So My next mod is going to be brake lines. The only problem is that I do not know what brand to buy. Both seem to priced at about $80-$100. I want ones that are black and that's my only real requirement.

What kind would you recommend?

Brake lines are brake lines for the most part. Whatever you can get easily.

spiegler brake lines have swivles at the ends making them crazy easy to install. Thats what i run on my ride. I have installed 2 sets of galfer on cbr's and was so pissed that the ends didn't swivel and didn't want to line up smoothly.

ZX-6 R 07 - alt. 2-line Front 2 S-KA0305 $109.95

ZX-6 R 07 - orig. over the fender Front 2 S-KA0304 $109.95

ZX-6 R 07- orig. Rear 1 S-KA0306 $56.95

direct from speglier. YOu can get the over the fender setup like the way the stock lines are run, or the 2 lines from the front master cylinder one line to each caliper. There customer service is amazing. I called up and got the owner actually, he hand drew me a picture of how to run the lines and was very helpfull.

Don't worry about the brand. Buy what ever you can get for the right price. You can't go wrong with either and if there is a difference I am sure only the top pros would notice it.

Don't quote me but I think it is more even/consistant braking between the 2 calipers.

I have stainless steel Goodridge and they work great, over 7,000 miles on them and no problems.

I kinda doubt Goodridge are made in China.. Goodridge also makes seats for commercial and military aircraft here in Phoenix AZ.

Thanks, I was wondering if it was a purely aesthetic thing or had any real benefit
