I replaced both my brake lines and the clutch line with stainless steel gafer lines and new banjo bolts and crush washers. Will not have any leaks from those.
Did you run the stainless steel line all the way to the shifter? or did you use the pre existing metal section ?

My bike is still disassembled from painting everything. I will start reassembly in the next week or 2. I still have to finish wet sanding and polishing the fenders and paint the tank and side boxes.

Not yet. I do know that it is the same length as the OEM line because I have them next to each other. I can snap a picture of the 2 lines together when I get home tonight.

thats pretty cool. The fork seals i ordered online from all balls. But with the covid thing it will take forever to get here.
I realize my clutch master cylinder hose is leaking too.
I haven't been impressed with the 'All Balls fork seals. Have replaced them twice in my '83 in the last 3 years and the puddle under my front wheel now says I have to do them again. Fork surfaces aren't pitted or rusty at all and were spotlessly clean when I assembled them. I'm going to see if my local dealer can come up with some OE seals this time.

Sorry work got busy. Here is a picture of the clutch galfer line. You can see that they are the same length. But the Galfer line is one line all the way it dose not change from rubber to steel, so no weak points.

Why is your back seat so damn tall?!? Damn. Who ever had that bike before you added to that thing. It should not be that tall. It makes it look silly.

yeah not intot hat big sissy back rest thing. I thinki thats what they call it. I want to remove it, but i need to figure out how to do it. It's very old school. The only good use of it is to hold a bag for touring. Thanks for the brake image. I ordered a brake line and hopefully will be here tomorrow!

The reason the older seats were set up to be that tall was so that the tiny females that invariably found themselves on the back of your bike would be able to SEE from a higher position. Otherwise many simply were restricted of view by the big guy's shoulders.

Although eventually with time one finds a different use for the tall rear section...

By passing the relay again. My fuel pump relay came in, plugged it in and it seems that it won't work. So going back to the bypass
