Ok so i got a black fury, we all know the brake lines are ugly but the rear line is kinda hidden and since my bike is black a little more so, was wondering what i should do for lines.

Ohh BTW im not voting in this but want others input, I know how i kinda feel but also like other peoples opinions on asthetics

I own a matte silver so my line is not that bad on the back IMO. I do want S.S. on the front.:rolleyes:
Your thinking kinda the same way I am, The back only has like 10" of line exposed and sits near the swingarm so for being a black bike, or in your case a black frame, it hides kinda nicely. Im more set on doing atleast the front just because it runs along the fork so the SS braided would blend a little better that way. If it was blue red or Reg. silver i would do both

I was thinking the traditional Braided which just has a clear cover to prevent scuffing paint and such. atleast on the front though, My main thing is trying to conceal them a little

Ohh BTW cost if you do it yourself is around 20 a line so its not a major expense

looked at the ebony 2's not bad, would look better on blacked out controls trees and possibly bars, just to keep a little more black up front. and blacking the shocks would help make them look alot more fitting too

Don't get the Honda one, top at the bars looks good, but the lower 1/3 that shows by the caliper is black rubber.
Yeah im not getting the honda one asper price, I got the tools to do the lines, its just getting the parts which should run about 20 bucks and it will all be SS only spot that wont be silver will be the mount on the tree which is going to be a hose mount SS with a rubber bushing to keep it from tearing into the line. im wondering if some of the people voting stock are thinking retail prices on the lines which is about 60-120 depending on what i would go with

I redid all of my lines including throttle and clutch with the stainless steel braided honda ones. Only complaint I had is the front ones don't go ALL the way to the calliper with the stainless steel braided stuff. For what they all cost I thought that was BS

its availible custom order for what i found but you could probably order parts and DIY. For some reason they try gouging you on cost when custom ordering compared to DIY. Inflation is like they have a NASA engineer making the lines. i forget the mfg just searched ebony 2 brake lines
