Picked up some Galfer superbike steel braided front brake lines. Will install hopefully tonight and give a review next week. Quality of the lines and fittings seam to be very high.

Installation:

Make sure you have all items within the kit. Double banjo bolt, 7 washers (5 will be used, 2 extra), 2 adaptor fittings, 2 braided lines.

Use a good quality torque wrench for all the fittings per the instructions. Brake fittings are very soft and will brake if you apply to much torque.

Pretty straight foward. The instructions provided were very detailed. Take your time to drain the fluid from your existing system. Remember that brake fluid will kill your paint.

They recommend Dot 4 fluid which works well under street and race applications. You will have to bleed all the air out of the lines at 3 locations. Master cylinder, left and right calipers. This will take some time but make sure all the air is out. Once you feel that you are done, clean up around all the fittings and lines so that there is to moisture present. Then zip tie your brake lever to the throttle as hard as you can get it in order to pressurize the system. Leave it this way for at least 2 hours, but I recommend 3-4 hours. This will ensure you have no leaks.


Results:
A solid 20 perfent more braking with about 25 percent less effort needed to stop in the same distance.

The stock brakes on the zx6r are very very good but if you want increased stopping with less effort then this is the way to go.
