  • need help getting extended rear brake line

    hello folks,

    im having some trouble sourcing a lengthened stainless brake line for my current project. i spoke with goodridge and they asked me to go through their distributor barnett. spoke to barnett and ask me to go through a barnett dealer. called the local stealer and he called barnett who called goodridge for a quote and they said they dont make a line for the TLS. thing is i have one still in the box at home... stock length rear line.

    does anybody know this part number?
    does anybody have a 2nd source i can try for a custom line?

    See if your dealer has a hookup with K&L Supply. K&L sells Galfer stainless line in bulk, as well as the correct style banjo fittings in stainless or anodized aluminum.
    I made a set for my old bike this way, and my cost was only $50.00 or so for a complete dual line kit for the front. Not sure how much line you have to buy, but it may be worth looking into.

      Find a bike that has a really long stock swingarm and get the brake line for that model. VFR's have long brake lines I believe.

            Perhaps Deering Enterprises, which is directly across from the Long Beach Yamaha on Cherry will do a custom job for you.
