OXNARD, Calif. - Adding braided steel brake lines is one of the most cost-effective performance improvements a rider can make to his or her braking system. 

The steel keeps brake hoses from expanding under pressure when the lever is pulled, translating to more positive feel at the lever, and greater clamping force at the caliper. And just because a modern bike mounts ABS, there’s no reason why the upgrade isn’t just as valuable.

Galfer’s latest application brings this performance upgrade to Yamaha’s world-crossing XT1200Z Super Ténéré, starting at $288. These high performance, custom-fitted brake line kits enhance the rally-inspired Super Ténéré’s stopping power and brake feel while protecting the brake lines from abrasion and debris -- a feature especially worth considering on ADV bikes that see a lot of abuse compared to pure street machines.

All Galfer USA complete brake line kits are custom designed and fitted at Galfer’s R&D facility in California. The complete brake system can be further upgraded with Galfer’s brake pads and rotors for the ultimate in braking performance.
