    I think OEM was performance friction.

    all buells from late 90's to end of 2010 model year production left the factory with sintered "semi-metallic" pads front AND rear. the supplier was both Galfer in barcelona, spain and EBC in the UK depending on whom supplied the best bulk pricing at any particular time.

    But you want to upgrade the brakes on the same bike. Brake line length won't change, because its on the same bike.
    Well it actually could need a change (and buell DID change it). Here are two pictures of ZTL1 :



    And a picture of ZTL2


    We can see that it goes a little lower on ZTL1 brake. About half an each lower. And ZTL2 brake line is straight while ztl1 brake line is a little twisted.

    So I agree that both brake lines type might work on both caliper. But they have definitly not the same design.

    Niklos: I have just been saying the brake line that came with your bike will work if you just add a ZTL-2 caliper and 19mm Master cylinder. You don't have to buy a brake line.

    Obviously, buying a new one will work too. I don't see the point of wasting that valuable beer money.
