According to Galfer, adding braided steel brake lines is one of the most cost-effective performance improvements a rider can make to their braking system. The company’s complete braided steel brake line kit for the 2012-2013 Yamaha XT 1200 Z Super Ténéré enhances the rally-inspired Super Ténéré’s stopping power and brake feel, while protecting the brake lines from abrasion and debris. 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. The braided steel also provides additional protection for the brake lines. The MSRP for the 2012-2013 Yamaha XT 1200 Z Super Ténéré Complete Brake Line Kit from Galfer USA is $288.
