Goodridge steel brake lines

My brake lines arrived from the UK to Colorado, took about 2 1/2 weeks but that was through the holiday season, so it probably would have been faster otherwise, anyway I wanted to share the high quality of the brake lines. They arrive as a kit, I arranged it all on the table to get a good pic, the yellow things at the top were protective covers which I took off the ends. This kit is for the 97-01 K1200RS.

this is the link-

I don't see where they have a kit for the next two generations, but for those of you who have the earlier bike like me, you may be interested. Super nice people, they respond immediately to emails, a real pleasure to deal with.

Cheers, Jack

Had Goodridge lines on my 97 for a year now, big improvement over the spongey rubber lines. Very high quality. ( Stainless fittings are the best. )

In the UK get them from http://www.busters-accessories.co.uk/

Fitted them myself, fairly easy, tricky bit is bleeding the system.

This line kit is great, but for a kit sold specifically for the K1200RS, they should be putting in aluminium washers as per oem, not copper normally for steel to steel. After 18 months install with their copper washers I can start to see the tell-tale signs, particularly on the top brake reservoir (aluminium). I'll be swapping them out on my next service.

clutch line

Vox, just sent you a PM regarding a clutch line made by Goodridge I noticed on the link posted above, any info on that, where it goes etc. Might make a nice addition to round out the hose replacement task. The Goodridge kit is really nice, I can go down to the hardware store and snag some aluminiumninm washers no problem.

Goodridge brake lines

How does the cost compare to the Siegler lines the Pirate sells?

cost

For the kit I got, 5 lines, no clutch line, it was 151 British Pounds which was $310 at the time, for the kit and the shipping from the UK to Colorado. There is apparently a Goodridge clutch line available as well, I noticed it on the Busters website, I am trying to find out if that is the line that goes from the front left handgrip/reservoir back to the clutch master cylinder under the battery. That might be nice, but the diameter would have to be thinner than the brake lines presumably.

Stainless Hoses

BMW uses copper washers at their banjoes, at least in in the USA.
