SS/kevlar Brake Line? Best Feel?

What brands have you guys liked and used?

Im kinda partial to the SS rather than the kevlar just cuz all the kev i have seen are blue, and i dont like blue.....

Also what would be the best front pads for everyday ridin, occasional track time/mountain runs?

Goodridge Steel Braided lines have great feel. Many AMA and CMRA racers use them.

they both feel the same, only the kevlar is lighter and generally, slightly more expensive.

Kevler are lighter weight, but are more vulnerable to damage.
All of the lines use a teflon PFTE liner for the actual inner tubing.

Goodridge, Russell, HEL and Galfer all make good lines.

Just as important as lines is fresh, good quality brake fluid and premium pads.

Send me a PM or give me a shout at the shop if you'd like a quote.

about the mountains, last mountains i was in was colorado, spent a week there. May go to georgia over spring break, or cruise on down to florida (not for the mountains...)

Patrick what pads and fluid would you suggest? I have stock rotors and plan on keepin them stock. I got a bottle of DOT 4 fluid from O reily to do a complete flush of my brake system when new lines are installed. Speakin of that, Do you use a vacuum bleeder in your shop? Hand pump?

As stated, I like the EBC GFA pads and Motul RBF fluid.
We use an air powered vacuum pump.
