000 calipers
Mods Required: May require creative brake line routing or longer hoses

More info, courtesy Dynagrego:
SIX POT CALIPER from GSXR1000 K2! (longer hoses required)



OEM CALIPER.



:glassestiCOMPARE.



COMPARE AGAIN(BOTTOMS)


Compare pads.





Another setup, courtesy Dynagrego:

"Calipers from ZX10 2008-2010 is a direct swap when using forks from ZX6R.They are better than older radial calipers because they are using 2 pads instead of 4. I have also installed a pair of 320mm rotors and I can't believe how strong the front brake is now."



The parts you are going to need are:
1)Four long caliper bolts Μ10 Χ 70mm Χ 1.25 from yamaha R1 2004-2008.
2)Four common spacers for M10 bolts,2mm thick(photo).
3)Longer hoses.
Kawasaki also uses these calipers on the new 2011 ZX10. They must be good.



Wanted to add to the list.





Calipers I used on the 05 636 forks are from a 07 CBR1000rr.
Mods were to use a 5mm spacer(51497-MEL-D20). You have to machine down one side of these spacers. The pic shows what you have to do.

These calipers were cheaper than trying to find some of the zx14 types and they work very well. I don't have any good measuring devices to give you an actual number on distance between the caliper bolts, but like UglyMutt said, most radial calipers are the same. All the CBR calipers that I talked about should be interchangable. I had to use 5mm spacers on the 07 cbr1000rr calipers with my 05/06 zx6 forks. I don't know about the 08/09 calipers, but I am betting that they will need some too.

If you are ordering Brembo calipers, just tell them what forks you are putting them on and they will be able to make sure you get the right ones

Well, you definately need to include years. This is off the top of my head, I will try to update as I think of more.

dont forget the 2000-2003 zx9 flywheel/stator/stator cover mod. i also think i read somewhere that zx-12 swingarms fit the z1000, but i'm not 100% on that.

Swingarm extension off of 98-02 zx6, zx9, and zx12 fit the Z.

ZX9 or ZX6 Dog bones work. No mods needed with either.

Stator/flywheel mod requires lengthening (sp) the wires by about 5-6 inches.

As for the swingarm I don't think anyone bolts directly on, b/c the shock linkage location is offset on the Z to one side, and I think it is the opposite on the other bikes. Could be wrong.....

Clutch lever & Perch: Almost any Kawasaki cable clutch & perch will fit. I have a 98ZX6R on mine, which is adjustable.

Also: The '05 636 shock will NOT directly bolt in. The lower legs on the 636 shock are 2mm closer together, and there is a spacer inside the shock linkage which will not fit into it. I had to have 1mm milled out of the inside of each shock leg to get it to bolt in.... now it works like a charm, though.

ZX10R Wave Rotors. 300mm Front and 220mm Rear. I have some on the way and will check back here after I am 100% certain they fit. Same sizes anyway, so they should fit.:alcy:

Hopefully the inner bolt spacing is the same. Keep me updated on this NS_Red_Zed. If it works I'll throw it up on the list. :)

air filter

does a zx9 air filter fit into the Z?

Also, what should a person pay for a stock air filter? my local kawi shop is asking like 60 CAD, seems steep to me when a K/N filter is the same price!

The zx9 has ram air and a completely different airbox.

Have you checked places like ronayers.com for the OEM filter?

I saw a pic recently of a Z1K with a tapered cone type air filter sticking out the side. I would like to know more about this one. Obviously that guy did away with the stock airbox.

Just threw up the latest updates (brake rotors, calipers). I think I'm getting all ate up on this now. I have have been caught a few times gawking up close and heavily upon others bikes in various parking lots, looking for ideas and things that might fit. I think I'm going to take my steel ruler with me in the car. :D

I would imagine that rearsets would be intrerchangable with other models if it were not for the fact that our mufflers bolt to them as well. If there was a way to make a bracket that would attatche somewhere else like the subframe. you might be able to use rearsets from a different bike.
