Yana Shiki brake lines are considered one of the best quality brake lines available in the market. Each line uses stainless steel fittings and has been tested rigorously. All lines are guaranteed for life and every kit includes a lifetime replacement card.
Some of the benefits a rider will be afforded by using Yana Shiki brake lines:
All of HEL brake line kits include stainless steel fittings, stainless steel ferrules, stainless steel Teflon® hose, stainless steel banjo bolts, and copper washers to offer you a complete installation. HEL kits also come with Yana Shiki's lifetime warranty card, warranty application form, and HEL Performance stickers.
HEL stainless steel fittings are swaged directly onto the 32 strand cold drawn tensile stainless braided Teflon® tubes. Yana Shiki uses only Teflon® PTFE interior as opposed to the PTFE interior. The difference in performance is quite remarkable as Yana Shiki stainless steel lines can be bent 18,000,000 times before rupture against only 750,000 bends of the standard PTFE used by other companies.
Hoses have been batch tested to 18,000 PSI without a recorded failure. More commonly, assemblies are tested to 5,000 PSI (normal motorcycle braking pressure is 800 - 1,000 PSI) offering a high safety factor.
HEL hoses eliminate that spongy feeling often found with rubber hoses under extreme braking conditions - when you need their performance the most. The stainless steel exterior provides excellent resistance to both corrosion and abrasion.
