aftermarket stainless steel brake lines

2007 WABS and getting ready to do 7500 mile service. I am looking for opinions & recommendations on aftermarket steel brake hoses v. OEM?

Thanks,
Mike

I put a set of Gaffer SS lines on another bike mostly because they were a pain in the rear to change and the lines needed to be replaced. I don't think it is difficult on 'Stroms so I personally would not bother. I never noticed much difference with them. I suspect you have to really be hard braking to notice it.

I put Galfer lines and pads on the front of my Strom a couple of weeks ago.
Much nicer feel in the brakes but I wouldn't say that they stop any quicker.
