Braided steel brake lines?

Well, I guess it's time to throw more money at the bike. Anybody have a line (heh heh) on who has teflon lined SS braided lines for the 400E?

Ex-squeez me??? (heh-heh)I noticed that Vinny sstated that these brake lines improve the braking, but how much does it? I have have not rode a bike with these brake lines.


Braided lines are always an improvement, especially on the front...I've done XR250, XR400, KLR 650...all a major improvement, but be sure they have some sort of cover, other wise the SS braid will saw stuff in half!

"twist" them your self

it isnt hard to come by the bulk line or ends

it will be way cheaper and the only down fall is that u have to shrink wrap it your self

and you might jab your fingers a few times in the process


Do you know anything about an RM250 rear line fitting the DR-Z? I looked at a DR-Z and an RM250 side-by-side at the local dealership - the master cyl., distance, bends, caliper all look identical. Do you know if ANY manufacturer has listed a part number for a rear SS line for the DR-Z? It would be a pleasure during my street riding to have improved feel on the rear too.

Fastline makes a good one. You can also use a Russell if they have one out yet for the DR-Z - not sure. You can get a Fastline though Baja Designs or your local shop.

I have a Fastline for the front. Man what a difference. It almost feels like my Honda brakes

Galfer brakelines are the why to go I sell Fastline and Galfer the Galfer much better quality same price

I went to Baja Designs and they have the Russel's for $56. White Brothers has the Fastline's. As far as the the rear goes, Galfer's web site has a part number for the rear line , but I could not find anyone on the web that sells it.

I copied the following from Galfer. It shows the same part number for the front and rears the some of the RM's and RMX's but diff. kit numbers.

      I've read a lot of threads about this but still haven't found exactly what I'm looking for.  I'm pulling my 2004 DRZ400S out of storage sometime this week and getting it ready for the season.  I live at 9,000 ft, but my first ride of the year is probably going to be at around 5,000 ft.  I was going to pull the 145 main jet I'm running and put in the 150 adjusting the needle from the 2 clip to the 3rd, then re-jet once I got home.  I already have the extended fuel mixture screw in place so I started thinking that I should just run the 150 jet set up and adjust the fuel screw to compensate for the higher elevation where I'll be doing most of my riding.  I will be going down in elevation for rides until late May or June depending on snowfall, but riding on the street when I'm able.  Are there any disadvantages with this?
      I'm new to posting on this forum, so please forgive me if I didn't get the right search words in and there is already a post about this.

      Good Morning,
        Last night I measured my valve clearances for the very first time (I know...) on my DRZ400S.  It's a 2002 and I've owned is since 2011.  I bought it with t's got about 15,000 miles on it and most of it's miles these days are on dirt.
      Intake specs are 0.10-0.20 mm.  Exhaust specs are 0.20-0.30
      My intake valve clearances are in spec, forgot to write them down.  My exhaust valve clearances are between 0.1778 and 0.2032 which is slightly out of spec.  They are no more than 25 microns out of spec.  My question is, do I really need to shim these?  Will this kind of out-of-spec cause performance, mechanical, or other losses?  As far as I can tell, I'd have to buy a whole shim kit which is like $80.  Thanks!

      Currently have a 2000 drz400s work stock suspension. From my understanding this is the worst suspension the drz ever came with without even rebound damping adjustment. Therefore I'm looking for a upgrade. I'm seeing three approaches to take. First being a newer year s model suspension with dampening adjustment. A SM model USD forks and triple tree or some USD forks and triple tree from a rmz. So if you were going to upgrade what direction would you go. I currently ride off-road mostly but I do have some 17s for on road with as well so have to keep that in mind. Thanks
