    Braided Brake lines

    Has anyone fitted stainless braided brake lines to their Tracer? I am looking at perhaps buying a kit and doing the job myself. Any thoughts or comments appreciated.

    Fitted Hel Carbons on my 09 ABS (Not Tracer), also fitted EBC Sintered HH, massive difference, just make sure u change all of them, 7 in total on mine.. if not they feel crap.. i got a local dealer to do mine, got a fixed price. When I got it back I had a Weird sound 😫, like a dull beep when I turned the ignition on... so pulled the tank and airbox off to find they hadn't connected a pipe from airbox to AIS cut valve.. the fat one on the outside

    It was then I noticed stock brake pipes coming off ABS unit..... back it went...

    They sorted it for nowt of course..

    So i have experienced oem, 1/2 done and fully done.... now they are excellent, but you can feel the HH gripping and stopping is now much better...

    Hope that helps?

    And just to add, they put dot5 in, didn't like it... dot4 now back in after a flush and a much better feel, had to do a slow emergency avoidance and it controlled brilliantly....

    Thanks MT09-Smurf - much appreciated. I will do some more research on braided line kits as there do not seem to be any available here so will inevitably have to do the online thing. There must be others out there who have had some experience with them or am I one of the few muppets left who do their own work on their bikes??

    I to am a convert to EBC HH pads and have used them on all my bikes (except my current BMW GSA) as I find them much much better than stock and they give a good progressive fade free feel for little capital outlay - they are awesome and I now wouldn't use anything else. Also noted your comments about Dot 4 fluid (thanks).
