Braided line would be easier cheaper and more effective.

A bit over kill for the speeds the 250 sustains but it does have 'cool factor' written all over it.
Nicely done.
I'd be worried about too much initial bite in a panic situation but that's just me.


Umm how is braided line alone going to be as effective as a four piston caliper? Oh wait its not
A steel braided line won't swell. Braking power stays consistent. Less fade. Less sponge. More linear.
It would be a good thing to do with the Brembo calipers as well the stock calipers and it's on my "To do" list for next spring.

And nice install btw op
Feel..... all the power in the world is no good without feedback and feel.

Its the only criticism of the cbr's brakes.

Spongy lines give spongy feel.

yes, and brembo hs a function factor written all over it.

Nice job, was an adapter required at the caliper mount?

Something I have done to every bike I have owned that had hydraulic disc brakes. Always an improvement for not too much money, especially if you make your own. Spiegler make a stock replacement for $60 (front).

opooru, any chance of getting a ride report?
I'm curious as to whether that beautiful Brembo meshes well with the bike or not.
Since I haven't seen more posts from ya I'm assuming it's working good.

A set of braided lines are on my winter to do list. I am very curious about a ride report with the new calipers.
