  • Kevlar brake lines

    I see many are running the stainless lines. Anyone tried the kevlar lines that LP sells?

      Not sure what kevlar lines LP sells, but I've been using Goodridge kevlar lines for a few months now. They're holding up extremely well.

        Thats the ones. I think I'm going to order the full set; front, rear, and clutch.

          The downside to Kevlar lines versus stainless is that Kevlar does expand more. Both are an improvement over stock, however.

              What is the advantage to kevlar over stainless in this application?

                Personal preference.

                  I can get the full set (front,rear,clutch) in kevlar but can not find the clutch line in stainless. I want the whole set to match. Has anyone found one in ss?

                  Would'nt kevlar be lighter? I know we are only talking a slight amount but ?

                    yep... that's what I did too. All goodridge from parts411. Be careful with the clutch line though. Check out this thread. BTW they screwed up the second time too and instead of 4 bolts they sent only 2 (a finer and a coarser one). They got it right the 3rd time (I just needed one bolt with the coarse thread).

                      I use braided stainless steel front and rear brake and clutch lines from Fastline. I got mine from Starcycle, USA. I love 'em!

                          Good info. I thought kevlar was better than ss lines. Little did I know.
                          Can't someone get a groupbuy on Stainless Steel Brake Lines?
                          I know nothing about bikes.

                              Not according to LP:

                              KEVLAR BRAKE AND CLUTCH LINE KITS
                              Braided Kevlar Teflon hose with trick crimped aluminum ends make these lines the best you can buy. The Kevlar braided hose prevents expansion even more than stainless steel, for a positive feel on the lever. Vinyl coating looks great and protects the lines from abrasion.
