    Not sure about the rear on which bikes' will fit. You can try duke 200's length with yours. The length looks similar to the eye.

    You could try the Duke 200's lines.

    Is there noticeable difference between a rubber hose and steel braided one?

    Yes. Steel braided lines do not expand or swell when pressure is applied over time. They are more durable and flexible, provides ample bite and doesn't give a spongy feeling like the rubber ones.

    Also, if you are a track guy, you will definitely like the feel of consistent braking that steel lines provide.

    Yes, Iam using Duke 200 rear brake lines.
    No, they are not the same length. The Duke line is longer. If you have the rear fender may be you can route it through the extra clamps. I don't run a rear fender so I had to route it inside the swing arm cavity. My rear rubber lines had almost swollen twice the regular size hence I got Duke 200 lines from a scrapyard. I am happy with it. Completed almost 25000 KM's on it.

    Life is not easy.

    That would be my major concern as I am desparate to go for it but this is the only thing stopping me. I heard that it is 5 kgs heavier than the V1.0. So, your inputs may play a crucial part in my decision...

    2. Any problem if we take out rear tyre hugger??
    If you don't mind mud splatter on your shoes and pants, then sure you can take the rear tyre hugger off. I do too, but to end up putting it back come rainy season.
    The most important nuts are the ones connecting the man to the machine!
