Braided lines are the best and cheapest improvement. The difference is night and day for me. If I got a new L that is the first mod I would do. Hey Dudes....I need to replace my front rotor and pads...might as well change the line as well. What 'stainless' lines (brandname) should I use? Also what other choices are there for an oversized front rotor for the 650L other than the EBC 320mm....that seems a bit pricey to me:-). Does the kind of brake pad I get make a difference? Sintered or not sintered?
