Brake Lines

I'm looking to upgrade my brake lines. Not sure who to use, spiegler or galfer? What do you guys think. Should I even do it? Should I upgrade something else before doing the lines?

Thanks for the help.

Braided brake lines will give you a more direct feel, they won't be as "mushy". I don't think brand matters all that much as long as it's a reputable brand and not ebay garbage. I have HEL lines and I have no complaints. Have you upgraded your brake pads? That would probably be the the cheapest/easiest swap that will make a bigger difference.

You don't really need up graded lines unless your racing or stunting.

You need to hit up the track and see what your bike can really do.
Also when are you going to get 600 or a 1000cc?

Check out moto core brake lines I just ordered a set the other day the price isn't bad and they come with stainless steel bolts cause I hear the aluminum bolts get warped easy. And look into them ez bleed screws for the calipers. I have a set I like them

I disagree with Donte. if you don't like the feel of your brakes, then by all means, upgrade them. Brakes are the #1 most important part of your bike on both street and track (i would rank suspension work as #2).

Some good sintered pads and some lines are well worth the money.

and yes, you outta try out a track day. you'll learn a lot.
