    Galfer does make some good SS brake lines. The listed model for ~$65 should fit all the disc brake TWs.
    So do others.
    Lots of other options in varying lengths, colors, vendors, banjo angles, etc starting at around $13 on Amazon for example.

    Got one on mine along with EBC HH pads. It does improve the power over stock.

    ++++1 on the EBC HH pads and braided SS line!
    Not just on "power" but equally important - "feel".
    Same for shoes, when it's time.

    I suggest you research "threshold braking" and practice it until you are proficient.

    Thanks, Darth, but that is something I have been practicing for about 50 years, just never had a technical term for it

    I instructed my wife on our TW to do just that. When she took her riding test the D.O.T. lady said she had never seen anyone stop a motorcycle so quickly.
