I installed my t bars and now the brake and clutch lines are too short. Anyone know if HD sells longer lines or if I can get them from Chopper Steve? Ones that will match up correctly that is.

Thanks,

Dan

The local dealer here sells Goodrich brake lines in all sizes. I have yet to find a new clutch line. I am looking for a clutch line with a chrome inlet fitting. No one makes one yet for the V-Rod. Not that I have found.

Do you have pics, I did the t-bars and the clutch line was fine and the brake line was actually a little long.

I had to put a set of t bars on that had a higher rise than normal because of my height, so they don't reach. Throttle cables are fine but the rest is not. I will try to take some pics tonight. Thanks Nick.

How tall are you, I am 6'3". My bars are more comfortable than the OEM.

npicklo,
What's the rise on your bars?I've been thinking about getting t-bars.

Nick, I'm 5' 4 " so I had to get t bars with a final rise that is close to the OEM bars. I love them but the lines just won't reach. I may just have to go to the stealer and figure it out. :bash:

Hey, where did you end up getting your rear fender? I've been looking at a couple different ones and not sure which one to go with. But if you got that one for 300 bucks it sounds like a great deal. Thanks,

Dan

I just had my front brake and clutch lines, including fittings, replaced with Russell parts.

Not a problem, hope you find what you're looking for. I'm looking forward to seeing mine, it should be a big improvement over stock!

Just got off the phone with the stealer, probably have to go with the Russel hoses. Let me know what the whole thing ran you if you don't mind. Thanks,

Dan

The price for the Russell setup (clutch and front brake lines only) was about $750 CDN for the hardware ONLY. There was quite a bit of labor involved too because they had to perform a mcgevor to construct a fitting for the clutch slave. My dealer did an awesome job - ALL fittings are chrome and look top notch! I would definitely recommend this setup!

That sounds right with labor involved. My guy said a whole setup would be 300 US for parts.
