Not commonly a problem on the street. Otherwise they last the life of the bike without degradation.

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.

Looked up what the postal service charges to ship a flat rate box to NZ, and it's about 75USD(!), up a bunch from what it used to be, but a flat rate legal envelope is only 34. I can ship 2sets in one I think.

Sounds as though it is legal by NZ requirements then. Had no idea about this, so thanks for pointing that out Gubb.

Dropped by G&J yesterday just to remind them that I do indeed still exist, and got a little surprise ... they now have banjo ends in chromed steel, red, blue, and black. They tried that a while back, but they were anodized aluminum which proved to be prone to fading from red to a very unmanly pink and blue to, well, a powder blue your wife / girlfriend would love on a pair of shoes. Oh, and they were difficult to get and keep sealed.

What a great place to browse through! Tiny, but packed to the rafters with all sorts of surplus stuff. I would have talked to them more, but they were all busy completely plumbing a dune buggy. The whole project took less than 2 hours. Great bunch there, and after dealing with them for over 40 years they still greet me by name whenever I drop by.

It was worth the 1,200 mile flight to visit there again. That, and the jalapeņo cheese bread from Stater Bros. Bought three loaves.

I've been running the Spiegler lines for about a decade now, been selling them almost as long. Shipped 2 sets within the last week alone for the 919 and funny enough one of those went to Canada to a member on this board

Doesn't help me decide if I should get G&J and Spiegler set.

It seems G&J would be a bit cheaper for the set.

From what I've read the quality is the same or no ?

I've never used the G&J so I cannot compare, but anyone that makes aviation parts probably knows what they are doing. That being said I can also tell you that the Spiegler lines are DOT approved and fit/function exactly as one would expect.

I received a set of Spieglers (for a 929 that I don't even have yet) from LDH and crew. Mine are black on black so they should look OEM, which I like on an old bike.

They look really nice. A little bonus with the Spieglersis that you can rotate the fittings if need be.

So how much are we looking at, price wise, for the front and rear Spiegler? Smoke black?

I think I'll go for the Spiegler. Though I'm not sure if I should go for the 2lines alternative or staying with the stock (3 single lines) ?? Any advantages to one vs the other?

2 Lines seems simpler...and less joints where things can go wrong.

6 in one hand, half a dozen in the other... more a matter of personal preference really. The lines work the exact same regardless of the configuration. I personally like the 2 line approach and they are usually a little cheaper too

Awesome thanks. How much would it be for the 2 line set, smoke colour and blue ends?
Here In Vancouver, Canada I can get it for approx 250CAD ~ 197 USD

Installed my brake lines on saturday and the difference is massive. Nice feeling and the rear can lock up easily. I definitely recommend them.

Anybody order from brake lines from G&J for a bike other than a 919? The braided lines on my track bike a FUBAR and I was hoping someone like this could get me sorted out with better fitting lines.

Just ordered front and rear lines. Price was indeed $70 although that doesn't include shipping, not sure where I read it or if I misread entirely but shipping is not included in the prices. Anyhow, excited!

Just got my G&J SS Brake lines in the mail. I got the smoked lines with black fittings. I also added all the additional banjo bolts to the kit (rear master, rear caliper, 2xfront calipers). The banjo bolts seem to be zinc plated. I won't have time to install them for a while, but the lines do look well made.

COST (USD):
He quoted me 85$ for the lines (I did mention I was WT member)
The additional banjo bolts were 14$
Shipping to Montreal, Canada was 15$
Import fees were 40$ (Ughh UPS)
Total: 154$ (=208 CAD)

If i would've known the import fees would be so high, I would have at least considered the Spieglers. That being said, if they work well (and I expect they will), it's still a great value purchase for SS lines.

Ordered a set of black lines from G&J last week, they were delivered one week later (California to Connecticut)
The current price of the set (2x front lines, 1x rear line, 1x double banjo bolt, and all new washers) is ~$77 + shipping.
(Mine were a couple bucks more because I had the fronts made +2 inches longer.)
I'll post some pics after I get them installed this weekend.
