Are you one of those lucky people with a 2017 Suzuki GSX-R? It’s a great bike, although some reviews mention the brakes have a bit less initial bite. Despite the top-shelf Brembo calipers and rotors. So if you want to improve things even more, check out the Venhill Race Brake Lines for the Suzuki GSX-R1000 L7.
The benefits include helping to distribute pressure evenly to each brake caliper, and reduce the chance of your brake fluid overheating. And it also helps to simplify the cable layout and potentially losing brake pressure in ‘T pieces’. Which is definitely useful for racing, track days, and potentially on the road as well. Which is why the Venhill braided brake hoses are built to exceed American DOT and German TUV requirements. And are also pressure tested to 1500psi.
The Venhill race set-up kit includes two braided steel hydraulic lines. They go directly from the handlebar master cylinder to your calipers. And feature a DuPont Teflon core to resist heat, softening, expansion and losing shape. The liner is made with a consistent internal diameter and smooth bore, to allow fluid through more efficiently and increase the braking force.
And marine grade stainless steel braid is then wrapped around to prevent expansion or damage. Before then being covered by a protective PVC sleeve.
Which is reassuring when you could be braking from 180mph+.
Venhill Race Brake Lines for the Suzuki GSX-R1000 L7
The Venhill race set-up kit for the GSX-R1000 includes the two hydraulic lines, fittings, bolts, connectors and washers. The banjos and bolts can be either polished stainless or chrome-plated steel, depending on your preference. And you can also choose between a clear or black PVC sleeve, so you can show off your steel brake lines or keep them more subtle.
The Venhill Suzuki GSX-R1000 L7 brake line kit will cost you £49.73 with the chrome fittings. Or £76.62 with the stainless option. And if you have an older Suzuki, there are still kits available for the GSX-R models from 2012-on.
