I tend to use HEL lines, I get them from Mike at Bikers Discount Store - http://www.bikersdiscountstore.co.uk/.
Always give top service at the best price......

Yup - and good improvement, especially on the rear:


I too like Hel lines. Very good company to deal with.

Hi All,

Same as you mate, I have a 13 plate 14 FDFA ABS, without having a set made up by giving dimensions etc. I cant find anybody that does off the shelf kits for this bike, even HEL and COBRA and R&G.

So if you find any anywhere let me know mate and I'll do likewise
When in doubt, use full throttle. It may not improve the situation, but it will end the suspense

See my post above - Mike at Bikers Discount Store will make them exactly how you want using HEL kit, he is one of their dealers.
He made the lines for my track Triumph that has a mishmash of braking equipment!

Cheers mate, may be a stupid question ROFL2 but will i have to measure all my lines and give Mike the dimensions etc. or will he have details if i tell him what bike i have?
