Stainless Steel Brake Lines
Written by rudyg1937 on 4/11/2007 at 07:41 pm

I did a lot of checking on this for Spiegler when they made their first
set of SS lines using mine as the pattern. Everything looked as if the
lines were interchangeable through all years. I compared handlebars,
fok legs and many other pieces. I forget what the difference in the
part numbers was but they appeared interchangeable among all years.
One thing I like about the Spieglers is that you can rotate the
fittings so there is no twist in the line. I also installed the clutch
line which gave the clutch a much better feel. If you got with Galfers
or Spiegler I recommend it.
I have Russell lines on my VFR and if I actually rode it more I would
take them off and put on the Spieglers because they fit so much
better. Since I bought the PC the VFR has gotten under 400 miles a
year so I find it hard to justify the money.

Hi all, My '89 PC is in PeiCes in the garage. I am replacing the fork seals, and while I am there I will be putting in Progressive Springs and Roller head bearings. I also picked up a master cylinder because the view window on my old o

    I have a question for you all... I have been interested in getting stainless brake lines for my PC for some time now and just bought a set from a place in Ontario CA by the name of G&J Aircraft and Competition (www.gandjaircraft.net)

      A question that I have is what is that rear brake line for? I have never seen a PC with anything but a drum rear brake. ----- Original Message ----- From: ridearoundtheblock<mailto:

          I have a set made for me off PC lines by a company in Crestline, CA. There are actually four lines needed for the PC; three for the front brake and one for the clutch. Dick MacInnes

              Granted the cost/benifit ratio is skewed towards cost I find the braided SS clutch line to give the clutch a better feel. It disengages earlier in the pull probably because the line is not flexing and using part of the travel. The Guzzi came

      Winglet got a set of Spiegler (http://www.spieglerusa.com/) brake lines a few years ago. Considerably more expensive, excellent service, and available in various colors. The red lines with red banjo bolt

      Just so you know - any FAA certified shop that makes aircraft lines (brake, hydraulic, fuel) can whip up a set in about 20 to 30 minutes max if you have the measurements or the original lines in hand. Tim Boan Red Dwarf II To:

    Aloha- I would be quite interested in the SS brake lines for my PC. I installed a pair on a BMW I once had and the improvement was significant. Gary
