SS Line Install ***PICS***

My buddy and I installed Stainless Steel lines and HH pads on his 05 GSXR 600 today. Went well. Overall....easy job. Just takes a little time. Looks good too...

SS lines are the next mod on the bee...I ordered rear pads from Fastrixx on Saturday...I may just go ahead and order the SS line for the rear and change everything out at once...

According to my buddy...just from our little 10 minute ride...he said the feel and bite of the brakes are night and day from stock.

I rode his bike with the stock brakes...and they bit waaay harder than mine. When he breaks in the pads...I'll take his for a ride with the upgrade. If I still have mine this winter SS is going on her. The stockers on mine get real spongy when you tear up the twisties.

The only problem with SS lines is that they will highlight any imperfections in your rotors.

Looks good, but I have always been a fan of the non-colored...

Not good. I've got a slight warp in the front left.

Yeah when I put them on my 9R I could instantly tell that the front rotors had a slight warp to them..

The rubber lines absorb any small imperfections... but the SS lines are a double edge sword. The same reason you love them is why they do this.

Well F those SS lines then. They aren't going on the 92 I guess. I'm not dropping 6 or 7 bills into brakes on this bike.
