No brake fading... better feedback... quicker stop/less distance to stop.

I really wouldn't bother with spending money on the rear lines, since the rear brake is hardly used.

I've heard a quote for lines from Motorcycles Unlimited and it was VERY reasonable - better than anything else I've heard quoted. (But I don't really go around getting quotes on SS lines)

I have Galfer silver (they come in a ton of colors) stainless steel braided brake lines on my bike with a clear rubber coating on them. After the 2CT tires this upgrade is my favorite. On most bikes with a twin rotor setup it is a pain to bleed the brakes perfectly without a vacuum bleeder because they use a single line to feed both calipers. SS lines make it where there is one line per caliper. I can help you if you get the lines. I also recommend picking up some Goodrich quick bleeder valves to make everything easier and to ensure that air NEVER gets into your lines. I noticed a massive difference in stopping capability and I have it front and rear. Come in handy when you want to lock you back tire.

I got mine from an online vender for $115 with no tax free shipping and a bottle of DOT4 fluid. I'm sure you can get a similar deal locally.

I would be glad to stop by your house and show/talk to you more about it.

Ditto on the vacuum bleeder, made the job much easier. This is a fairly simple do it yourself project.
