Didnt feel like popping for a larger front disc & this steel braided brake line gave me that extra bit of smooth, strong stopping power I was looking for going down those long down hills that we have here in Northern Calif

My front brake was not doing it's job ,no air in the system just not enough pressure, the rear brake did more. This new line combined with a new caliper will lift the rear wheel enough to make it slide, something it never did before.
This was installed on a 2001 Honda CR250R. The brake line slips in its rubber sheathing. After one ride, the brake line had gotten wrapped up in my brand new Galfer rotor. Galfer rotors I highly recommend. Galfer brake line is garbage. I went back to a oem brake line and never had a problem since.
Quick shipping and great product
I bought this brake line to replace my OEM brake line when it started to leak. Why di I wait so long?!. The install was super easy since it fit exactly right. The feel in the brake lever is so much better and has increased stopping power. definitely wished I would have replaced the brake line earlier.
installed on 2013KX250F
Love the look. Fits great on the front of my '80 GL1100.
Installed both the rear and front Galfer kits on my R6. The rear was a great fit BUT the front was NOT. The right-front line was TOO SHORT. I managed to get it installed using different route for the line (not one described in instructions). However, the line conections on the bars get in the way of adjusting the position of the brake lever. The hose/line connections hit the brake lever bracket. All in all, a POOR fitment. Sent email to both MotoSport AND Galfer, but no response from EITHER.
These lines are fitted on my 1992 Honda XR250L. The overall construction of the brake lines is excellent, however the top line that connect to the master cylinder, in my opinion, is a little short. and the fitting that connects to the master cylinder in not quite in the proper orientation. The top appears to be in need of a couple more inches in length in order to prevent premature wear of the brake line in the slide holder. Overall, I am happy with the brake lines as they have improved the stopping power and lever feel. I would recommend Galfer Brake lines to anyone wanting to improve braking performance. I have also fitted SS Galfer Brake lines on my 2014 YZF R1 and 2014 FZ09 and I am very satisfied with the performance of the upgrade.
Installed on a 1998 GS500E. The label for the end that goes to the master cylinder appeared to be on the wrong end according to the bends. Also, I had to re-use my old caliper end banjo bolt because the threads were more course than the ones Galfer provided. I looked it up on the OEM parts diagram and the stock front caliper banjo bolt is indeed a different part number than the other 3 banjo bolts for the bike. Haven't been out to test on the road yet. Overall very happy with my purchase!
Great looking brake lines and installation was as easy as it could be for brake lines. Better rigid and consistent feel with better lever feel.
The brake line took away MOST of the mushy feeling my brake use to have. It looks great but this is the second line from Galfer I've seen that has gotten into the front rotor. My buddy bought this same line and first ride we looked down and the braided part had started making contact with the rotor causing it to have eaten away the clear coating and breaking the SS braid. What happens is the slack in the line will slide down the black tubing that you tighten down on the fork guard when the suspension compresses but it will not return back up to the handle bars. We were able to salvage it by rigging safety wire up on the line above the black tubing to keep the slack above the tubing and not below it. And now a few months later I bought the same line and forgot to safety wire it and it too got into the rotor. Both times we were able to salvage the line but still is a problem that needs addressed. Both bikes were 2016 kawi 450's. If we wouldn't have noticed any sooner the rotor would have ate through the line causing it to leak. All in all good product and looks good on the bike, just needs to have something to ensure this problem doesn't occur.
I sent this item back. The deal was great with the rear line thrown in for free. The problem I had was that it wasn't a like for like swap between the OEM arrangement and the Galfer. The front lines use a complete parallel setup which means it uses a longer banjo bolt and I read the longer bolts may hit the fairing at full lock. That combined with hose routing put me off.
I am happy with the lines now that they are installed, both could have been a tad bit longer. once i moved the reservoir on the bars, they fit
Truthfully, I haven't installed it yet.
The bike had really bad brakes before, mushy feeling, maybe needed to be bled. But put these on anyway and the brakes turned into something better than expected for feel and lever travel. The banjos lined up perfect with the master cylinder too, they don't always do that, some require a twist, these didn't. 2 lines separate from each other go from mc to the calipers. Mounting was easy, length perfect.
Replaced what I'm pretty sure were stock lines on a 31 year old bike. 1985 Honda CB700SC. Lines are the correct length and do not bind. Keep in mind that for this bike these lines bypass the T-junction entirely, which cannot be completely removed as it is part of the headlight support. So there will be a small section of unused hard mount, might make for a good secondary tool roll location.
Bleeding was a pain, which I am told is usual for a dual-brake front setup like this. Best to keep in mind it'll take a while, and require more brake fluid than you first think.
Stops much better now, though, and brake lever isn't mushy anymore. Well satisfied.
Awesum product to replace stock one.
I purchased front and rear Galfer brake lines and WOW!!! What a difference. This is the first bike I've replaced stock brake lines after 35+ years of riding. I was reading on Thumper Talk forum about must do upgrades, I was convinced to give them a try. These brake lines take a vague, spongey braking experience into a realm of great feedback and stoppie possibilities when ever you want. I was concerned with the brakes being too agressive for the dirt but with the great feel you get, it's vastly improved. As far as durability....we will see. But with the name Galfer behind it, I expect great things. Daily commuter and weekend rides
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
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.
