i can find the brand in automotive applications, dirt bikes and sports bikes, just not cruisers, and the part number listed on ebay references back to a Goodridge number that only sells in the UK

It makes bleeding the brakes alot easier. The stock splitter thing seems to let air bubbles hide inside of it.

Just had a look at the part number on that eBay auction and it's different to the one listed by my local Kawasaki agent. They are showing the number as KW0753-3FC. Don't know if that would make a difference?

Edit: Just found a vendor in CA who has them under a totally different part number but I'm not sure if this is a 2 hose or a 3 hose kit. You'd need to check with the vendor to ascertain exactly what is in the box....

I also suggest losing the stock "splitter block" and running duel hoses right off the MC if you can. (this requires a duel banjo bolt...
