Brake Line Suggestions

Been looking at stainless brake lines for the front of the hornet. I found a premade set made by Galfer. Does anyone here have experience with this brand and are they quality? I used to make my own but I dont have any of those tools anymore.

I have been using their custom made lines on a variety of bikes for over 40 years, and quite a few are still in use as much as 20 years later. The best part? Inexpensive without sacrificing quality one bit.

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.

Thats the route I will take. Would always try what forums readers say is decent before trusting a random review. Forum readers hang around (most times lol) but amazon reviewers may never be seen again if you know what I mean.

Just got these in for a customers 919 build with RC51 Forks - He went old school with the clear coating of the braided lines and they turned out fantastic!

LDH. Regarding the 919. Can Spiegler make a three hose setup for the front? similar to the OEM setup. Thanks.

They don't make one currently like that, but if you provided the measurements you want for the single line to the junction and then the junction to the calipers they could easily custom make set. You could also send them the OEM lines and they can use those to create the new set.

Just because I've got some time to spare today here's another custom set we recently had made for an older bike



My old white & purple lines for the 04 1000RR which I actually kept when I sold the bike




Chrome Fitting Spielgers on the ZX10


Custom rear line on the RC51 to fit the underslung Brembo

LDH, it's all so disgustingly clean. I feel very second rate.
The 919 front brake lines are easy.
They are all 425mm from centre banjo nut to junction.
The top master cylinder banjo is 20 degrees left bend. The bottom two banjos are straight 45 degree bends.

FWIW, I bought a set of the C&G brake lines a few years ago. I later upgraded to a radial master cylinder and bigger bore calipers. At that point I bought a set of custom length Speigler lines from LDH. While the C&G lines worked the fit and finish has no comparison to the Spiegler lines. I would glad pay twice as much for Speigler versus C&G. Just my 2 cents.
