2001 R6 calipers fit my '09 Wee?

I've got a chance to get a pair of R6 calipers for little or no jack. I searched here on a couple of thread categories and couldn't find any thing specific for this swap. I don't actually have the parts in hand yet, and I don't want to grab the parts from the owner if they won't work.

Any ideas?

I switched out my OE calipers for Nissin. And boy, what an improvement in braking performance.

I totally agree. Probably the best thing I ever did for my Wee!

I'm rebuilding a second set of cbr nissin calipers now. Lots of cleaning, new paint, new bolts, and polished the 8 pots.

I'd be interested in hearing more about this and possibly riding with either of you in the future!
