As promised, CoreMoto Full Review, Lots of Pics

As stated in the other thread i ordered coremoto ss lines. In the other thread there was some things said questioning the integrity of coremoto as a company. Here is my experience:

I called to order on a Monday and spoke with a very friendly, knowledgeable person. On the same day I received a receipt via email and that same Friday I received my lines in Maine, made to order shipped from FL. I also found coremoto had the largest selection of colors. Not only the lines, but also the banjos, the tags, the color of logo on the tag, and they also offered a nice sleeve option for people who want no stainless crimp fitting shown. I choose this option which was GREAT, as I wanted all black and white. Silver would have thrown it all off.

The lines arrived in a nice package which was in a box with plenty of packing materials. Along with instructions, and 4 nice coremoto decals the lines also came labeled for fitment.

Installation was a breeze, and I liked the fact that even though they are in a fixed position all the coremoto tags come out facing the way they should once installed. The white really looks sharp in person, pics dont do justice. They lined right up and I had no trouble AT ALL with kinks, or getting them routed correctly. They were the perfect length as well.

Performance: I installed using ebc hh pads in front and carbone lorraine rx in rear along with Motul 600. All from motomummy. The difference in braking was UNREAL. I was used to the stock pads and lines so I actually had to use some caution at first when getting onto them hard. They have much more stopping power now, with ALOT less input. Im not sure about the weight of these lines, but Im not a GP racer anyway. From what Ive seen the difference is so minimal between line brands it hardly matters unless your racing at a top level.

All said I could not be happier with the lines. The fit and finish is A1, and although Im sure other manufactures make excellent lines. I dont see how they could possibly be any better. The price was the best I have seen, and like I said before the options available are the best available. Not to mention the are all made in the USA. That to me is worth something. Hope you enjoy the pictures, and please keep coremoto in mind if looking at lines. As far as Im concerned people would be crazy to spend more, when they offer these at a great price. That means something too, cause believe me, I've never been afraid to spend money

Are those lines really meant to be routed over the top of the fairing stay ?

I routed them exactly the same as the factory lines were routed. Up thru that bracket made for them and right into master. Ill post some close ups tomorrow to give you a.better view. If you think that's wrong then its possible the previous owner routed them differently during a brake job or something. Ill look into it, thanks for heads up

How convenient, I was just about to order a set myself.

Props to their site manager. The website is clean, organized, and very catchy. Hopefully the parts will match the integrity of the site.

I can vouch for these lines as well I have the rear red lines with silver fittings on my 05, I have had them on for over 1200 miles and I have seen no leakage, no discoloration in the lines, and no foul play of any sort. From what I remember from a past thread the owner makes the lines himself, so you are buying directly from the manufacturer. I will try to get some pics up in the morning if I can remember.

So I got my lines. Basically my review Ian. Go buy a set right now. If your jot running core moto lines, your am idiot. That's Alrighty I need to say as to how satisfied I am with these. You will NOT be let down with these lines. I will always buy these when I need lines for another bike. Also lifetime warranty.
