Default Core Lines

Hi All!
Looking to replace my line with SS ones. Has anyone heard of the brand Core? Good? Bad? Here's a link. I found them on Ebay.
Yamaha RoadStar Warrior 02 09 Stainless Steel Braided Custom Rear Brake Line Kit | eBay

Thanks!

I have not seen anyone here buy these. I wonder if they also make cables to match.

I G searched Core Moto Lines and got some feedback. This one is a little scary.

IMO buying those would be like buying a new $30 helmet to wear on your head.

Stick with the well known branded parts ......

I took a couple minutes and read the entire thread and it turns out the person claiming the troubles was very likely a nut job. If I were to buy lines today and wanted color I would seriously consider Core even tho this is the first I remember hearing anything about them.

One big reason is the way the owner-operator of Core handled the attack in and after Post #20 and also other members of that forum who stood by Core. All of those people's comments have the ring of truth while that member who went on a rampage did not have the ring of truth. The one unfortunate thing is the member who said he would post after installing his Core lines reported on-receipt and inspection but not after installation. But others over there did. Anyway I'm glad the URL got posted and I'm glad I read all four pages for a better idea of who Core is.

Added: if anyone is a member of that forum maybe you could ask lobsterhound about Core lines, his profile page is http://www.r1-forum.com/forums/member.php?u=122385 it would be cool to know the outcome.
