I wouldn't want to get involved in the harder / not harder thing here but SS lines (there are other types but I've only ever used SS) feel "better" ... but then again, that might be down to the fact that the fluids get replaced at the same time!

My bike's just come back from a big service with the fluids changed and the brakes certainly feel a little more responsive.

ONE THING, though ... some SS lines have ally bolts/fittings fitted and from what I have read, this might be a problem ... something to do with chemical reactions between SS and ally (+ brake fluid). Can anybody comment on this? I have certainly seen pictures of bolts that have become corroded and are almost uselsss.

I note that many new bikes now have SS lines fitted as standard, even BMWs ...
