So anybody got any prior experience with braided Kevlar lines?
I considered them, but stayed with braided steel instead.

|jgos929||I have the Goodrich on mine and they work great. Personaly steel braid is steel braid. I honestly don't think anyone could tell the difference between them but who knows. The Galfer superbike lines for the front are badass though|

I think braided anything is the way to go.
I've used Galfer and Spiegler.
I haven't used Goodrich simply because the others were a bit cheaper, however they are very nice lines.
I tried Spiegler lately because they have a slip joint near the banjo eyelet that allows you to rotate the fitting for better alignment with no potential line twisting.
Was more expensive than Galfer, otherwise no real difference.

|jgos929||Glad you like the RC. I came from a 00 R1 Champions Edition and damn I loved that bike. It was fast as hell. But I love my RC, I feel more confident on it when riding. Do the steel braided lines It helps out tremendously.|

honestly it took a bit to get used to. First day off the showroom floor leaving the dealer parking lot i high sided at 5mph, ouch it hurt, broken wrist and scratched ego... i looked like such a noob! the tires actually had the shine oil they use to shine up the bikes on it they compt. some parts
i liked the power range of the R1, so the different power delivery from the twin took some getting used to as well. Especially when it came to passing traffic, exiting corners and all. the flapper mod and new exhaust definetly helped there... but the balance through corners and its straight line balance is superb to the yam. i had steel lines on the r1 and it seemed to stop much faster w/ more confidence... but i haven't done the steel lines on the rc yet sooooo...
the fzr 600 is no comparison to either bike, it was a true beginners bike... very forgiving when clutch was accidently completely released in first gear with wide open throttle i was a noob then lol

So you came from a 4-cylinder liter bike and 600.
How do you like the v-twin difference?
