Anyone know where I can get a stainless brakeline for the rear? I bought a Goodridge set for the front but can't find one for the rear. I would like a one piece line , no fittings to add, or have a custom one made, Thanks Coot
I started to reply to your comment about the $250 cost as I thought you'd maybe not got the right stuff. Because, when I bought my lines for my '83 they were only $140+shipping this last February.:baffled:
Apparently they have discontinued making them theirselves(I do not know this for fact but check out their website and make your own assumptions) and are marketing the Andirondacks which even when I looked at them from Venco were almost twice as expensive.:stumped:
I feel for you. The stainless lines do improve the feel. Plus, I wasn't happy running around on 21 year old brake lines. They do give out. You might contact www.paragonperformance.com and see if they still have any lines left or are willing to make you some. Otherwise, basically you're stuck.
I hope someone chimes in here and tells me I'm wrong as I'd be glad to be mistaken on this item.
Paragon still makes them, but they signed some sort of deal with Adirondaks or whomever to distribute the lines. A couple of us got our lines from paragon before they sold out the Goldwing lines. Now we have to pay twice as much to give Venco the business.
'80 to '82 are the same, the '83 is unique to itself. The '83 has the front 2 discs split between the front and rear braking system, the '80 to '82 uses both front discs as the front brakes. '80-'82 has 4 rubber brake lines, the '83 only has 3.
I -emailed Russell Performance, and they don't list the '83, and basically told me they were not in the business of making lines, and they were not interested in making lines for a bike that had no call for them. Ohhh well.
There are bound to be places that make auto lines that can make them cheap. As long as they have access to the correct angles banjo fittings.
Thanks for the effort. I already have the new frontstainless brake lines made by goodridge but they don't offer one for the rear. I think there is a place in town that makes lines, just need to call on them. Thanks again.
