OEM lines include the whole steel line setup from the ABS pump forward, and are a ton of money. Braided stainless isn't cheap either.
The hose parts can be removed from the steel lines at the right side of the steering head. Very difficult if not impossible to change the steel lines without dropping the engine as they run along the inside of the frame. When you go to loosen and separate from the steel lines, have a very good (10mm I think) flare nut wrench, they are in there and not a lot of room to work. Some penetrant ahead of time might be a good idea. DAMHIK.
HEL makes hoses, as do others that have those junction blocks on them, you should go to a local shop to get a quote. At some point, best take the old hoses in so they get the proper lengths and fittings. Galfer makes a kit that goes from front to back but again, you'll be dropping the engine to get the old ones out... no need to replace the steel lines at all.....
