One of the final mods I'd like to place on my Fury is possibly the braided lines. They look a whole lot better and I keep hearing the performance is at a higher premium. Is there someone out there who can explain how the performance increases or the actual purpose for the braided lines?

Thanks. :D:D

Thinking they are just talking about the longevity performance of the lines improve... Wouldn't think they are talking of anything else, because after all... they are just cables... Just thinking from a purely physics line though...

Actually the benefit of braided lines, other than looks, is strictly performance. Stock rubber only lines tend to expand under heavy loads/braking situations, meaning that there's some brake fade due to the loss in overall pressure. The braided lines prevent said line expansion, meaning more fluid pressure that clamps your pads to the rotors.

There most always is a noticeable performance gain with braided lines over stockers...and of course they look awesome.

Cheers!

Inside the rubber that you see are cables though, the outside should have no affect on what the cable does on the inside of that cable, unless you are talking about the outside cover strengthening it up so that it is more stiff? Which would make sense... if you think about the minute details, sure... could say that the outside of it, being as it doesn't move as much as rubber as it is hard plastic, that would be the case... is that what you are saying?

Otherwise, it is just the internal components that you have to worry about, as if you think about it... that cable is going to move on either cable regardless, on the inside of those 2 different types of cables, which would essential negate any type of benefit that the braided cables would have or the rubber would have on the outside... It is the cable you have to worry about, not the outside... braided cables would even make it more stiff, which is not necessarily always a good thing...

Yes - I'm indeed speaking of the brake lines and how the rubber hoses gives a kinda loose feel (squishy levers) whereas the upgraded lines are more solid and more powerful.

Galfer Steel Braided Lines
Increasing your braking power and feel is as easy as upgrading to the Galfer stainless steel brake lines. These lines will greatly improve your braking effectiveness because there is almost no expansion under pressure, requiring less force to operate at their maximum. The brake lever feel stays firm (less squishy than rubber hoses) at all times, allowing the rider to use only 2 fingers at the lever while getting extremely efficient brake power. This advantage reduces braking distances and increases efficiency of the calipers.

Galfer brake lines consist of three layers. The inner layer is a PTFE type 62 Teflon. The second layer consists of 16 strands of braided stainless steel. The outer layer is a plastic coating that protects the bike from scratches and keeps unwanted moisture out of the line.

Don't order Honda's braided lines...

Would the Honda braided lines scratch up the paint?
The Honda braided lines are not even all braided. The end of the rear brake line is still rubber. Just my 2 cents, but I would go aftermarket. Also on the subject, I am not sure how much performance improvment I noticed, but they sure look better.

I have all 4 braided lines and I did notice it was a little firmer in the braking dept. Only thing I did not like is the fact the front ones don't go ALL the way to the rotor. The rest do go all the way wherever but not the honda fronts. :(

The Galfer i believe are cheaper cost, and look better, the honda i havent seen closely but know they are black going down the fork leg. Neither one would scratch your paint because they are ment for Bikes so have the plastic casing
