Nice, Spiegler SS lines are awesome. They have such a cool design with the rotatable banjo, that they are pretty much the best to install without kinks. Not only that, the color options are endless!!!Taking my 09 to SPIEGLER PERFORMANCE tomorrow they are going to use my bike to make a kit for SS brake lines,and I get a killer deal on them !!!!
I was looking at the mounting of our brakes. The FZ-09 sure appears to have a radially mounted caliber. The caliper bolts go through the top of the caliper and clamp in the direction towards the the axle (the rotational center of the wheel), putting the strain on the caliper bolts in the direction of tension vs sheer. If you research radial caliper mounting, you will see that it matches what is used on the FZ-09. By comparison, my dad has a 08 FZ-01 and it is not radial mounted; its calipers are bolted through the side of the caliper parallel to the axle. My 05 R1 is radial mounted (with a 4 pot monoblock caliper).Anyone know of an existing Yamaha application that would work for SS brake lines?
FZ 8 does not have radial mount brakes but it may not matter.
