I finally broke down and purchased this kit after thinking about it for a while now. Boy am I glad I did! I have a MUCH stronger feel at the lever now and I do notice an increase in stopping power over the stock longer rubber line. My only complaint was that it came with a $9.00 cable guid that I didn't need. I'd rather save the $9.00 than have a part I don't need, but if that's what it takes to have better braking power, so be it! Installation was easy... might be helpful to have a second person to help bleed the brakes when finished installing the cable (I did), but again... a small step towards better front brakes. Very clean looking and very functional!
