Braided brake hoses / lines

Hi guys,

I'm looking to change my OEM brake hoses to braided ones (possibly the Spiegler brand). Any thoughts on if this would be a noticeable improvement and any suggestions as to what hose configurations to go with (eliminate the original hose block, or not?).

Tanks!

I have Speigler set on mine which are great, they're black and I didn't realise what they were till after I bought a set of SS GOODRIDGE which are now just sitting around doing nothing. If you want those let me know but I don't blame you if you want new. They don't have the banjo bolts or crush washers so you would need those.

I've not ridden with OEM in a long time but I can tell you, you will notice the difference. I have the double banjo fitting at the front master cylinder on my speiglers.

Has just realized that I don't care what it costs until I get the bill! :roll eyes: ...

how much do you want for the lines, are the 10mm banjo bolts the ones that are needed?
