    Hel braided brake lines

    Hi all,
    Looking at throwing on braided brake lines (hel brand). I remember hearing they were illegal on cars a while back in a different state. Just wondering if anyone here knows if they are legal to put on in wa. If not does anyone have them and get any attention when pulled over. Im looking at gold coloured so they would stand out.
    Are there any other brands of brake lines out there that are quality?
    Thank you

    To be honest it doesn't really matter what type of braided line you throw on your bike, Goodridge, HEL, FrenTubo, Galfer, Core, Venhill.

    Any of them will see an increase in braking performance and an increase in responsiveness and safety.

    But if you get a cop that's a cunt they can still defect you legal or not. As such, go nuts, as it won't make a shred of difference in the perceived eye of the law, and the Judge Dredd wannabe's that are our TEG.

    I've got braided lines on all my bikes, their benefits far outweigh any agro on the side of the road.

    I put braided lines on a bike in the 90's, not legal of course, they were covered with black shrink wrap tube so they didn't stick out like dogs balls. Got away with it and when I re-registered it recently 😉

    Yeah as said they are now ADR approved, I actually had to get braided lines on my 79 F100 quite a few years ago as OEM were no longer made for the vehicle
    Made quite a difference to the feel of the brakes, I've been thinking of putting them on the bike but given the linked brakes on my BB it's a 10 line system and over $500

    Went with Speigler lines on my Z1000 recently (plus a pad upgrade) and wow the difference, they're no Brembo M50's but bugger me the sheer stopping power plus much more feel and control is crazy.

    I could do that as there are kits available but TBH I actually like the DCBS, it doesn't stop me riding hard in the dry and I like the way it works, especially in wet weather

    Must make rolling burnouts a touch tricky though... allegedly.
