are you sure? my OEM brake lines are not braided and how would different brake lines affect stopping power. there is no flow, or at least not much, it is just a transfer of pressure from the master cylinder to the caliper

I was told once that the OEM lines are stainless, as are Speiglers, Russells, etc. I didn't check stopping distance or anything, so it could be imagination, but the front brake seemed more responsive/firmer after I put on the Speigler line. Can't explain it, but there it is.

I was going to just get the standard EBC pads but seems no one has them or the HH pads in stock. and the EBC website where it directs you to Oz is rubbish

on another note just to see how they go, ordered a set of front and rear cheapie XYT pads on an ebay dealer for about $30 front and rear postage included to my front door. about to fit them this afternoon
I ended up getting them form a uk ebay trader, however Triumph will sell them over the counter if your wiling to order them in. They don't sell the rear pads in HH sintered.
