Spiegler ? Never heard of them , I have a checklist for my bike & had HEL Lines shortlisted , I've recently found out about Galfer ? I'm gonna have to research this further.

I'm sure there all fine for my usage ; however I will be trekking through europe for extended periods & would like to spend my money wisely!

HEL
Galfer
Speigler

Anyone know any blatant differences

I have bought a kit from Spiegler for my Z900 abs, I can post pics when I pick the bike up if you want to see .. my reserch is that Spiegler is the top of the line when it comes to break lines ..

the import costs for speigler is too much considering HEL is also of high quality ; Think I'll go with HEL

Need ??
Probably no more then we need modified exhausts but they do help with brake lever feel and help control fade.

Dont know about your feelings on the subject, but as far as Im concerned you can never have too much stopping power when riding on the roads with all the fcking lunatics driving their cages while distracted by kids/radio/laptops/food/drink/mobile phones etc. Anything that improves my chances of stopping that split second sooner if some twat pulls out in front of me is money well spent I think.

Im saying that because normal brakes lines like we have can be a problem on the track because of the heavy using. Problem like youll loose the brake feeling and youll go straight in the curve. (Sorry I cant explain it in English)

But on the road where you dont use that much the brakes. I mean are you going to save half a meter with those compare with oem?

Awesome ! think everyone is waiting to see how it works. I was advised to bypass the abs but I'm reluctant as it's the only aid the bike has..lol
