Doug, You are getting good advise from the other posts on this. One
comment on the Two Brothers pipe. I am running their pipe but a Honda
VFR muffler. The sound is just right for me. Less noise than the Two
Brothers can. But my comment to you is that the Two Brothers pipe
section that I am using is noticeably poorer quality than either the
stock material, or stainless pipe you can get from JC Whitney.
Basically, I am not impressed with the quality of the Two Brothers
I put Spiegler lines on my RS which has ABS. They made no difference
to the mushy lever feel. Not sure if this is a bleeding issue or not
really. My general feeling is that the ABS plumbing makes for a soft
feel on the lever. I had good power both before and after the line
