Default Motorcycle brake lines on your car?

Found this on a British Jazz/Fit site

http://clubjazz.org/forum/jazz-gd-20...d-jazz-type-r/

Guy used these "different" motorcycle brake lines to plumb his Jazz after a K-20 swap.

Looked them up and found this site:

Could be the trick to get high performance colored brake lines. Anybody ever use them on your bike?

Default I put some on my Interceptor...

I installed steel braid lines to my 1983 Honda Interceptor. The response was vastly improved. Braking effort was reduced, and the "feel" was greatly increased. Before install, the brake lever would often go all the way down to the handle bar when the brakes got too hot. At which time, I would have to take a break, and park the bike till the brakes cooled off. After installing them, I never had that problem again.
Yeah, colored brake lines could offer that added accent needed to compliment other mods done to the Fit. Besides giving the brake lines color, it also helps prevent scuffing parts that come into contact with it. On my bike, I only used bare steel braid, no PVC colored covering over the lines. When turning lock-to-lock, I had a few contact points. I had to place plastic tubing over the lines at those areas.
