Stainless lines and more from XJBikes.com

As some of you know I have been working with Len aka Chacal from XJ bikes to make a set of lines available for our XS11's. My part only consisted of starting the ball rolling, clocking and test fitting these lines. I did a seperate set for each of the models. So now we have lines for the Standard. Special and Midnight Specials. Incidentally, I have nothing to do with the pricing or profits from this endeavour.
These lines come in original rubber and Stainless Steel with 4 colors available (Black, Clear, Bright Red and Bright Blue). All were fitted to original bikes with original bars. If you require custom length lines you will have to contact him yourself and see what can be done. There is however a single replacement line for the stock 3 piece rear lines on all models that has been fitted and is ready to go.
There are whole myriad of other parts and pieces available through him as well and the easiest way to say what is all there is to ask you to read though the price list. I will say that it ranges from banjo bolts to Rotors, pads and much more.
These are a quality set of DOT approved lines. When the final test fit lines arrived I could simply drop them into place with no hassles. This started Feb/2012 and finally came into being a week or so ago. It has been a long time in the making and I hope you all enjoy the results.
As for the contact info:

info@xj4ever.com

will get you to Len who will be able to answer all your questions.
The price list with all the available parts and pieces can be found at:

I do hope you take a look and see for yourself what this link may be able to do for you and your ride.

It has been posted here at TC's suggestion. It is also posted in Links and in the Members lounge. Every sixty days the post needs to be commented on or members have to switch the options to show older topics as it will not show up without a search. Thus the bumps.

Hi,

I searched google nothing. Went to XJ from here and saw list of applications. Do they have a website?

Thanks,

Jeff

Old not blind...lol. The site you went to is the site that is shown at the top of your browser. XJBikes.com as I posted or XJ4Ever.com which is the second link should get you there. Failing that you can Google XJ forums and it should be placed first on your list.
The link is merely a short cut to the sites specific place that they have the info. If I can help more please let me know.

Just put a set of these lines on The Time Machine. I really appreciate being able to buy what I needed here without any hassles of trying to configure something on my own. Good fit and worth the price!

Rasputin,

Thank's for the heads up!

The parts are arriving for the brake system overhaul and Chacal sent the brake lines PDQ. It was simple enough to figure out what I needed from the link you posted. After a few e-mails I bought the new brake lines and the order was shipped so fast the brake lines won the shipping race with parts I ordered a week ago. It was probably the cool XJ engine logo on the outer package seal that did it -- outstanding!



Priority Mailed braided stainless steel sheathed brake lines.






Front and Rear are O.E.M.-style three front lines and two rear lines that will connect to the original rear hard line and mounting tabs on the swing arm.





This is nice. When all of the rest of the parts I've ordered are actually here in my hands then I'll start tearing down Columbo.

.

I have to apologize to you as I thought 3 phase was the first to install these lines. I had forgotten that you had done them. Please forgive my oversight.

Click the link in Rasputin's initial post in this thread and that'll take you to the page with the parts and prices but send an email to Chacal first
for the current prices before you cut a check or anything.
