Braided Lines

Does anyone in here run braided lines for their bike?
I may need to just flush my brake lines, but my last track day I noticed brake fade after my 3rd lap out.
I have been getting faster and faster this year and may need to convert over to braided lines.
The bike also has had 19 track days

The stock lines are braided, they're just in rubber housing. The lines are all panis are more than enough, if you need more performance out for brakes consider:
1- Pads
2- MAster Cylinder
3- Calipers
4- Rotors

In order of biggest difference made and sort of $$
I currently have Brembo billet racing masters with stock calipers and rotors. the masters are a HUGE upgrade. When I do my full track conversion I will be throwing SBS HS pads on and I am considering Brembo GP4-RX calipers and new rotors. Will probably just see how the new pads are and go from there. Of course if you go down the route of rotors/calipers you might as well throw steel braided lines on as well...

Thanks Karl,


I must need new oil, I can feel a difference in breaking pressure as I run laps. By my 4th lap I and squeezing the brakes pretty **** hard.


I have recently replaced the pads, I am not that impressed by them. I will probably be switching them out soon. I felt the OEM pads did a pretty good job. Thanks for the quick tips, I will dive into the thread and do some research.

Just m2c on brake pads:
Racing brake pads are a bit like racing tires which only work as designed when hot.
Consequently, they're usually not the best for a street bike. They'll also wear a lot faster.

I'll add to what @DarR stated - race pads are usually more abrasive also, which means your rotors also wear faster.

I noticed that I get fade later in my sessions, not earlier.

I recall @dougo1199 posting a considerable amount of info about brakes in multiple threads.
