I can't give you advice on rear braking into the turn but I did upgrade the pads and lines for the rear. I don't use the rear break, but it came as a pkg from motomummy

I have never used a SS rear line. All of the bikes Ive owned had more than enough braking power to lock up the wheel at any time.

I dont have ss lines for the rear. And the pads are the cheapest I could find. My street bike had 16k miles on teh same pad. The only reason I had to get new rears for my track bike is cuz apparently the dude I bought it from used the out of them. Which might explain why the bike had been crashed twice. I never touch the rear brake, unless I am in the infield for some reason. But thats just me.

I dont think they do that with the brake mang. I could be wrong. It was explained to me that if you are trying to go fast, then why the would you be on the brakes. lol

Jason, what they do to line the rear up is not what it seems,the end gets loose from the speed they are doing + front dipping from braking + downshifting. I would just do the pads at the most but since you already got the kit throw it on for looks.

if your talking about "backing it in" its all done with the front brake, they might tap the rear to stop the momentum of the engine turning.

I concur with Gabe. My current racer came with an SS rear line, as did my old 125 and 250 GP bikes, of course, but none of my production-based bikes had SS rear lines and I never missed it. For the average track day guy - and for the average racer, too - SS lines on the rear are extraneous. I'd spend my money elsewhere unless you're trying to earn some posuer points. If so, get Pazzo levers, too. (How's that, Gabe?)
