Stainless brake & clutch Lines
admin Wrote:Could be summer vacation time possibly. Phillip is located close to Tricky's place which is near to Brantford, Ontario.


I do believe he is in the middle of a website update.

And no he is not near me, he is in Nova Scotia..... closer to me than Vic but that's splitting hairs Smile

I emailed Phillip and he is going to sign up to the forum so that members can access him by PM

This will be a great method for contacting him

I recently installed a complete set of lines including the one piece clutch line.

I asked him to put the same amount of grommets on the lines as the old lines prior to adding the banjos. He used the same size as Honda but of course the stainless lines are a lot thinner so he made up the difference with a piece of clear tubing, worked out good.

The clutch line has an adjustable section on one end, one might call it a swivel, it allows for adjustment of the banjo at one end (fixed at the other) I first tried it at the slave end but that seemed to place the cable in a possible wear position on the rubber dust cover over the universal, I switched the cable around to put the final adjustment at the master end, that worked fine.

I find it much simpler to remove the fairing, (4 bolts and some connectors) rather than trying to do it behind the fairing. Maybe I am getting used to taking them off but I can have a fairing off in about half an our now Smile
I remove the airbox and filter also that makes life less complicated too.

I have to agree with removing the fairing and airbox. Makes working on the brake hoses so very much easier, besides, there's nothing very difficult about removing the fairing especially if you have a helping hand.

Has Phillip signed onto these boards yet? I'm getting ready to order the complete SS line set for part of this winters' upgrade project. Along with three new EBC rotors and pad sets.

I also had Phillip send me stainless steel brake lines. They were fairly easy to install (I did not try the plastic tubing for the grommets - still might though). Was pleased with Phillip.
