    I received a gift certificate for Christmas and one of the items I'm considering ordering are a set of these brake lines for my cbr f4i. Curious if there's any newer relevant feedback or info on these? *I'll assume the old lines referenced in this thread are long gone.*

    Some forums seem to frown upon bumping old threads while others encourage it over repeat subjects. Not sure on the etiquette here?*

    Having raced a F4i, I can easily say, that better brake lines will help. The brakes are complete and utter shit as stock on these bikes, so anything you can do will help! As far as doing a necro post like this? This forum is dead with the exception of about 30 of us, so really, if any of us get mad over it, it really doesn't matter TBH...forums are dead man.

    Some more than others I guess. I always find the best info and most helpful and interesting people on forums it seems. But then at 44 years of age I'm a bit of a technological dinosaur already it would seem. *I prefer forums myself, and don't mind quiet ones. *Seems to be some quality posters here, knowledgeable and experienced. Why I keep poking in and posting here and there. I search a lot too, a wealth of information is stockpiled here.*

    I appreciate the input on the lines SnoDragon, mine look to be stock. Thinking I may rebuild the master too.

    *I will research those other brands too that you mentioned Bacchus. *

    I've used Galfer, Goodridge, HEL and Spiegler and all work the same. I've dealt with Spiegler for the past 8yrs and find them easy to talk to.
    That that doesn't kill us forces us to live with a busted up bike!!

    yeh i figured that would be the case.. proper workmanship is common with all the top players.

    i went with HEL 'cause my guy works close with them on custom builds. That and they came in YELLOW

    I'm looking at ordering up some core moto brake lines. The price/availability seem decent. *One thing that seems odd is the length(s). They come it would appear in lengths from +1" over stock to +16" over stock. My bike is stock, I don't plan on bar risers or a stretched swing arm anytime soon, so I assume the shortest option of +1" is what I would be after?

    yeh thats a little odd, as long as your banjos all line up properly you should not have a problem.. +1 sounds like it would work..

    on my R1 i went with 'stock' length but split the two calipers with their own dedicated hose...

    even so i can run risers easily, i dont know if this is the case on others

    Unfortunately this caused me to hesitate on ordering. Then our tv blew up, now my work has been curtailed for two weeks. Soooo my personal safety has had to take a backseat for now!

    Yah, try riding around on ones that I'm quite convinced are 18 years old. Reassuring feeling. *I've inspected them closely and they aren't visibly degraded/cracked, so atleast I have that.*
