Hi all, over the winter having a bit of a strip down of the mille, been wanting to sort out the brake lines for some time, although the original's are braided they are original from 2000 !!! any recommendations on brands or are they all a much of a muchness ? 

also if I where to upgrade to later radial calipers I'm assuming the banjo angle will fit both styles ?

Pretty sure early 98-00 brake lines fit the radial calipers ...01-02 do not

So for the radial you fitting gen2 forks or rsv4 /tuono v4 forks ?

Always wondered if it was worth getting new lines, as like you said the original are braided anyway.

Another for Venhill here. Replaced mine because the originals zinc coating had corroded.
I went down the self build route; ordered end fittings and hose lengths then put it together my self.
I much prefer these end fittings to the fully swaged ones. Venhills domed banjo bolts also look much nicer than the hex heads.

I thought due to the age of the brake lines (17 years old) they may have degraded over the years !!
