Always felt the front brake operation on my TB front brake was a bit spongy or soft the PO who was a very experiance rider suggested that “Triumph brakes are a bit like that”. However I know that Yamaha specified thier (non-braided lines) should be replaced every 4 years. The brake lines on my bike looked original . Speaking to my local mechanic he confirmed this and as luck would have it he had a braided line in stock for my bike. So we fitted it there and then and it made a huge difference lever a lot harder and braking more responsive. The only regret is that I did not keep the old one to cut open and check out it condition but I recon the sponginess was from the old rubber losing it strength over time. Anyway I have also order a rear line, as I am sure that is original as well. Something to think about anyway.

Good move, we have to remember that things wear out over time, some of me is worn out, its a bitch when that happens.
