OK, I have all the parts for my 1983 XL(X) brake line assembly. My XLH has been 'upgraded' with several XLX parts including an XLX handlebar, albeit a chromed one.

I used a section of neoprene fuel line cable-tied to my OEM XLH brake lines to get my measurements (then stretched the line out straight to measure). The parts come from three different mfg's so I didn't list part numbers. No single vendor had everything.

I am somewhat disappointed that the hoses are so skinny compared to the OEM hoses.

I need to replace my speedometer at the same time I replace the brake lines, so I'll put that off till the weather worsens.

Thanks again for all the input!
