Front brakes - steel braided lines?

Recommended Posts

The forks are off and the front brake is just hanging there. I have never been to happy with the front stopping power of my DRZ. I have bleed them more than once to make sure that the system is air free. How much will a new steel braided line help my front stoppers? (a little, quite a bit, or lots?) And what company(s) makes them, who is the best one, and where can I get it at the best price? This is the time to do it - if I'm gunna! Burned, can you get me a master off of a used newer RM or CR or something? The newer masters are better that the DRZ's - right? When I ride my friends CR450, the front brakes make mine feel even worse!! You can only ride as fast as you can stop!!

the braided line makes a big difference.i would do that rather than the master first.if you still arent happy,check ebay.lots crf and yzf being parted out for quads!master should be easy to find.

i went to a braking over size rotor also!now im happy with the brakes.i like to be able to do stoppies on the down side of jumps.stock drz brakes will not do it!now its 2 fingers easy!

I wanted to do the same thing, but I decided to bleed it first to see if it would help. Now I can nose wheelie anywhere, anytime. You would not believe the air that came out of the bike when it was brand new. It was all stuck in the master cylinder.
