Installation is easy and product fit the machine perfectly. Make sure to tighten the lines at the T though as they will leak if not. I don't think it's a factory standard to pre tighten the lines at the T

Galfer's standard brake line kits are anything but standard. They start off by using high-quality machined banjo fittings and bolts. Kits are bike specific and are tailored to each bike for perfect fit and finish. Unlike many other manufacturers, Galfer pre-positions their banjo fittings for an out-of-the-box fit. But, if you need to fine-tune them, you can adjust their position.
Most Galfer brake line kits come with labels on the lines to help guide you on which end goes where, something not found with any other manufacturer today. They also offer a lifetime guarantee against any manufacturing defects.
- Instructions for most applications.
- Virgin PTFE.
- 64 lines of steel braid.
- Pre-positioned banjos for easy installation, although adjustable as needed by hand.
- Made in the U.S.A.
- Lifetime warranty.
I bought these for a '99 ex500. Everything fit perfectly and works great. Only complaint is that both the front and rear are longer than necessary. The front by close to 3 inches and the back by an inch and a half. It doesn't cause the line to crimp, but shorter would look cleaner in the 500.
Brake performance increased slightly. The brake line is a few inches longer than the stock line. The brake line wanted to go behind the number plate, which started to wear into the protective coating on the first ride. Long story short ended up buying new cable guide which helped and rapped line in electrical tape to keep it from wearing any further.
These galfer brake lines really make a world of a difference when you put them on you bike. Its like night and day when it comes to the stopping power when you switch over to these. I have had them on my bike for the past 3 weeks and they have been just great, and the price I could not pass it up when it comes to buy the fronts and get the rear free. This was a really great buy for me
First stainless line i have ever installed on any of my bikes. Wish i would have tried one a long time ago. Brake feel is so much better. I like it a lot.
Bought it because my stock line had ripped and was leaking, even tho I was concerned due to controversial reviews on it. Mounting was easy, everything lined up well with just some very minor adjustments. It looks awesome on the bike, length was right, fit was good. Bleeding was a bear, but after some persistency and some aid from Thumpertalk, it bled just fine. I noticed improvements in the braking performance instantaneously! Awesome feel, power and modulation! Can't speak for durability yet as I only have one ride on it, but it seems solid! For the price it's well worth buying steel lines over stock!
Installed a set on my 2007 Ninja 650. Fit perfect and made a HUGE difference in braking power feel and performance. Why did I wait to do this?
A little long but it does the trick.
"Kits are bike specific and are tailored to each bike for perfect fit." NOT TRUE. The front lines are made to fit a number of bikes. The line that jumps from the right caliper to the left is about 6 inches too long. This is by no means tailored to my bike and is far from a perfect fit.
Upgrading the brake system on my track bike. Swapped the OEM lines for these. They were a fantastic upgrade. I was able to brake much deeper into turns after feeling them out for a lap or two. Fitment was spot on, they look like what you would expect, and seem to have great quality. They should out last the bike!
Works well, but had a very difficult time building pressure after the install, also looks pretty beat up after only about 5 hours of use, I will replace with OEM on the next one. It gets marked up quickly by the tube it slides though when the front forks compress, and marked up my front number plate a bit. As far as function goes, it works as intended.
The lines I replaced were on a new bike. To stop was not an issue.
These lines allow you to feel yourself stop not just mash on something
like rubber until you see yourself slow and stop. The steel lines give you feedback and help you be a better rider. The pre-fit for my FZ 1 made installation almost too easy. If you like to go fast and do it well, you need these brake lines.
easy install, look grate and better feeling brake response.
I race arenas and need stopping power with the Galfer oversized rotors and lines you have all you need.I have been using breaking in the past both are equal.
high quality brake lines -
Easy installation and good instructions. Can't complain.
i am turning my bike into a supermoto and the fitment is tight with the added headlight however it performs and looks great
These braided SS lines MAY NOT fit your bike like the OEM lines as motosport says.
On my '05 R6 Galfer SS lines fit perfectly. They were great - feel, looks, installation, everything about them was great.
The lines I ordered for my '02 KX250 though, DO NOT FIT like the OEM lines. The bend in the fitting on the caliper end does not allow access to the brake pad pin. You would have to either re-bend the fitting on the line or losen the lines from the caliper to change brake pads. In the first instance, you risk damaging the lines, which i have done. With the second option, you would have to fill and re-bleed the brake fluid everytime you change pads.
Use caution and do a little research by calling Galfer or asking someone here at Motosport for guidance before ordering.
I'm sure on most bikes, the installation of these lines will be no-fuss. Also, I am a true believer in these lines when they do fit.
