rubber.... the new brakes feel great.... real light and responsive... slotted rotors and hawk pads r on the way...

i used 2 big bottles on the troublesome lines... everything seems fine and the abs engages perfectly... ill keep and eye out for leaking fluids or lights but so far so good from what i can see

Want really good braking? Forget the slotted rotors and go with solid ones. The only thing slots are intended to do are to clean glazed pads. As a result, they also prematurely wear out pads by removing un-glazed pad material with each stop. The correct way to solve a glazing problem is to use proper pad friction formulation so cleaning it continuously is not necessary.
