Alternative Brake Line Extension
« on: February 25, 2016, 11:06:15 pm »
I need to extend my front brake line, and am looking at the HELIBARS.150-0140 brake line extension.  Although this extension is cost effective, it's not pretty.

Is there anyone out there who offers an extension which doesn't result in a large 90 degree in-line coupling?

Or is the best option just to replace the whole line with a custom length?  If so, who's replacement lines do you recommend?

I welcome all suggestions!

Russell, Spiegler, Galfer, Roarin Toyz, a few to chose from! :great:

I'm going that way soon, plus I want some Pazzo Levers! :-[

I went Galfer SS on the front but didn't have to do the back so I didn't. I'm cheap and you can only look at the front or the back at one time - not both. Save money for other stuff.
