Custom braided steel brake hose vendors--Who?

I'm trying to get the remainder of my streetfighter build finished, but after going to the 1000rr front end and using dirt bike bars and protaper risers..I need longer brake and clutch lines than stock. I can get the Russell lines, but with them the fittings are not installed on the lines, you have to thread whatever fitting you need on. I'd rather not go that route due to many potential leak points. Has anybody bought or know who to sells custom length lines with fittings attached? I had checked HEL and Spiegler, but there is nothing listed on there site. Ideas???

+1 on Galfer. Just measure several times to be sure Custom lengths were only like $10 bucks or so more than bike specific lines and the service was great.

I bought 4" longer brake and clutch lines from Galfer when I put superbike bars on my Hawk using a second upper triple clamp. They worked great. I got them direct from Galfer. They did screw up and send me a stock length clutch line on the first go round. Its been a couple years and they are great.

Call HEL Performance USA and ask for Jim Miller. His number is on their web site, and his e-mail is [email protected]
I ordered new braided lines for my F4i setup and new Apex risers. He included two inch longer for front brake and clutch at no extra charge. Super customer service, and it was shipped to Pacific NW in three days.
I am extremely satisfied with the quality of the lines, in addition to their service.
