Frustrated!

I have a customer with a '86 GL1200, did a poor boy kit. I know there have been brake line discussions here, cannot find what I'm looking for, He needs a front left caliper brake line, having issues finding the correct fitting that clips under the fairing. Any advice or direction would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

If you or he would like to go Stainless Steel, "Lopeha" is able to sell SS lines at just a tiny bit over cost... more of a hobby with him, than a rip roaring business.

He is a OTR Truck driver, so if you will send a PM to 'Lopeha' he will get back to you asap when he stops for fuel/loading dock/etc...

here is his link:

A simple way around that problem I have found is to have a ss braided line made ( as noted by AZg1800) but constructed long enough to run from the master cylinder directly to the front left caliper effectively eliminating the joint. A nice easy quick job with better braking with the ss line. I have done it several times with no issues
