HKS has launched a stainless steel brake hose kit for the increasingly popular Suzuki Swift models, including the Sport.
Available now from TDi plc, the HKS brake hoses are designed to overcome the issues commonly found with stock hoses. Most stock brake hoses are manufactured rubber which has a limited shelf life and should be replaced approximately every 4 years. This is because rubber perishes over time due to constant expansion and contraction through the cycle of braking. This can lead to areas becoming brittle, cracking or punctured. Another drawback with using rubber hoses on the braking system of any vehicle is the expansion of the hose, which causes a soft, or longer pedal and subsequent lack of ‘feel.’
HKS Stainless steel braided hose kits allow minimal expansion under force due to their construction from stainless steel braided Teflon hose. This gives a much firmer and more positive pedal feel under heavy braking, making them ideal for uprated cars destined for harder use – particularly on track days.
HKS’s Teflon PTFE inner lining offers significant durability advantages over standard PTFE or nylon inner linings. This is proven through independent tests to outlast competitor hoses by up to 24 time as long!
Many stainless steel brake line kits use stainless steel hoses but are compromised through mild steel or aluminium fittings. These non stainless steel fittings can corrode or rust due to electrolytic corrosion. The only way to avoid this is to use stainless steel fitting with stainless steel hoses. All HKS brake line kits use only stainless steel fittings to ensure maximum performance and durability.
All HKS brake lines kit use swaged or crimped fittings for maximum safety and reliability. The fittings also utilise a dual seat design that will seal with either convex or concave type brake fittings.
HKS has developed two kits that cover the most popular models of the Suzuki Swift up produced from 2004-2010.
