This may sound a little newbistic, BUT:p: wherefor is it neccessary to change the OEM ones? Not just cosmetic wise?

Note: Fangshui should receive the Forum's product encyclopedia status

WikiFang here.

SS Braided Lines don't expand when lever is pulled, thus more/most of the applied force on the brake fluid from the master cyclinder piston is transmitted directly to the caliper.

So, much less/no lost braking force.

The cosmetic part is just an added bonus.

NOTE: replacing rear line isn't as beneficial/necessary as replacing the front line, but at this price, WTHN?

ALSO: I wish I could find more stuff that's available locally in Europe for EU members, since North American sellers don't always ship internationally, and even when they do it can be expensive. I search globally but sometimes language is an issue, especially when Google Translate mangles things! Anyway, I'm working on it, so stay tuned!

Made in the USA :$65.00

Superbike Brake Lines: This kit has a Dash 3 inner Features 16 braided lines of steel around the inner teflon, and all lines are coated with PVC protective coating. Also prevents scratches on the bike and keep fluid from being affected by humidity. Threads directly into calipers without use of banjo bolts, allowing for smoother and more effective flow of brake fluid. Provides stronger lever feel and quicker stopping power because it creates better pressure to the caliper.*Recommended for race use only.

An even better price on the SuperBike lines!

I posted on the others because of price AND because they come in 5 different colors.

Any updates on these?

Looking to upgrade the brakes on my R3 as well and was wondering what the thoughts were on the upgrade? How much did braking improve with the steel lines?

I bought a pair early last week, not sure when I'll get them/ get them on my bike, but when I do I will for sure post a little about them and my personal opinion
