a BBK with SS brake lines would go well with a big bore kit :D

seriously someone needs to do the ultimate grom bike build, with all the stuff available now and in the future this bike can become a beast!!

There are a few options for SS lines and there is a rear brembo caliper.

Just gotta find a front that'll fit.

In order I would put exhaust first and ss lines somewhere after.

planning to do any exterior modifications to start or just going straight to performance to start?

on a stock Grom that would be enough IMO, good start to improving brakes but even upgrading the pads might be something to consider
+1 on the SS lines. Switching to those and better pads are a very cost effective way to significantly improve braking.

There are SS lines available. But so far all from thailand. I'm sure you could get someone to make you a set they aren't that complicated.

Instead of bigger brakes you could just get more aggressive brake pads (when they are available)

Galfer makes custom brake lines for not much more than regular lines. I had to get one for my Moriwaki when I installed some apex riser bars and a brembo master.

It takes about three weeks and was a bit of a headache dealing with the desk ladies in customer service. But I have had great service from the warranty dept when a line on my RC51 broke many moons ago.

I hope the line broke when you were going slowly o.0

Rarely use a lot of rear brake on sportbikes anyway. One of the banjo bolts cracked at the bend, I think the line was too short for the bike they said I had it on backward. (I sent a photo before I removed it). My RC51 was 2001 which had a 1 inch shorter swing arm than the following years and the line was tight and made for all years of the RC51. No way in hell it would have worked on the longer swing arms of the newer bikes. Plus the new line they sent me was longer. I think I was either sent the wrong line or a short line(by mistake) the first time.

if it's anything like my nsr, it has front brakes from hell already. not much needed to slow these down. a braided line is always a good idea of course. bigger brakes will probably just be overkill
