After all these years I want to replace my 83 wing's brake hoses from caliper back to res. Some time ago read thread giving part numbers from napa and others. Anybody have those part numbers?
Thanks, Al

More like $200

It would be prudent to read about the difference in the stainless lines made by the different manufacturers.

Pesonally I am leaning toward the HEL brake and clutch lines, none of them are cheap but we want the best for our bikes don't we?

Just because the lines are more expensive, doesn't make them better. Just a much, much higher markup.

You may find a local shop making them, but HEL and Goodrich are good.

You may also have better luck with sending your old lines into someone and having them duplicated in braided SS lines. That's what I did with Paragon originally.

Paragon won't sell anyone stainless steel brake hoses because VencoWings took over exclusive rights to Honda GL brake hoses. But, if you send them exact dimensions and don't mention that they are for a Gold Wing they will build you a custom set.

Yeah Vic,(howdy by the way:waving:) Venco cranked up the prices a bit when they bought the line. I have went to a local hydraulic shop and they said they could make me some braided SS lines for less than I could buy them online. Worth checking into.

Regards,

Hobie

I can't directly address your area but generally I suspect there is a fabricator in your area to service the commercial industry. I had mine made at San Antonio Brake. They will do them in any materialincluded stainlesscolors and pressure test them to DOT. Just a thoughtabout another possible option. dj
