Good call.... yeah, clear plastic might be better.They are covered in black plastic to retain a more "retro" look.
If you can safely remove the covers, keep in mind that the raw stainless covers are quite abrasive, so you may want to keep the covers in the places where the hose might rub on anything.
Your brake lines are stainless steel.Anybody have a handle on a kit for GT's?... Also, any other brake mods that you feel help braking performance. Thanks!
Thanks!My new Brembo 4 piston upgrades are suppose to arrive today, so once in place and I can see what bends I need, new Spiegler lines with clear plastic and black ends will be ordered for brakes and clutch. That will finish off the upgrades to brakes, brake lines, reservoirs and clutch slave. Next item will be the nemesis.
Thanks, too! Great looking PS.Your brake lines are stainless steel.
As for other upgrades, switch out your forks or fork bottoms for radial mount calipers, then add 4-piston/4-pad calipers and radial pump master cylinders. While you have the forks off the bike, upgrade the internals to suit your weight and riding style. These changes will transform your bike.
It's been really cold around here too. When I leave the house @ 4:00AM the temps have been as low as 9 degrees and as high as the mid-teens, but I'm still riding a 90 mile round trip most days. Warm n Safe heated jacket liner and gloves, DP heated grips, and a Rev'It Cayanne Pro two-piece riding suit and I'm quite comfortable. The gear really helps extend the riding season....Haven't had the cover off the bike in a while since it is -10 degrees here tonight.
