has anyone weighed the difference between stock and stainless braided hoses?

I'm looking at Marta SLs and wondering if they can be made any lighter....

Not sure on the exact differences - but the braided hoses are certainly heaiver then the stock 'plastic' ones. Would only be a few grams diffference, but if your only changing them to save weight, it would have a negative effect.

I only put a braided in the front (in the rear is really of no use), the difference in weight was about 12 grams. For the SL all you can do is to use titanium for the rotor and caliper bolts, and aluminum for the levers. You could also get ligther rotors, but the Maguras are already some of the lightest ...
