Brake lines are on, total brake job is done. Rotors, caliper's & pads on all 4, 2 new front brake lines, 1 new back brake line. Pedal is consistent every time. Stops wicked fast. Life is good. :lol:

So, the new brake lines fixed the "pump once to have good brakes" issue ! :rockon:

That's great! Glad you're liking the new brakes Twin. I might need new lines then.

For some reason, I thought it was just the front lines. Guy said there was 1 rear as well, so he put it on. Cool ! Always good to get more than you expected. :rockon:

I don't like saying I told you so, so I will let someone else say it on behalf of me. :)
