Braided brake lines

I want to upgrade the brakes a bit more, I am already using sintered brake pads.

Can somebody please provide some links for all the parts that I need to upgrade the front brakes to stainless braided lines?

I usually buy parts in Amazon and revzilla

Thanks

What are your thoughts regarding the sintered pads? Was there a marked improvement?

I seen somewhere that a street owner bought a braided brake line for a sportster and it worked, i'll change mine over when I can also.

I'd also consider upgrading to a Nissin master cylinder for the brakes, but does anyone know it the stock piston is 5/8"?

Yes there is some improvement special near the end of the bite.

I wanted to change to braided brake lines bec. Based on experience it really changes the brake feedback and improves modulation.

i'll try to go by our stealer tomorrow and see if the parts guys (or mechanics) can find a braided brake line that will fit on the street models, if so, i'll share the part number.

HEL makes a great product. Used them on several vehicles in the past. They'll even customize lengths and fitting orientation for you. Good guys to deal with.
