Stainless Steel Brake Lines
Written by unlikelylogi... on 5/12/2009 at 02:04 pm

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 bolts are a nice accent on a '97
PC. A convenient feature of the Spiegler lines is that you can rotate the
fittings so as to minimize any twist in the lines when they are installed.

Installation of aftermarket brake lines may involve a little creativity. In
order to plump out the thinner lines, and offer some additional protection at
strategic points, I added some heatshrink tubing from McMaster Carr. The tubing
I used (P/N 7270K21) has several appropriate qualities:

- 3 to 1 shrink ratio allows it to fit over the connectors and still shrink
tight to the line. (0.75" to 0.22" inside diameter.)
- Adhesive lining keeps it from sliding around after shrinking.
- Red.
- Available in a 9 inch length, $3.30.

If you'd like to borrow the old stock lines, brake and clutch, for G&J to use as
templates, please drop me a message offline.

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 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 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

      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
