Lads.

i need a bit of info regarding these. as pointed out by a few people, i can save money by getting the lines made up and from cheaper suppliers...

http://stores.ebay.co.uk/uptheshop/_i.h ... =795056014

what lengths do i need (i will be needing 2 for the front and 2 for the rear.

and what end fittings, eg banjos? washers?

thanks in advance lads!

Ben

Best way would be to take an original and say 'copy that please'. Thats what I done with mine :)

Ahh nah, I disnt send it off mate. I found a place near me that done it (James Listers for reference), took my old clutch hose in (exactly the same as brake pipe on the Pulsar) and asked them to copy it :)

Have you had a lookmfor anywhere local? That hose I mention came to £8 doing it this way, although I expect its a bit more expensive now with inflation.

Yeah, to be honest, when I got mine made up, I was shocked at how low it was :lol:

Let me know how you get on with them.

Des, inflation has certainly gone up. £15.00 each! therefore with postage on top of that it will work out cheaper for me to get goodridge lines for £57.00 with free p+p of ebay. thanks anyway though buddy :)

Nah, they should be the same size on either size, but you know what cars are like - sometimes companies do stupid things. But I'm pretty sure they're the same either side though.

Ahh, just seen your reply. Yeah, sounds better for you to go for the kit. That's not bad. Nevermind, at least it's still good for me :D :P :lol: I can just pop down there and get discount for it being less effort, and because they see my car and think "oooo, animal, let's do it right!"

Either that or they know it's bound to break soon so they want my business :lol:

Haha, you are but a youngster in the realms of FSi, and my car is bloody good for a 20year old rally car thats run as a daily driver. Yeah its had a few problems, but I do all the work myself so not a problem. Certainly wouldnt own a Pulsar if I couldnt work on it :lol:
