6 Pots For The Versys?

I have a set of four pots coming for my ZRX. That will leave me wondering what to do with the leftover six pots from the ZRX.
I can't get out to my shed right now to take a look due to the snow and ice still on the ground.
Does anybody know off hand if they will bolt up to the Versys?

They won't, you'll need the same adapter that is needed for the 4 pot calipers.

Thanks I'll look into that.
Any links pointing to the adapter?

Yes, number of pistons in the caliper.
Marc Cook from Motorcyclist posted the needed hardware and spacers on this site awhile back. Hopefully a search will find it

Yes, even though four pistons offer better feel I have the six piston calipers on hand. And they are in excellent condition.
One of the downsides is..if you have to rebuild them you have a total of twelve pistons up front. Things can get a little spendy.

I prefer the four pots but I'll have the six pots from the ZRX looking for a home.

Hmmm. I thought he was trying to find a new Colorado sampler pack. Amnesia Wreck looks like a funky new bud that will go with most any ensemble...
