I got my Goodridge lines through a race-car supplier friend, I am talking with Mr. Gixxer about a group purchase posibility as they cost me just over $80 for the front kit, which is about $20 under retail


Personally I think they are great - especially when combined with some nice new racing fluid (which is also part of my conversation)....

heh heh

I run front Goodridge steel braided - clear covered, and Brembo RCF600-plus fluid and the "feel" is amazing, there is no spongyness, and the fluid will not overheat.

Looks trick too

I was thinking of changing the line that goes frome one caliper to the other on the front. I was going to get a solid stainless line from the local autoparts store. I have seen this on some race bikes. I also saw a solid steel line on the rear!

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">The best setup is goodridge allround. You lose the link between the capilers, you run twin lines from the lever which gives you more fluid, and apparently a better feel.

I am yet to out my rear line on, I am thinking of running a racing setup, with no master cylinder, just a pipe
like a race bike....

Just my 0.2..for SS lines..the Goodridge, or Fastlines are good..Motul RFG 600 fluid works good.
I have a full set of kevlar lines, frt. and rear, and while they work fine, I recomend, as others have..SS lines, with a clear plastic coating..

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">heh heh - I like the idea, but I am not sure I'll do it - I am looking at a wrecked 600 as a track bike - if I get it, then it will certainly have that mod

Goodridge definitely makes some high quality braided lines...go with SS since all the fittings that come with the package are SS as well...I heard if you go with kevlar lines...all the fittings are aluminum...

no master cylinder?? wow....I wonder how the fluid is displaced....
