Quality. Goodridge specs lacking.

Comments about Goodridge Universal DOT Brake Line:
The lines where 7/8" longer then I ordered. Each Goodridge banjo bolt added almost 1" to the length. So the 14" line I ordered resulted in a 16 7/8" installed brake line. The 16" line ordered ended up being 18 7/8" installed.Installation instructions by Goodridge found here (www.goodridge.net/_assets/GoodridgeCat_low.pdf) were helpful. Basically installing the banjo bolts 1st then attaching brake lines. Included torque and testing recommendations. Afer a 2nd test ride, did find seepage on a bolt where I couldn't fit the torque wrench. Just a slight tighting fixed it.Didn't find any "Goodridge" markings on the line as noted in the product description - not a problem. Not sure about a "clear cover" either. They were just plain braided stainless hoses. Product specifications here need exact line lengths by Goodridge. I relied on an earlier reveiw which was helpful, but stated the lengths were as ordered (not in my case).It all went together well (goodridge banjo bolts, goodridge DOT lines, OEM washers) and looks fine.I wish they offered a 13" line - had to order a 14" instead, which is working ok, but the excess on the upper line is evident.The lines attach to the bolts by a threaded connection, which ended up being 1-2mm or so thicker then the OEM line being replaced. This caused a small issue with range of motion for the handlebar. I might switch the bolt from a 20 to 30 degree bend to allow the steering to fully contact the stop - that I'm used to.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Exactly what I needed. Other reviews helped me realize exactly how long a brake line was needed.
Well worth the money!

Originally, I bought a set of pre-made SS braided brake lines for my cafe racer project, a basket case '77 XS750, but I wasn't really satisfied with the pre-fab lines. So, when I bought the rear brake line, I decided to try the Goodrich lines and banjo fittings, and I'm glad I did. In fact, I replaced two of the three pre-fab lines with Goodrich lines and fittings. My brakes required 20 degree bends in the fittings, and of course the pre-fab fittings were bent 180 degrees -- exactly opposite -- of what I needed. Braided SS lines don't twist, so you really need the fittings to line up properly, and this is where the Goodrich lines really shine. The lines have a swivel fitting so you can line up the banjo fittings any way you want (just don't tighten up the swivel fitting before getting it lined up...or, ummm, so I've...uhhh...been told...). When I buy new lines for my V-Strom (soon), they'll be Goodrich.

Works as expected, greatly improving my stopping power. My brake lever does not hit my handle bars under heavy braking anymore.
