Concise answer:
spiegler

Reason: I like the germans...

The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help.'

The only time a leader should use the word "I" is in the sentence "I have to shit"

Stainless lines?

I suppose I'll give a concise answer myself. Core moto lines.

Reason: They are local to me and I have had them before. And customer service is awesome. Another brand to check out is venhill.

Just to mix it up I'll give another concise answer:
Galfer

Because the SBK lines are freakin awesome

Not going to lie, I've been looking at Galfer, Spiegler and Core....only recently have I started looking into HEL. I haven't tracked my bike, but I am thinking about taking a course in spring at Road America which isn't very far from my house. At about 11k on my zx6r do you guys think it would be a good idea to get new pads with the new lines?

Depends on how much material you have left. I mean are pads are hh rated stock so if you have meat left I would wait till you need them just my .02 cents. But get good brake fluid at bleed them till it comes out clean then a little more. And I have core moto lines and love them.

Dumb question but when you go on their site and pick out what you want for their custom lines, as far as the length everything should be stock unless your bike is lowered or stretched right? Mine is stock height and not stretched.

Here a link to what I'm talking about.
