I seen that link on the VFR mailing list but I forgot to save it in my favorites. I was not aware that the front brake lines were seperate from the rest of the LBS system. I might have to get me some steel braided lines after all.
after 10,200 miles on my 2000 VFR I think that it is an excellent bike. I just put on a full erion racing exhaust system and it really woke the bike up but I haven't been able to ride much since then because of the weather.
