You might be surprised how small the ID of the rubber lines are.

The rubber brake lines have an almost identical liner to that stainless one, the rubber is more of a protection

Most rubber lines are 3/16 id

So are Steel.

I did cut the rubber hoses on my bike when taking them off. I think both have a plastic liner. The rubber lines had a light steel braided shell inside the rubber. Not like the steel braided line, but similar.

Pure Texas, put them on. My wing is 20 years old. I needed to replace all lines anyhow, so I went with steel braided instead of OE.

I did all the brake lines on my 1500 in stainless steel, when I had it, a couple of those are really a challenge. What a difference it made. Loved it.

I had a rear hose blow on a 2000 BMW R1100RT. I was on a trip. Luckily it was only the rear. I limped home. Somehow I ended up with a brand new 2012 R1200R.
This wing is the same vintage as the BMW was, so I replaced them all for piece of mind.

I’ve been using steel braided lines ever since 1979. When m78 started feeling brake fade. Wrapped my fingers around OEM hose and gave handle a good squeeze. Could feel it expand!!! Amazing difference with steel braid. Much better stopping powe.
