    I didn't purchase a kit, per se.

    I have the Touring, and I can say they are responsive if you tell them what you are trying to do. I installed their brake lines as part of a switch to a six-piston Pretech caliper, and chose the lines with a red sheath to go with the bike.

    I have the HEL front kit on my 06 and they are great very pleased with them .

    If you replace your brake pipes make sure you do the "push piston back trick" otherwise they are a nightmare to bleed ;)

    If you push the caliper pistons right back into the caliper , before you bleed it helps to dispel any air in the caliper . The pistons which push the brake pads can be a tad stiff . I wouldn't advise levering them back using a large flat screwdriver between the disc and pad tho , as that would be terribly bad form :whitstling: instead I would remove the caliper , loosen the bleed nipple a tad after first fitting a piece of clear hose and then push the pads back against the pistons . Loosening the nipple will make this much easier , then tighten the nipple , refit the caliper and bleed as normal. Alternatively , squire a vacuum bleed pump . These are cheap as chips on the interweb . Connect the pump to the nipple , loosen the nipple and pump away , after first having removed the reservoir cap of course ! This method is quicker , cleaner and will give you rock hard lever feel . There is nothing quite like a rock hard lever ! ;)

    Best way to get the air out is with cable ties .....pump the lever to get it hard and tie it to the grip with cable ties ....leave it for a couple of hours and repeat process and till the lever is hard without pumping ...2 - 3 goes is all it should take
