    Yeah another brake line thread!!

    I have looked around and cant decide on a dealer or brand for a set of braided lines for my '99 1150GS ABS

    I got my HES from EME and the service was superb and I just want to have a similar experience with brake lines.

    But I cant find anyone who seems to stock exactly the right part and will ship to NZ?

    Any ideas? Ta

    Where abouts are you in NZ. I got a line made up for me by Mossrax in Wellington. You need to be careful that the line will meet NZ standards, ie crimped fittings, & marked appropriately.
