You guys really need steel brake lines even if you donít track??

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

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

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 ..

I ended up going with the 2wheeldyno ECU flash on my 2017 Z900, and I have been happy with the service. Turnaround was fast, and I can totally feel a bit more pull at the top end with my full Akrapovic exhaust system. I also love the fact it doesn't engine break as hard when I slowly let-off the throttle, which was one of by biggest gripes with the bike.

Those are all top brands. I've had Galfer (they make brake pads and rotors as well) on my other bike for fifteen years without issue.
I've done some research on each but my sticking point was the banjos. I want stainless banjos, not aluminum. And all I found in stainless banjos were for non ABS bikes.
HEL was going to make me up a set but I would have had to send them my lines as a test set.

And none of them had pics of the lines actually installed on the bike or actual pictures of the lines themselves. One member had pics of his lines installed but those weren't available in the US.

The company will lengthen the lines for just a couple of bucks more.

Thereís a video here: of a guy installing spiegler lines on an R6. Youíll see him rotate the banjo to get the best angle on the lines.

For ease, given that weíre in UK, I was just going to get HEL or goodridge when the time comes for me to do mine. I want to raise the handlebars on mine with the Rizoma bar riser kit, so thought Iíd wait until I can afford the riser kit, new bars, new levers and longer braided lines all at the same time. Not going to be cheap!

Definitely not  & nor do you want it to be , Cheap is as Cheap Does
