Pretty much all radial calipers of all the Japanese bikes are interchangeable. Meaning the bolt holes on the calipers are all the same distance apart. It's just that with some swaps you may need spacers to account for rotor diameter.

As for your specific question, yes, they will fit. I'm running 09 CBR600RR calipers on my 07/08 ZX6R forks. I had to use 5 mm spacers, but they bolt right up. I chose these due to the monoblock construction and good reviews by others on the forums.

yes. i have 07 cbr600rr calipers on my 04 GSXR front end. only difference may be offset and need for spacers, but they will bolt on.

I have 08+ CBR1000RR calipers on my 07 zx6r. I needed 5mm aluminum spacers, but I bodged it while I waited with 3X steel trailer washers per bolt. Made about the right height to clear the rotors.

Compared to the 07 Nissins they are MUCH lighter... but don't have the same feel at the lever OR the same initial grab as you're getting on the brakes.
