Hello to all
This posting is to bring to the attention all those with the potent new little Ninja, which although is quite an inspiring package right off the showroom floor, the brakes are left behind.
Though surely adequate for most street work, when pushed to genuine race pace on the track, they're prone to overheating and distortion.

We work with the good folks over at Quarterly Racing / On Track Development team who campaign the hotly contested Liqui Moly Junior Cup series here stateside. They discovered early on the OE rotors are simply not up to the rigors de jure of racing. We developed a highly targeted and lightweight solution that not only improved race track performance with higher performance parameters and reliability, but with a significant reduction in unsprung weight as well:


400 Ninja Race Rotors & Pads

BrakeTech USA is pleased to announce the introduction of our new racing brake kits for the hot 400 Ninja. The patented AXIS series full-floaters come in two different material systems depending on the class structure and rules. The new 310mm x 5mm Supersport race-spec floaters are available in the AXIS/Cobra stainless as well as our billet Iron series, both lighter than the semi-floating OE unit. They provide substantially greater levels of performance and thermal stability over the OE rotor. In addition, we're also offering a limited addition version at 310mm x 6mm for tracks that are extremely hard on brakes.

We have commissioned Ferodo Racing to manufacture custom race pads in the new CPro compound to compliment the package. These are custom made to our spec at 8.5mm thick vs the OE at 7.5mm



Comparative weights:

• OE; 3lbs 3.9oz (1470g)


310mm x 5mm Full-Floater


• AXIS/Cobra SS; 2lbs 12.0oz (1247g)
• AXIS/Iron; 2lbs 10.5oz (1206g)


310mm x 6mm Full-Floater


• AXIS/Cobra SS; 3lbs 4.0oz (1474g)
• AXIS/Iron; 3lbs 3.7oz (1465g)

Of course upgrading to braided stainless steel brake lines should be considered a must as well. And as a caveat, be wary of replacing the OE master-cylinders sourced from other models as they very likely may not provide the desired end result. The brake pump piston size must be carefully matched to the total displacement area of the calipers pistons. Best to leave that to pros like Spears Racing Enterprises who specialize in these small giant killers
