Braided Stainless Steel Brake and Clutch lines Group Buy.
Written by cykleman on 5/3/2010 at 10:32 pm

Hi Guys...just got off the phone with G&J...the line kit he has is or the 919
only...said he didn't have a clutch line available. The PC Only has front brake
lines. The rear are the old-fashioned drum brake that has a hard line, not
activated by fluid. I am getting ready to ship, in several days, a complete set
from my PC to G&J. From then on, they'll have the template set for the PC. I
feel that their prices are quite reasonable. Can't wait to ride in confidence
again...I'm with the original lines, and the lever feels mushy, even with a
fluid change. Thanks for the tip.

I have to put it up there with tapered roller bearings in the headstem as far as
improvement to the ride.

this and no one had set anything like this up I figured I would.

way to prime your lines after installation. Using a turkey baster, get a piece
of hose that fits the bleeder and the baster. Use the baster to force fluid up
the line. Start at the furthest caliper then the closest. It took a few
minutes to force the fluid up the lines but way less than it normally takes to
bleed from the top side.
