I've had these on a few bikes throughout the years, most recently on my KTM 450 XCR-W. They are strong, fairly light weight, internally sprung (no lost springs), they don't come down on hard hits and tuck up behind the bike's side plate. As a bonus, they take the typically ugly (but functional) kickstand and make it look good.
Downside? Not the cheapest option, but IMHO, the best.
Core Moto has stormed on the scene with their new stainless braided brake line kits. We have worked with them since the beginning and have used their lines on several of our builds as well as selling 100's of them to our customers. When we get asked for brake line recommendation, we always mention Core Moto First. Core Moto SS performance brake lines are made in the USA using the highest quality materials and machinery available. We strive to make the best quality product on the market and are constantly looking for ways to make our brake lines better. The level of quality materials and processes used to make each Core Moto brake or clutch line is felt directly by the person operating the motorcycle they were installed on. Core Moto brake lines are the most customizable brake lines on the market, ensuring you have a truly unique product that will stand out from the rest.
Core Moto brake lines are made in the USA and have a LIFETIME WARRANTY against leaks, breaks, ruptures and any type of failure of function.
Core Moto lines are made custom to each order and usually ready to ship same day.
Why Choose Stainless over Rubber hoses? OEM rubber hoses expand and swell, especially under extreme braking conditions. This expansion results in what is often described as a spongy feel or brake fade. Most motorcycle manufacturers recommend that your OEM rubber brake lines be replaced every 4 years when used under normal conditions.
Core Moto Performance lines are good for the life of the motorcycle.
Core Moto lines do not expand under pressure or fatigue. All braking input is transmitted from the master cylinder directly to the calipers, giving you complete control, feel and feedback from the final point in the braking system. Total brake response and performance is improved with this often overlooked yet simple modification.
