Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Does anyone here have a front or rear HEL braided hose that they'd be willing to sell?

I've never heard of that brand of hose before. I'll have to look into them before I make a decision on that one.

I bought some HEL hoses for an Africa Twin once and they were so long that they reached the floor.If you do get some check the length.

I've used goodridge lines on a couple of bikes. They're decent kit from a company with a long race heritage & they come OEM on a fair few bikes that have braided lines as standard. I'd advise new banjo washers or at the very least annealing the old ones (heat to cherry red then quench in cold water) to get their shape back.

Good ridge and Aeroquip are actual manufacturers. Hel is a marketing organisation that assembles finished hoses using Aeroquip materials I believe.

I've got HEL on mine and the front is fine, rear is just a tad too long but no big whoop...... price on them new is pretty good also iirc they are allot cheaper than Goodridge or Venhill think I paid £25each.

I did some research when I first looked who to buy from them from and heard good things from all 3 and most people said just go for the cheapest.

The only thing they did agree on is that Goodridges customer service is apparently pretty bad. Venhill were a tad off on the phone aswell which made me even happier about going to HEL.

Ive got Cobra hoses on mine, the paperwork that came with them said they manufacture their hoses under licence to Hel and they rebrand them. Same product, but the Cobras are a fiver cheaper

It's not unusual for good bike shops to stock the components from whoever, and to make up the hoses for you. Or 'Wezmoto' on eBay - £39.95 for the set.
