Thumbs up Brake line review

This is my review of Core Moto stainless steel brake lines and it goes as follows: my old brake lines on my 2009 KLR were getting pretty squishy and just were not preforming like they could. I decided to take the plunge and invest in stainless steel. So after browsing eBay and a couple of forums I discovered Core Moto. They have an incredibly huge color selection from the lines and cover for the lines all the way to the logo and banjo bolts, plus for those of us with bar risers or different bars they offer extended brake lines with several different additions marked in inches. To ensure I had plenty of room no matter how I ran my bars I got the 2+ stock size or 2inches added to stock size kit. The color perfectly matched my KLR and the performance of the rear and front lines is beyond what I could have imagined. 15/10 to Core Moto and their brake lines! I would reccomend them every time.
*note: upon original posting I couldn't find my good pictures of the lines on the bike. I will add them once I find them*

I completely rebuilt the brakes, replaced the calipers, and put on new rotors ( all of those being OEM parts and replaced with stock parts ) before i did the lines, while it helped a little the stock lines were still very squishy and slow to respond. that's when i decided to go to the stainless steel, the lines included spacers to slip into the holders that run on the bike and everything needed to properly keep everything in place, stainless steel banjo bolts and copper crush washers with the kit. going to an over sized rotor after i finish the engine rebuild otherwise everything else is stock to the bike as far as brakes go. got to ride around with the lines for about 850 miles before i started this engine rebuild and was very very pleased with the entire setup. install was also very easy went on just like a brake line should go used all the stock clips on the bike and the line fit just like the stock line did. didn't have to do anything silly to get the lines on.
