British brake line specialist Venhill has introduced a race set-up kit for the sixth generation Suzuki GSX-R1000; the new L7.

The kit consists of two braided steel hydraulic lines, running directly from the master cylinder on the handlebars to each of the Suzuki’s Brembo radial-mount monobloc front brake calipers, helping to distribute pressure evenly to each caliper and reduce overheating of fluid. This set-up also helps eliminate the need for complex cable layouts and ‘T pieces’, where loss of pressure can occur.

All Venhill braided brake hoses are built to exceed American DOT and German TUV requirements, and, for further peace of mind, every hose that leaves their UK factory is pressure tested to 1500psi.

Each Venhill brake line features a DuPont® Teflon® core, which is resistant to heat, softening, expansion and loss of shape. The liner is also constructed with a consistent internal diameter and a smooth bore, to offer more efficient fluid flow to the calipers, and increased braking force. Marine grade stainless steel braid is wrapped around the core, to prevent further pressure expansion and damage and this, in turn, is covered with a protective PVC sleeve.

Venhill brake line kits include the fittings, bolts, connectors and washers required; banjos and bolts are offered in polished stainless or high quality, chrome-plated steel for a quality, durable finish.

Produced with clear or black PVC sleeves, a range of other colours are available on request. The GSX-R1000 L7 brake line kits retail at £49.73 with chrome fittings and £76.62 in stainless, including VAT. Product code SUZ-10022F. Race line kits for models from 2012 onward are also available.
