So when I measure it should be from bolt center to bolt center,because I have banjos on both end.
sparky on Apr 23, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! Yes that is the correct way you would want to measure the line.
Are the threads fine or course?

BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The goodridge universal brake lines do not specify a thread pitch, They do offer the matching banjo fittings needed to customize the bikes brakeline. Below is a link to the universal line banjo fittings:
How do i correctly measure for these brake lines? If it helps, i am building on a '94 gs500
null on Dec 20, 2010
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question!

The best way to measure your brake line would be from banjo bolt to banjo bolt for an exact measurment.
Hi, Im looking to purcahse this for my 1974 Honda CB550 Model. Does this fit to my motorcycle and I also need the ends, such as the banjo bolts from the master cylinder. What fittings will I require?

null on Oct 25, 2010
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! Unfortunately Goodridge will not offer a model specific set for your machine, since this is the case we would need to know the lengths you require as well as which style of fittings on the end to match you up with a universal set.
Does this line come in 3/8" fittings,40"long
Shoofly on Jan 23, 2010
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! The diameter of the line will be 3/8, you would need to get the end fittings separately.

Sorry about the first question...I need a complete set of brake hoses for my 1990 Polaris trail boss 4x2 250

I don't know how to identify the ends on the factory hoses. The bike had been sitting for about 10 years and I can't get fluid or air through any of the lines. The master cyl seems to be ok.
Cromag68 on Dec 13, 2009
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! With the information your looking for unfortunately this will vary per machine, the manufacturers will not provide this information to us. You would need to check your machines service manual in order to get this information that your looking for.
what they fit

Are these lines the bolt on type, the type with the hole through the end of the line that the bolt goes through?
12APRESS on Nov 18, 2009
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! With the Goodridge Universal DOT Brake Line that would be universal to many machines, if you can let us know the length you need in inches as well as the end fitting type that you need and we can match you up with the proper part numbers.

Great Quality Brake Line
I purchased this stainless brake line to update the system on a custom BMW cafe racer I'm building. I'm extremely pleased with the quality. Fit and finish top shelf and it has improved the feel at the lever considerably.

Braking Performance Upgrade
These are the brake lines I put on all of my bikes. The stiffer wall material, as compared to OEM brake lines, makes for better brake feel and control, and they look fantastic. Even better, the swivel ends guarantee I won't have to wrestle with the brake line while trying to get the banjo fitting to line up with the bolt. I honestly can't think of a single con to this item!

Quality. Goodridge specs lacking.
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.

Excellent fit and finish
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.

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

Good product, but measure carefully 1st
In the Q & A section, at least 2 people recommend using the banjo-center to banjo-center length as your primary measurement. I required about 31" for my front brake, and as there is not a 31" available, I ordered the 32" line. I also ordered a pair of banjo end fittings to finish the assembly. The 32" line that I ordered was actually 32", but when the banjo fittings are fixed on the ends (each one is about an inch long), I ended up with a 34" long brake line, a little long. Rather than exchanging the line, I was able to accommodate the extra length with some judicious hose rerouting. However, if I order another one of these, I will request a brake line 2" shorter than my OEM hose.

Another thing to consider when figuring out the size needed, is that these brake lines have the threaded female fittings on the ends that are about 1.75" long. Add to that a banjo end that's about a 1" long, and you have a rigid line length of around 2.75" at the ends. My rubber factory lines have 1.75" banjo ends clamped on, then you have flexible hose. This could conceivably factor in if your caliper or master cylinder is in tight quarters. Ordering a banjo end with a different bend angle may make things fit, though.

On an upnote, the performance, appearance, and quality of the Goodridge parts are very good. My more recent past streetbikes had double front disc brakes. Now that I've downsized to a GS500E, I've found myself working the single disc front brake REALLY hard at times. The braided brake line gives a more reassuring, firm feel to the brake lever under heavy braking.

Very nice
Very nice item. Kinda hard to install, but I guess brakes aren't an item you want to mess with unless you have to. I should point out that it does NOT come with the banjo fittings required for calipers with bolts. I have an '83 Suzuki GR650X Tempter X; after I got the one with the correct LENGTH (no fault of BikeBandit, I just didn't know how I was supposed to measure it), I noticed a definite increase in the firmness of my front braking from the rubber hose that it had when I bought it.
