Default Buying aftermarket Brake lines

Hi there,

Hopefully this is the right place for this question. I'm looking to buy SS Braided front brake lines for my CBR600F2 online (I cant find anything locally).

I'm in Canada but am willing to bring them in from the States, any suggestions?

Thanks.

I have Spiegler on 600rr and Galfer on gsxr. They both seem same.

I like the Spiegler. I run them on all my upgrades (going on 4 now).

Excellent, that helps a lot... the bike is currently in the garage, does anyone have the lengths and fittings I would need to order for the 93 CBR600F2?

Just go to spieglerusa.com. They have all the info you need. Spiegler Performance Parts - Motorcycle Brake Line Kits

They have the two lines from the m/c version for your bike. If you don't like that and would prefer the three line kit, you can call them and see if they will do a custom build for you. I did this when I put an '08 1000RR m/c on my '98 900RR with '02 929 front end. I just told him I wanted the Rennsport 3 line kit with fittings for the 08 m/c and 02 calipers. The Rennsport kit is designed for track/race bikes with extra length in the lines to handle the more extreme suspension movement. The kit also makes it so there is only one line going to the m/c, which is what I was looking for.

FYI, I don't usually swap out the rear line. I prefer a bit of feel when I apply the rear brake. Sometimes swapping to a s/s line will turn the rear brake into an on/off switch!

Spegler has a great reputation, but I just want to point out...ss lines are state-of-the-art.
Nobody makes bad ones, there aren't any real failure points. The only real criteria
are cost and color. The cheapest ones that fit your aesthetic are the ones you should buy.
I don't offer this sort of advice on many components, but ss-braided lines DO fall into
this catagory. If I had any doubts about safety issues with that statement, I wouldn't
make it. I do (whole-heartedly) recommend upgrading to them. It's one of the most
cost-effective performance/safety upgrades you can do for your ride.
