HEL Braided Brake Hoses 15-19 models
on: August 07, 2019, 06:08:41 PM
Just had an email from HEL Performance confirming they do braided brake hose kits for the 15+ Crossrunner.

Price quoted £223.99 delivered.

I'm planning on getting a set as mine have done 40k already and I noticed the improvement when I fitted them to my 08 VFR800.
98 VFR800 - 130,000 miles (sold)
08 VFR800 - 76,000 miles (sold)
14 VFR1200 - 20,000 miles
15 VFR800X - 44,000 miles (sold)
18 VFR800X - 9,000 miles

Thanks Skids, that's Good news. 
I had HEL lines on my MT-07 and an old Guzzi. They definitely improve the braking performance (hugely so on the Guzzi), giving more progression and confidence. It can be a biggish job to change them over, especially bleeding the ABS, but should be worth the effort. Looking forward to your feedback on this one.
Who in their right mind would design a vehicle that falls over when it stops?

I've not bought it yet, but if I do, I will let you know.

You can buy Wezmoto set as well, they somehow connected with HEL, but around £60 cheaper than HEL itself.
Had a set fitted at my DL650, they worked just perfect.

I don't doubt you, but I can't find reference to braided brake hoses on Wemoto:027:
