Stainless steel lines are a 'required' farkle on XS1100 projects, much like a Madstad bracket is on a Strom. Riders who have installed them report improved brake response, stronger lockup, and shorter stopping distances. Granted, on these bikes you're replacing a 27-year-old rubber brake line, but stainless steel-clad lines *do* flex less than straight rubber. I don't have a source handy, but searching XS11.com should come up with some vendors.
Guess I should have been wearing pants...
