Default 1981 Ironhead Dual disk question

I’m wanting to add +8 tubes on my 81 dual disk sporty. The issue I’m having is that I can’t seem to find the bottom brake lines that separate to each disk. I’ll need to find some that can extend out to the brake calipers with +8. If anyone could help that would be great, thanks.

Hi,

they are available ready made by Goodridge, or go to your local bike shop they should be able to sort you with what you require.

Andy.

You probably won't be able to find them as a pair, but individual lines are readily available. If you can't find the correct combination of length and fittings in a single line you can make it out of pieces with threaded lines and adapters. Russell has a good selection of the necessary parts.
