got my galfer lines. and i think or im pretty sure they're too FCKING long! WTF?!?!?!? the rear line stands out like a sore thumb with a kink sticking out the side of the swing arm. looking all ate up and ****.. and i bled and bled the **** out the system and still weak/mushy braking in the front. the rear brake is pretty weak too. not as strong as stock.. my front lines were also rubbing inside the fairings so i just zip tied them in the middle.

maybe i just need to be more patient and bleed more?
maybe they packed the wrong size lines even though the packaging say its for "07 CBR600r?"
im pretty pissed right now lol **** aint cheap and it aint working right.

I ordered two sets of speed bleeders. One for the front calipers and another for the master cylinder/rear brake. My galfer lines will be here tomorrow can't wait.

You Bleed the MASTER CYLINDER 1st, then you bleed the RIGHT CALIPER 2nd, and the LEFT CALIPER 3rd... then get a feel of your brakes. and redo the process one more pump as recommended. and make sure the cup holding the brake fluid is NOT full to the top, this is due to when the pressure gets hot it expends upwards giving it room to expand and not holding your calipers tight with out you wanting it to...

Great right up, but you left the right line dangling on the side of the front fender?

Installing the lines was a [email protected]#$ for me because I already had the speed bleeders installed and could not get any lever pressure to build up. Finally got them to bleed but it wasn't any better than stock rubber lines. Then I tried the lever zip tie trick for a few days. That didn't help either. Re bled the master and a huge air pocket came up the hose. I immediately felt a difference after the next few lever pulls. Now the brakes feel better...like they should with a ss line upgrade.

the rear seems to have a different size thread than the front, just not sure whta the size is?

I got my bike used with galfer brake lines and had brake issues. The banjo bolt going into the front master cylinder has only 1 hole, but 2 brake lines attach there. I assume this is the wrong bolt and the correct one should have 2 holes?

Yes. You need a double banjo if you have dual lines at the master.

Thanks, replaced with Galfer banjo bolts.
Turns out the biggest problem was the aftermarket levers he put on were pushing slightly on the brake at the master cylinder. I used a dremel to cut down the push rod by about 1/6".
