    So, in your view it was a waste of time/money except for maybe the look Shortlife?

    i wouldnt say a waste..braided stainless is NEVER a waste..its more durable and will outlast its rubber counterparts and its less likely to fail internaly..j

    ust on the rear of these bikes with the stock MC dont expect it to improve things...mind you after youve gotten a MC id bet money that braided makes a huge difference

    sure i can lock mine up...but no better or worse that i could with the rubber on there

    Thanks for the input Shortlife. I'll have to look at my maintenance book for the bike and see when I last flushed the rear brake fluid, and if it's due, I'll probably go ahead and replace with a new S.S. Galfer line (FK003D256R I believe?) when I do it. Shakey, I can skid the rear, it just takes a bit more pressure and travel than I'd prefer "ideally".

    part# unknown...i hit up a local hyd line shop and had mine made up in mins for about 20 per line

    im with you on the "able" to lock and agree its far too much travel and ZERO real feedback..my xl600r has more feedback ...drum brake

    Sorry, but through this whole thread when you've said you wanted more pressure on the rear brake all I can think of is bolt a block of wood onto the top of your brake pedal.

    Obo, seriously your right. Many times a missed adjusted pedal is the real issue

    Yes, section 10-5 of the user manual explains how to adjust the rear brake pedal position. That may or may not help with the rear brake feel though.

    The key word here is "feel."

    Hey Obo, I lost my service manual (PDF) when my old PC crapped out. I don't remember seeing any adjustments for pedal travel "off hand", and of course the owners manual claims that there's none, as it's "automatic" for lining wear. Have a link, or post I can refer to? (either to re-download the service manual, and/or just the rear brake adjustment section you were referring to?) Thanks friend, if you can.

    Thanks buddy...I just saw, and then marked it in "my favorites" from your other helpful reply in the thread "Buying a ZR7S". BTW, I saw some snow flurries here today, so I sent them in your direction friend...that new snow-blower ready "for action"? LOL
