    is the little yello logo cover on the brake lines a heat shrink sleeve? sure would be cool if it was.

    Its not, but looks cool anyway.

    Got my lines two months ago and to be really honest, it wasn't that much of a difference with my standard lines...

    O well, UGI is UGI...

    I'm pretty sure that they are, but I just left mine loose over the banjo fitting to see how much water they would collect...

    True, not much diff in braking power, but much more flexible, durable (braided steel) and purtier too....
    doubt if I will buy 'em again....

    exophthalmos.

    There's a lot of hype with these lines. They make little to no difference, so now manufacturers are trying to tell people they now dissipate heat.

    Only thing I ever noticed was a more distinct engagement point. Feels less "mushy."
    Not a big change by any stretch. I can't comment on the heat dissipation.

    CC nice one bro theyre just to scare the natives when charging through the bush they look like eyes at night

    What were ya gonna shrink wrap anyways

    JC I agree with Squeak, I run em cause I like em and I know they are bullet proof.

    Where I found the most difference was on my buds Hayes Mags which are pooh, we put Goodies on and they had an imeadiate improvement actually fel nice briefly until I got back on my maggies, but they do improve a bad brake with little or no feel, in the case of the Hayes they had power but nothing else no control feel like the FRs, now my my buddy Spotz has converetd to 07s and hes blown away and they don't have goodies yet

    Now don't go on the rampage about Maggies

    They rule

    So do goodies, sideline back to you CC get em they at the very least are bullet proof in a crash don't kink and will give you .5% extra power and consistent feel

    thanx ta. i was thinkin if they were shrink wrappers, id use one under the taco and the other on the crown. so much for a good idea.

    i have em in hand, a b-day gift from a new pal. got em in blue when the carbons came up empty and install looks pretty easy. i hope they look cool on the bronze anno/black bike known as "ted". that is if i can ever pay for the friggin thing.
