Just bought 2001 gl1800 with 32,000 miles. Purchased bike to include wife in my trips. I am normally a sportbike guy (GSXS1000) but want to share my excursions with her. Just ordered progressive suspension for front end. Any comments in SS brake lines for wing?

Welcome. That bike is hardly broken in. You'll need to put some miles on it.

Stainless Steel Braided Brake Lines: A.) Are IMHO not needed on a Goldwing and B.) There are a lot of Brake Lines on a Goldwing. I don't know of, nor have I heard of, anyone that has done this.

Welcome and great find on a low mileage 2001. What are you looking to gain with the SS ?

Welcome from Se Idaho!!! Ride safe and keep the shiny side up. :grin2: Progressives on the front are a good idea. Stainless brake lines really aren't needed, however, if you really want to improve your bike, replace the rear shock preload hose with a braided stainless one, replace the rear shock spring with a Progressive one, and service the preload pump. The difference in the ride is awesome.

New brake hoses on a 19 year old bike would be a improvement. Haven’t heard of a stainless kit available over the years

SS brake line replacements were popular on the GL1500 wings. The brakes on the GL1800 were a huge improvement over earlier models.
