I saw this on the BDCW FB page and thought it may be of interest to some here. I am not associated with BDCW, but do have their stuff on my AT and can highly recommend them as a company to work with.

New Product Announcement:

Stainless Steel Brake Line Kit for the Honda Africa Twin 2016+

Braking technology and performance has come a long way in the last few years so we were a bit baffled to see that Honda choose to put archaic rubber brake lines on their premier adventure bike. The same person that choose the stock footpegs probably had some influence on the decision ;)

We recently upgraded our Africa Twin to the Galfer Stainless Steel brake lines and the improvement is significant to say the least. Better feel, better performance, better control and less fading once things really heat up. Plus they are less susceptible to damage on the trail which is another important consideration!

In addition, for 2017 Honda decided to CHOP the length of the front brake line to the lever by about 3 inches, making it impossible to mount handlebar risers on the 2017 models. We have custom ordered the kits we carry to be compatible with handlebar risers up to 2 inches tall.

FITMENT:
Honda Africa Twin CRF1000L (2016+)

COMPATIBILITY:
Suitable with handlebar risers up to 2 inches

Please see our website for more details:

We also have just the top line available for those who purchase our risers and don't want to replace the entire system.

I just saw those brake lines listed on another website as I was completely unnecessarily browsing (are there new farkles I want?) last night. Are stainless brake lines worth it?
