Brake line recommendation

Chances are the braided piece came with your bars. The ZX11 actually has 
much better brakes than the GPZ with 4 piston calipers (as opposed to 2) and 
larger diameter rotors. Start with some good pads (the EBC HH pads work 
well) and bleed them. If that doesn't work, change out the other 2 brake 
lines to braided as well.
