You might want to look at Spiegler or Hel. they have never faded on us compared to the galfer's. If you want gold banjo's the galfer's are a very light gold compared the competition as well. IMO you pay a little more you get a little better finish.

no, not brake fade, but the color of the line fades. IE red to pink and blue to light blue, etc. Black i haven't seen fade that much though. But if you're looking for gold banjo's then the gold is a very light gold. Picture dipped in urine or brass (might be made of brass actually). Where the competitors gold banjo's are a deep/bright gold like ohlins since they are anodized or powdercoated. I'm talking about the finish of the line. Any SS line will perform the same.

Since they all perform the same that leaves the finish/fitment/price to be discussed. I was just discussion the finish of the lines.

I had Galfer's on my '03 R1 and didn't have any problems with them at all. I'll probably put braided lines on my YZ450F over the winter. Help lighten the bike some, as well as improved braking.

So far I have used Galfer, Spiegler, and Goodridge. No problems with any of em. My 06 has Spiegler front and Galfer Rear. My blue Galfers have not discolored that I can tell, but my bike doesnt sit in the sun for any length of time other than riding.

I ordered my galfers through www.tobefast.com, came through pretty fast too. Galfer has some awesome customer service as well, always good to buy a product that a company is willing to stand behind.
