Galfer USA now has steel-braided brake and clutch lines available for the 2014 Ducati 1199 Panigale. Galfer’s brake and clutch lines are engineered to improve feel and performance and are a valuable upgrade to any motorcycle.

The Panigale features the most powerful twin-cylinder production engine on the market, and that kind of acceleration needs brake lines that are up to the task of getting the bike slowed down. Galfer’s steel-braided lines prevent brake fade, meaning that they offer consistency and reliability, every single time the brake lever is engaged. Steel-braided clutch lines ensure that shifting is smooth and consistent, and the steel adds a layer of protection.

Each Galfer brake and clutch line is made in the USA and comes with a lifetime warranty. The kits include new banjo fittings and bolts, and there are 11 brake line color options for those who want to add a some custom style to their motorcycle. DOT kits are available for riders whose local laws require plastic boots at each end of the line.

The pre-positioned banjo fittings make installation easy, and they can be adjusted if necessary. Most kits include labels on the lines to help identify which end goes where: something not found with any other manufacturer.

Rain at Mid-Ohio meant that all of the racing for round five of the AMA Pro Road Racing season was fit in on Sunday, July 20. Galfer USA came away from the day of double-header racing with a win thanks to Apex Racing’s Jason DiSalvo, who won the second Daytona SportBike race.

SuperBike

In the SuperBike class, Chris Fillmore had his best weekend so far. He matched his previous best finish of fifth in race one, then bettered it by crossing the line fourth in race two. Fillmore competes on the No. 11 KTM/HMC KTM RC8R.

GEICO Motorcycle Honda’s Chris Ulrich held steady to earn two top-ten finishes. He was ninth and eighth on the No. 18 Honda CBR1000RR.

Daytona SportBike

Jason DiSalvo was the top Galfer USA rider at Mid-Ohio. After finishing seventh in the first Daytona SportBike race, he came back to win the second race by just 0.638 seconds. The race was shortened by a red flag, but not before DiSalvo got out front on his No. 40 Apex Racing Triumph Daytona 675.

Jake Gagne led much of race one, but he was passed on the last lap, crossing the line an incredibly narrow 0.125 seconds behind the winner. Gagne finished second in race two, also, on board his Galfer-equipped No. 32 Red Bull/RoadRace Factory Yamaha YZF-R6. The double podium put Gagne into the Daytona Sportbike points lead.

Dane Westby had a solid day, finishing fifth and 10th on the No. 00 Yamalube/Westby Racing R6. Bobby Fong also broke into the top five, taking eighth and fifth on the No. 50 Latus Motorsports Triumph Daytona 675. Blake Young, riding the No. 79 GN Gonzales Racing R6, finished ninth and sixth. GEICO Motorcycle Road Racing’s Jake Zemke finished 10th in race one aboard his No. 98 Honda CBR600RR.

DeKeyrel Racing’s Kaleb DeKeyrel finished sixth in race one on his No. 51 Yamaha YZF-R6. He did even better in race two, finishing fourth. Jason Aguilar gave Tuned Racing a ninth and a sixth on his No. 96 R6.

In the 450 class, JGRMX’s Josh Grant was 5th in both of his motos and overall, while Rockstar Energy Racing’s Jason Anderson brought home 3rd in the second 250 moto.

450 Class

Josh Grant had an outstanding day on the No. 33 JGRMX Yamaha YZ450F, finishing 5th in both of his motos. They combined to give him 5th for the day, marking the fourth time he has finished in that spot in only eight races.

Grant’s teammate Justin Brayton finished 10th and 15th on the No. 10 JGRMX Yamaha, collecting 11th overall. Brayton was able to lead the second race for a short time, but he was unable to hang onto the position.

Goerke was 12th and 11th on his No. 44 KTM, but those results combined to put him at 10th for the day.

250 Class

Rockstar Energy Racing’s Jason Anderson had an uncharacteristic finish in the first 250 class moto, finishing just outside the top ten in 11th. He was back to his usual level of performance in moto two, where he rode his No. 17 KTM 250 SX-F to 3rd. It is Anderson’s fifth podium of the season.

450 Class

The JGRMX riders had a good day in the 450 class, collecting four top-ten moto finishes among the three of them. Josh Grant ended the day 6th after collecting a 9th and a 6th on his No. 33 Yamaha YZ450F.

Justin Brayton earned the MotoSport.com Holeshot Award in moto one, but he was unable to stay up front on his No. 10 Yamaha. His finishes of 14th and 9th gave him 11th for the day. Meanwhile, Phil Nicoletti’s 12th and 8th on the No. 38 JGRMX Yamaha gave him 9th overall.

The BTO Sports duo of Andrew Short and Matt Goerke also had a solid day. Short took 7th on the No. 29 KTM 450 SX-F after earning top ten finishes (8th and 7th) in his motos. Goerke was 10th at Budds Creek on the No. 44 machine, with moto finishes of 11th and 10th.

250 Class

Rockstar Energy Racing’s Jason Anderson finished 3rd in the 250 class. His second top-three finish pushed him up a spot in the championship, too, and he now sits at 6th in points. The real milestone, though, was Anderson’s win in moto one, marking his first career moto victory.

Anderson started the race in third on his No. 17 KTM 250 SX-F, but he quickly moved into second and began to battle for first. Once Anderson passed for the lead on lap three, he never relinquished it, despite a late-race challenge from two other riders. Anderson was 7th in the second moto, giving him an overall finish of 3rd.

IndySuperbikes_ShowRoomIndySuperbikes.com was born out of necessity in 2000. Owner Chris Fruits found himself out of a job when his company closed its doors, and he thought he would try turning his passion for motorcycles into a career.

IndySuperbikes.com began as an online parts retailer for sportbike riders, and Chris had to teach himself coding in order to design the website. He did some advertising on sportbike forums, and the site started to take off.

That humble beginning soon led to bigger things. Chris was able to hire a professional developer to redesign the site, the product offerings expanded to cover all of powersports and, last year, a retail location with a service shop opened its doors in Fishers, Indiana.

Chris says that two things have helped IndySuperbikes grow into an e-commerce powerhouse. First, their high volume of sales translates to extremely competitive pricing. And second, a high standard of customer service keeps people coming back for more.

IndySuperbikes_CustomerCounterPart of the customer service focus is quick shipping. Most customers get their order within two days. If the item isn’t in stock at IndySuperbikes, then oftentimes it will be shipped directly from the manufacturer to save time. Quick turnaround equals happy customers.

As a rider himself, Chris has experience as a roadracer, offroad rider and touring enthusiast. It’s the same kind of diversity that customers can find at IndySuperbikes. Check them outonline for your Galfer brake components.

The Lucas Oil Pro Motocross season has reached its halfway point, and the Galfer USA riders are showing that they are just as adept at outdoor motocross competition as they are in Supercross. In the 450 class, JGRMX’s Josh Grant has been a standout, while Rockstar Energy Racing’s Jason Anderson is earning solid results in the 250 class.

450 Class

The Pro Motocross Series made a return to Glen Helen for the opening round of the season, and JGRMX’s Josh Grant started things right by taking the holeshot and leading from start to finish in the first moto. The rider of the No. 33 JGRMX Yamaha YZ450F finished fifth overall for the round.

Grant faltered in round two, finishing 13th for the weekend, but he made up for it by taking fifth at both Thunder Valley and High Point. Grant followed that up with ninth at Blountville and sixth at Redbud, putting him at sixth in points.

BTO Sports KTM rider Andrew Short had a very different start to the season, finishing 23rd and 11th in the first two rounds. Undaunted, Short went on to finish eighth in round three on his No. 29 KTM 450 SX-F. He has only gotten better since then, finishing seventh, fifth and fifth in the past three rounds to move up to seventh in points.

After sitting out the first four rounds due to an injury, Justin Brayton is once again piloting the No. 10 JGRMX Yamaha YZ450F. He made his comeback by finishing fifth at Blountville, following that up with ninth at Redbud.

250 Class

Fresh off of clinching the 250 West title in Supercross, Jason Anderson dove into the Pro Motocross season with the same determination. He began the season with tenth at Glen Helen, riding his No. 17 Rockstar Energy Racing KTM 250 SX-F. He earned sixth in the next two rounds – Hangtown and Thunder Valley – before taking a decisive third at High Point. Anderson’s day there included a second-place finish in moto two.

Anderson had a tough weekend at Blountville, finishing 14th, but he took third and fourth in his motos at RedBud to claim third overall for that round. Anderson is currently seventh in 250 class points.

Moto Concepts rider Kyle Cunningham has been consistent in the first half of the season, with a top finish so far of tenth in round five at Blountville. His best finish in a single moto so far came in round six at RedBud, when he was seventh in moto one.

Galfer USA has released a complete line kit for the 2014 Kawasaki ZX-14R ABS. The kit replaces the stock rubber hoses for the brake and hydraulic clutch systems with high-performance and high-durability braided steel lines. All Galfer line kits are designed and assembled in-house at our production facility in Oxnard, Calif., to exacting specifications to ensure excellent performance and proper fit.

Our braided steel brake lines improve braking performance and feel at the lever by removing the flex that often occurs in OEM rubber lines under pressure, transmitting 100% of the pressure at the lever to the caliper and maximum feedback from the braking system to the rider. This 5-line kit for the Kawasaki extends the same benefits of improved feel and feedback to the hydraulic clutch system by encasing the clutch line in the same braided steel.

In addition to the substantial performance benefits, braided steel lines also dramatically increase braking and clutch system durability by protecting fragile hoses from the elements and abrasion. The steel fibers act as an added layer of flexible armor, shielding the inner hose.

Installation of this ZX-14R ABS kit is easy thanks to the pre-oriented banjo fittings that are turned to the appropriate angle for OEM positioning right out of the box. Both ends of each included line are labeled for clarity, and the included instructions clearly show the proper installation process. Galfer backs all of its line kits with a lifetime warranty.
