Galfer brake lines

Who has the cheapest prices on the Galfer lines for the ZX-10R. Gonna do the fronts only and am considering the Superbike lines though I will probably go with the regular lines with aluminum fittings if I can get them. Input on the Superbike lines, please as well as the pros and cons of the aluminum fitting lines versus their regular stainless steel line.

I think BnNinja has the superbike lines and wasn't impressed. They're actually 3mm thicker lines than the "regular" SS lines. Braking feel wasn't improved enough to justify the cost.

BTW, I have the SS lines & Galfer HH pads. While vastly better than stock, I still get lots of fade at the track. The real solution is the Brembo MC - which is one the way

Older Guy, does it still stop as hard at the end of a track day?

Went with the plain vanilla Gafler lines from Brad at Superbike Supply. At 73 bucks shipped can't really beat the price. Gonna use up the O.E.M. pads before I start looking for replacements.

The Galfer superbike lines are 2.7mm versus the regular SS lines are 3mm. The smaller diameter lines should provide a slight improvement in bite, and because they do not use a banjo bolt there should be a slight improvement in brake feel.

A few people have indicated some issues with leakage with the SBK lines. According to Galfer, the caliper mounting is quite fragile and should only be tightened to their specs (which is lower than the stock banjo mount).

I myself ordered the the SBK lines and have yet to mount them. I'll try to provide some input when I got these installed with my Brembo MC.
