    I didn't change my brake line either, even when I upgraded to a radial M/C.
    The new calipers come with pads and its a bolt-on change.

    The master cylinder is a bolt on swap as well. Either Any '08-up Buell (or EBR), or any 19mm radial M/C for 7/8" bars. Make sure it comes with it's own lever if you go radial.

    oh, ok.
    Stangly enough, it is not the same brake line used for a 2005 XB12S and a 2010 XB12SX for exemple.
    According to this pdf : http://www.ukbeg.com/pash/Buell%2020...ccessories.pdf

    Here is which brake line you need for ZTL2 :

    Brake line
    Model 2008 2009 2010
    XB12S H1531.8AE N/A N/A
    XB12Scg H1531.8AE ZTL-2 is stock ZTL-2 is stock
    XB9SX H1531.8AE H1531.8AE H1531.8AE
    XB12Ss H1531.8AE ZTL-2 is stock ZTL-2 is stock
    XB12X H1531.4AK H1531.4AK H1531.4AK
    XB12XT H1531.2AV H1531.2AV H1531.2AV
    XB12STT H1531.4AN n/a n/a

    xb12stt h1531.4an n/a n/a
    2005 xb12s = ztl1

    2010 xb12sx = ztl2

    Sure, different Buells had different brake lines.

    But you want to upgrade the brakes on the same bike. Brake line length won't change, because its on the same bike.

    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.
