Looking to switch to SS barke lines, rebuild calipers and replace pads. Would like suggestions on best value manufactuers, product model part numbers and where to purchase. Thanks

I put GALFER stainless lines (TWO on the front, so NO over-the fender line), and on the rear (REALLY improved the 'feel' of the rear brakes) on my '08.







On the front I added a spacer from the hardware store and longer bolts so my handguards would NOT 'foul' the SS brake lines.

Fasteddie. Thanks for the info and photos.

Looking at Core lines made in USA. Front and rear set around $120. Anyone have experience with this brand?

I put Core lines on my 2008 650, about a year ago. I like the improvement in feel. I had to send one set of lines back because they leaked at the banjos. But the new ones have been fine. I would highly recommend them. Pay attention when installing them. At least for Gen 1 bikes, the line routing is entirely different. Just follow the directions, not how you think they should go.

I replaced the pads on my Gen 1 w/ EBC HH pads, FA192HH for the rear [at 80,5xx miles I'm STILL on the OEM pads, and I DO use the rear brakes!], and FA229HH and FA231HH on the front. I also replaced the front discs at the same time.
