Recommendations on SS brake lines and pads?

I was looking for some steel braided brake lines front and back and some brake pads. I dont want pads to extreme that they squeak. Any recommendations? Also I might as well change my break fluid what are you guys using and how much? Will I feel a breaking difference with SS lines?

I use:
Spiegler SS lines
Carbone Lorraine XBK5 pads
Motul RBF600

It's definitely an upgrade, well worth the nominal cost.

Spiegler lines probably look the best and pay the closest attention to detail. However, if you don't care about looks and performance is all you care about then get the cheapest set of name brand lines like the Goodridge clear lines. All lines will perform the same in that they don't flex.

As for fluid motul RBF600.

For pads it depends on what you're using it for. If it's just commuting then go with some ebc's. If you want aggressive street pads then carblone lorrain sbk5's or performance friction .95's would be great. If it's mostly track then the Performance Friction .07's are very hard to beat.

Spiegler lines - although I would say all SS lines are all comparable. Like Corey said the Spieglers look the best IMO and you get color choices for lines and banjoes.

I use ATE Super blue fluid ( as seen in pic )

And just started using Performance Friction pads but have yet to try them on the track.

Vesrah good for pads too.

check out coremoto.com. I run these and they are somewhat "new" to the field, but I LOVE my lines. There is also another forum member that has these and says nothing but good things about them.

I looked at them - the only reason I went with Speigler (and glad I did) is because you can tweak the fitting so that it fits perfectly onto the brake caliper or MC. It comes with a little plastic tool and pipe to adjust them as required.

I have found that even though they come custom made (fittings exactly same as OEM) the don't usually sit exactlly the same way as stock because they are thinner and stiffer and I seem to route tehm a little bit differently.

Prices were about the same.... but since motomummy gave me great service in the past I gave them my business again.

My core motos fit beautifully. They also have more options for color of line, tag, bango and sleeve. The bangos were labeled for top or bottom, front or rear and were set on the line to fit in the grooves on rear caliper. They also kept the logo on the tag facing out perfectly on every line

Here is a link to a full review I did of core motos. I ordered on a Monday and had them at my door on the same Friday custom made.

I also just ordered a set(3) of CoreMoto lines myself as well. I ordered them yesterday and had a tracking# this morning!

I had just gotten back from a 1500 mile trip the day before I installed the lines. Had some nasty weather on the way back
