Universal brake lines
« on: Nov 23, 2012, 01:13:32 PM »
Any one ever used universal brake lines, if so how do you like them? I am going to add some fork extensions soon and I want to keep black lines on the bike. Looks like my best option to keep them in black and get a few extra inches is to go with Goodridge shadow universal lines and fittings.

HEL will make you anything you want. I bought from them for my FZ1. I bought lines and cables for my Raider from Pacific Coast Star.

 :agree: I got my extended cables from Pacific Coast Star, very good lines, very good price and customer service.  I ordered the front brake lines seperately and had them in hand just over a week after placing the order.

I kinda like the idea of universal lines for the front because right now I am just doing the fork extensions so I only need the two bottom lines a bit long. In the future I may do new bars and I can just change out the line from the master cylinder to the tee and not have to replace the whole setup again.

I like using universal lines so that if I have a problem on the road I can easily find replacement parts.  Most big cities have at least one shop that carries goodrich parts.

Capt do you remember what size the hole was for the banjo fitting where the banjo bolts go through?
