Thanks for the pics. They show exactly what's been done and clears some doubts expressed on this thread.

They look like crap, looks like they were hand bent over a work boot.
I wouldn't be looking to go from old to new, other way round. JMO

Well I for one will convert to the hard pipes if it doesn't require changing the cooler itself. To me it looks much cleaner. I noticed those lines Wed. when I was at the dealer.

I'm with you, but sounds like a lot of folks feel the opposite.

Maybe we can start a braided line for hard line swap system. Winter (around here anyways) is the time to do it ...

I'd send my 4 yo braided linesout, maybe along with some cash, in exchange for some of those new ones if anyone was up for it.

This is the THIRD time Triumph has redesigned the oil lines. Early 2001s use a different oil cooler lines then Mid 2001s thru 2012. The 2013 configuration is simply a cleaner and less expensive assembly. I have always been a firm believer if it's not broken dont fix it. It is refreshing to see the blood line still being improved though.
