I think the patent just expired and Yamaha has started using that more direct routing in the last year or so. You get a shorter cable, so less room to expand, and is is easier to get rid of any air bubble as they don't get trapped at the elbow like on the traditional yamaha cable.

I just replaced my rear brake line with a steel braided line. Go to your Yamaha dealer and get some dot 3 or 4. The rear brake can take either. The front brake needs DOT 4.
I replaced the entire system and after 1 hour of bleeding the air out we decided to take a "turkey baster" and fill it with fluid. Use the baster to push fluid down the plunger of the res it will push out all the air out of your bleeder valve when it is open. Fill the res up, put he cap back on and test. You should be good to go.
It's good to have a buddy help you while you do this. Makes life much easier.
