    Ordered Spiegler Stainless braided Brake Lines

    Shipped today but I'll wait until it's time to change brake fluid before installing. Maybe this winter. I would have waited to order but I learned sometimes the product is no longer available once I need it. I was hoping to find a set of Speed Bleeders too but their website doesn't show them for the NC700X. I emailed them to ask because there's a wide range of metric sizes & I'd think some may work. I don't know the thread pitch & size of the stock screws.

    Are you having issues with the original brake lines? Or do you just prefer braided lines?

    I would venture a guess that the bleeder screw thread size on the caliper is pretty much the same on all Honda bikes. The last two or three Hondas I've owned appeared to use the exact same bleeder screw. If you go to a web based site, such as CheapCycleParts.com, you can do comparisons and since the bleeder screw is considered a piece of hardware in Hondaworld, it will have a number similar to a bolt or nut. That may be a way for you to order speed bleeders from another model that will fit your NC700X.

    The other "normal parts have" 3-digits/letters in the middle of the P/N sequence that is the Model Code from when the bike was first designed, such as MB0, MN5, etc.

    Stock brake lines are fine. I'll keep this bike until I'm too old to ride which may be another 10-15 years & by then I'd replace the lines anyway. I thought I'd make the most of that single front disc until then. Update: They said the Speed Bleeder part is: SB8125L for front & rear.

    I have some on the way also, but mine will go onto 3 pot front calipers. Will see how big the difference is.

    Although I've never made the swap to braided lines on any of my bikes, I'd guess that not much difference could be felt when the bike and its brake hoses are fairly new.

    $129.95 for both front & rear plus $13.50 for shipping. A little more than OEM price but should last longer. Comes in different colors for extra $$ but I got standard clear cover over silver. Bikebandit has OEM front & rear at $41.95 & $37.95. I got mine direct from Spiegler but Revzilla has the same price & has a video + reviews so I'll use that link: Spiegler Front And Rear Brake Line Kit Honda NC700X 2012-2016 - RevZilla
