A couple of years ago there were some on Ebay which some members installed, but they don't seem to be listed anymore.

Just did a search on Google for "braided stainles steel brake lines" and found several hits.

I recall one member whose new kit ran two full length hoses from the master cylinder down to the brake calipers.
Something like this link: http://www.motorcycle-superstore.co...ersal-Braided-Stainless-Steel-Brake-Line.aspx
Make sure you get enough new copper washers/seals and a longer bolt to pass through two banjo fittings and into the master cylinder. :)

The only two places I know that make QUALITY SS brake lines are the aforementioned Galfer and Russell:

I have no experience with others on the market, but just again warn buying cheap eBay lines if you're not sure who makes them.

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...

I can only find that in the UK... i have cross referenced the brand as well as the part number. every hit comes for the UK.
ah, ok... Thanks for looking Slim. I guess it's a UK only brand. Pity, as they really are excellent.

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

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....

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