Just another bump to say the lines fit and work great, no drama.

I have three sets now, one for each bike: '79SF, '80G, and '82J.

Here's another option...was mentioned way back in the thread, but the site moved and I found em again. This looks like one incredible deal

A deal for what? Standard or Special. The fact that it's not specified will have me running to Chacal. His product is proven and he supports our fall rally. All I need to know.

Do you have a current link for these lines? The link in the first post cannot be found so I searched and searched but couldn't find it. I suspect it was buried on a long page listing many many brake parts/info, but I just couldn't find anything specific about stainless steel brake lines for an xs1100.

Here's the link to the brakes lines in his catalog:

http://www.xj4ever.com/catalog/j-6-lines.html

The rubber lines and stainless lines aren't listed together, so you will need to search or scroll a bit past the rubber lines to find them.

I'm installing a kit now, for a Special. It looks good, so far. I'll report when it's done.

Good to hear Marty. Now I will know if Chacal has kept up his quality.

He's not far from me. He's a pleasure to work with as has quite a few parts for our bikes.

Three front brake lines on the Special. The fit is perfect.

Thank you, XJ4Ever!

XS11 Folks,
I think I posted on this thread before but I'll be the guy to BUMP it again.
I strongly recommend XJ4Ever lines for fit & quality.

Recently, I got myself involved in a back-n-forth debate with a "Dummy" on Fakebook (aka Facebook). The individual claimed there's no issue using OEM brake lines (i.e. 37 +/- years old) and I was just trying to scare people that they needed to replace them.

Personally, this is basically the very first repair I perform on my restoration/repair projects. To me, #1 priority is the bike must STOP and do it well. I've got lines on my bike from various suppliers: Russell, Galfer, and XJ4Ever/Len. NONE of the others came with detailed instructions like XJ4Ever, NONE of the others were a perfect fit like XJ4Ever, and none of those other suppliers was no readily available to answer a question.

No one will EVER convince me, especially a "Dummy" on Fakebook, that 37 year old brake lines are in any way safe to use. Sorry, I don't care if the bike has 3 miles on it. Change the darn lines!

I just installed a new set of Len's lines on my SECA restoration project and they, just like those for the XS11, were a perfect fit and function.

The life you save will be yours!

KURT
