Galfer lines

I did the install of the Galfer superbike lines this weekend. They look KILLER on... They work well too. The install was good EXCEPT I had to shave the lip off of the master cylinder where the lines attach with the banjo bolt at the lever. You will see what I mean... The lines just touch the ram air tube when at full left turn, however it is just barely touching, so it's not that big of a deal. Without shaving off the lip on the master cylinder, the lines won't allow the bars to turn even close to full left... Just an FYI for those considering those lines. Here is a link to my gallery so you can see them installed...

If you have a black bike, you will LOVE them... Check it out.

I ordered the stainless/silver. We'll see how it looks. I really like what you did with the tank bracket and bolts for the dampener. Consider that idea stolen.

Sweet bike!

Nice tank sticker :D

Where did you get those front signals, and how well do they work?

Couldn't really get a feel for what you were talking about with the brake lines- could you post some more pics?

I just put on the Galfer lines yesterday, but i didnt have to shave anything, I remember looking at a post that had the lines low and forward of the stays on the mastercylinder. They dont touch at all, but when i go home ill check it again.

yea i got the blue (they look sort of aqua green) with the black bike.

well i was balling testing all my new gear out MRA screen (garbage) it directs a hi amount of air directly at the top of you head and the side so if you turn your head durring a 150mph tight sweeper it forces your head all the way back, it scared all fuck out of me, thought i was in grade school again and the teacher caught me stairing at the hot chick,

oh yea brake lines, well it was a assed out night..rear sets in the wrong position (my fault)

but i got to squeze the brakes and to my surprise fluid sprays all over the place (yea going hi 160's i was like ohhh fuckkkkkk) that and the fucking MRA i almost ran smack into a semi!!!!

oh well back to LP screen, MRA WAS GOOD UP TO ABOUT 145MPH THEN IT WAS HELL, GOOD FOR DRAGGERS I GUESS
