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 0:)

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...

here is a good thread to read through, Jarel from Ducati Omaha (big track guy) is where I am pulling info from above essentially.

Brake upgrade. - Ducati Forum
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 recall @dougo1199 posting a considerable amount of info about brakes in multiple threads.
