Question Aftermarket brake parts?

Anyone use these brake lines, have any reviews? The only other brands I've found are Galfers....

I have them and they are very popular in Europe together with Galfer and Goodridge. I never had SS lines before on my other bikes so my review is kind of biased and TBH any of the mentioned brands are probably equal in terms of functionality and quality. However, I love them on the CBR, braking power / consistency improved. For me itís a must-do mod, but don't lose too much sleep over which brand...

HEL is a name-brand line. I think their niche is the colors. Brake lines are brake lines (we're talking other than rubber, of course). All it needs to do is transfer fluid pressure from the master cylinder to the calipers. The diameter of the line can affect this, which is only a consideration if you're making your own lines.

Goodridge is the only manufacturer that lists a smaller "race" size which is the -2. Anybody have those?
