Spiegler.

Because you can lift your bike with them.








Also you can spin the fittings on each end of the line to avoid any annoying twists or kinks.

Not sure I would want to try that with my brake lines, and my gixxer is much lighter than that sv 1000. lol

Re: Need guideance. Braided brake lines

To be honest, it really doesnt matter. They all perform the same. So go with what you think looks the best.

But are there any others on the market where the banjo spins?

I've only used Galfer and Spiegler lines. Both great quality but being able to spin the Banjo is huge IMO.

Re: Need guideance. Braided brake lines

why? If they are properly designed they dont need to spin. They are oriented in such a way they line up naturally.

It is basically a gimnick to me, and if anything just an added potential place for failure.

Re: Need guideance. Braided brake lines

Well I've had a different experience then, I like being able to have them twist in optimal directions to have them route just right. The rear line on my DRZ wanted to lay right on the rear spring and was a definite pinch/wear hazard. I had to zip tie it to hold it away from the spring. Not a huge deal but if I put Spiegler's on it I could have just twisted the banjo and the line would route perfect.

Now where would be the best place to order. I typically try to avoid the dealership at all cost. But its been an adventure online. And not a good adventure.

I have coremoto lines on my bike and they not only look good but they improved the brake feel.

Re: Need guideance. Braided brake lines

How is the fit with the coremoto's? I'm thinking about getting white lines with black banjos and bolts. I have heard that with other lines like spiegler and galfer that they tend to run a little long?

The fit for the coremotos are fine. Just installed them a few months ago and have no problem. The only problem was with the fitting lining up right on the catch underneath the brake fluid housing in the front. Ended up getting them to fit. No colony's since being installed. 05 gsxr.

Re: Need guideance. Braided brake lines

I've used HEL and Goodridge.

Goodridge are better for older bikes, since you can specify length and they are swivel banjos.

disagreed. being pedantic, OEM brake lines should be replaced every 24 months. given the use/actual fucking need of replacing them, however, after a few years, i would replace it. i have replaced the rear line on both my bikes, (09 and 06) merely by waiting til a "sale" was put on at the 'mummy.

agreed. but, most people change to braided lines before their stock lines are due for changing anyway. once the 24 months comes up, find what's cheapest for the rear...

cite a source that says there is ANY plausible reason to need to change the front lines every 24 months, let alone the rear which rarely sees use
