Lol, I have a one piece suit, shoei RF1200, astars gauntlet gloves, and a nice pair of track boots.
But yes, I have bled my brakes very well, I was a mechanic for a couple years, I am quite sure I did the job properly, the brakes are not malfunctioning, and there is no *significant* air in the system. Perhaps some micro bubbles, which yes, make a difference, but basically none. I have ridden higher performance bikes, and I know what brake levers are supposed to feel like too. All I am saying is I just experience the brake lines expanding when I am really getting on it. The literal braking power is quite good, if I use all my might, I could lock the front wheel, but I am looking for a more refined feel on the lever.
Rogue, I am glad you gave me some feedback on the Spiegler lines, that was what I was looking for, or a recommendation on another good brand/model. Absolutely, I am 100% in for not cheaping out here, I just needed that input from other people to see what they thought about them. I will look into them real soon.
Kenny, no i haven't tried a vacuum bleed. I can do a completely proper standard brake bleed, flush, ect. and I am very confident I have no significant air bubbles, but if the vacuum bleed can get out micro bubbles or of the like, that could be really good. What was involved in doing a vacuum bleed? Good idea.
Edit: no warped rotors, minor circumferential marks, great condition brake pads with tons of life left on front and back. No leaks anywhere either.
Any more input guys? I am not necessarily looking to improve the braking power, just the feel, and I think SS lines are the way to get what I am looking for. Thanks again
