Bah..I wouldn't have bought them if I had known they make no difference.

The OEM feels really squishy, and I can't seem to lock the front tire no matter how hard I squeeze, has fresh fluid in it too. :dontknow:

Edit: I ordered some earlier, didn't recieve them yet.

Then you probably have a problem in the caliper, master cylinder or pad/discs.

Even with 4 year old fluid and stock lines I could lock her up. I think it had a lot to do with bottoming out the suspension though. It is easier to lock em with the new lines and fluid though(should say was, now that fluid has aged)

Don't get me wrong, the SS lines are great and worth it. I have a consistent feel across the whole pull of the lever, and it feels great. I can't say that it makes me brake harder, but I have a better feel to the lever, and would still recommend them...

did you guys change out the stock calipers too? or just plug and play straight into stock? for the Galfer SS Brake Lines

Quick question

If I'm planning an upgrade to SS for the rears, would I need to install a new replacement switch for the rear brakes?

depends on the rearset. if rearset has provisions for a brake switch mount and lever has provisions for the spring, then it will still work.
otherwise the vortex? pressure switch banjo bolt works fine
