Goodridge makes nice ones, Galfer, there's some others.

Doesn't really matter as long as they're stainless braided or kevlar/ stainless. One brand is not particularly better than any other.

I love mine made a night to day difference but i also put a Brembo m/c on it at the same time. There is no sponge feel at at in the front brakes now, very firm and consitant braking. I think i paid 130 shipped for mine, Both front lines, 3 stainless banjos, HH brake pads, and a quart of galfer brake fluid

I used Galfer last year, they were great. Placed and order for Spiegler's yesterday, going to use them in conjunction with a Brambo m/c and vesrah RJL's this season, see if i can scare myself.

All the manufacturers seem comparable in price, so maybe it just comes down to preference or if your into colored lines.

wow customer service for galfer is awsome, just got off the phone with them cause i saw some rust spots on one of the banjos when I went out side to go check where i got them from, they are sending me a new set for the front. Very nice and easy to deal with no hassle

Im just sticking with the conventional clucth setup with my pazzo shorty lever on that side. I ordered my stuff yesterday from Motomummy and its was ponted out to me that if you DO order the Brembo M/C to be sure and tell them that for your brake lines so they will provide the correct banjo bolt setup.

EDIT: Also if going with the brembo, apparently you can "get away with" the stock reservoiur, and i guess some folks have, but i read it is highly NOT recommended. Brembo has a different size nipple than stock. This is all according to my reading about this yesterday, i have not personally done this yet, so that should be noted. But, that being said, i did also get the correct reservoir and hose setup to go along with the bremo M/C.

I run the stock clutch setup as well and I've not had an issue. I just flushed the clutch fluid again, however. Second time since I've owned the bike.

I run a pazzo clutch lever, a long one and I like it. Did y'all know that Pazzo makes a lever for the brembo? I don't have one, but it would be nice bling.

Seriously consider the Brembo RCS master cylinder. You can buy the brake light micro switch for it which works much better than the pressure switch.

I saw that yesterday Curt, about the pazzo lever anyways. Did you know apparently CRG also makes one, the roll a click, and i saw it yesterday listed at like $290.00 or so for just the lever?!?!?!?!?!??! Holy !!!!!!!!!!!

I also saw a COUPLE folks discussing the clutch setup by Brembo and they were having some problems getting it to properly disnegage and engage apparently. Something to due with the amount of volume not being the same or enough........but i didnt finish reading all of it.

I might, just might, switch from the 19x18 to the RCS this year. I have a touch of play in the lever that I'd like to see if I can get rid of. The probably moves 1/4 of an inch or a little more before it grabs, as measured from the center of the grip. It's not spongy, it's seems to be a touch of play before the master cylinder begins to compress the fluid. It would be nice to have that COMPLETELY gone.

Yeah it will fix you problem of that! The only problem I had with mine were they were stopping the bike before i could pull it far enough to engage the micro switch! The rcs got kicked out of kindergarden cause they didnt go to recess......They Dont Play!
