So I am looking to buy front brake steel braided lines. I cant seem to figure out which one to select in order to get both front calipers. When is says 2 does that mean lines for both calipers or am I misunderstanding it? I dunno if goodridge is the best brand to get or if i should just buy two single lines of another brand. Also anyone know all the specs of the stock chain? Heres the link for the brakes.

the lines in your link are for both front lines,goodridge are a good make just make sure you buy a set with stainless fittings not aluminium as its been known to fail in the past!

Does anyone know of a place you can order the line from the front brake reservoir to the hand lever? I'm hoping to get it in a steel braided setup as all the others are and the Arizona sun is baking the rubber ones in about 3 months... It's no fun losing front brakes on the road.

Thats a good question, Iv not seen em anywhere, But that is the weak link in the chain as it now stands.
Id like to replace mine too.

you want "race" line. If that makes sense. I got hel lines. either get those or goodridge. er whatever. get the stainless steel fittings, not aluminum.

Perfect, exactly what I'm looking for; less the steel braid. I'm going to have to order some.
Check out Agg Racing - quality motorcycle parts at affordable prices! he sells Fren Tubo brake lines, they offer stainless steel (type 1,2), kevlar (type3) and carbon fiber (type 4). I run the type 4 carbon fiber and they are by far the best lines I have used I highly recommend those, you will have a hard time finding better. He also sells the tygon by the foot and generally throws in extra.

I added this in the classifieds but thought I should leave this here too.

Just wanted to share that the Fren Tubo brake line group buy is back on, I have a set of the Type 4 carbon fiber lines and they are the best line I have used on the three bikes I have owned.

Here's a link to the group buy thread
Group Buy: Fren Tubo brake lines (multi-forum listing) : Yamaha R6 : R6 Forum

Here's a link to the vendor site.

I'm such a big fan of these lines , I am considering buying another set to have as a spare.
