Ordered a set today from Galfer. You have to say they are for a GTR1400. Thats how they have them listed. $254.00 full set with extra 1 ½ inch on front brake and clutch.

Hi,
      Hope you can show some pics when done??? :great:

Changed the clutch line Monday. When I cut the old line so it would be easier to remove there was steel braid under a layer of rubber then two more layers with what looks like rubber being the inner layer. I'll take some pics of it when I gat to the shop latter today.

Since I own 3 bucket trucks, 3 10,000 lb chippers, 4 dump trucks, 3 loaders, 1 wire less remote control stump cutter and a  tree spade that all use hydraulic hoses I have a little knowledge in this area and  we make most of our hoses with our  own crimping tools , I have to tell you hydraulic hoses come in many grades and pressures ,    just because one sees a little steel  does not make it quality, in fact the bucket truck  boom hoses have no steel in them so they don't conduct  electricity .

Like it has been said many change hoses because of changing the handle bars to higher further back style, that was my original reason , but I then put LSL bars on that were lower and did not need the extension , I did not like the up rite riding style , did not feel right, just got into all the hype everyone talks about  risers, risers...

Is there anything wrong with the stock hoses, nah but my SS  do LOOK nicer :beerchug:

I was looking for the 2011 C-14 Galfer Stainless brake lines and could not find them until I saw this post.  It's still true, that you need to select Cruiser and not Street to find the hose kit for the C-14.

My Order:
Multiple Lines KAWASAKI ZG 1400 CONCOURS ABS 2011
  * Line Color:     Clear
  * Fitting Color:  Silver
  * Code:           FK003D937-11-CL-SL
  * Weight:         4 LBS
  * Quantity:       1
  * Price:               $164.10
Silver 2011 C-14. Previous rides: KZ-400, KZ-750, KZ-1000.  Keep the rubber side down.  Ride Fast......Live Slow......

Galfer experts,
Are the Galfer's longer as they come from them or do you have to spec it when you buy?  Did not see an option on their web site for length, just colors.
Thanks!

Uhhh, (embarrassed look) I did an RTFM and read the FAQs on the Galfer site; for longer lines you can:Can you make extended brake and clutch hoses for my bar/riser setup? If you need to add length to our specifications for taller bars and risers, simply give our sales department a call. They can assist you in placing an order over the phone.
If you need to change fittings to accommodate a different master cylinder or calipers, please click HERE to start building your own custom lines.
Customized lines are built to order in 2-3 business days (plus shipping time from our Southern, CA facility).
Thanks all!
