Metallic flexible hoses for a JDM 12at

Post by Traxnada » Sun Oct 30, 2016 1:41 am

I want to change my flexible brake hoses and replace them with metallic ones instead...
I've done the "swap" on a Miata and the pedal feel was MUCH better, so I want to do the same thing on my SA22C.
Is there anybody out there selling some? a company that makes them?
Can't seem to find anything for now...

Paypal is possible positive reputation in Germany's motorbike scene. I myself drive racing beat Brakelines on my S3.

Attention: 12AT brakelines must be same as S3 in Germany. Post some pictures should help to get sure.

We've had UK lines made to patterns in the past. I can't remember who???

Whatever, don't forget the 5th line (chassis to rear axle).

Edit Note.....here we are, Aberdeen in Scotland.

I got mine made up from genuine Hel components by Wallace Performance in Aberdeen. One of the guys there, Woflie, has an FD and was happy to make me up a set. In fact, he asked if I could send him the original rubber hoses back so he has a template to work from to make some more up. Only trouble is I don't have a clutch line to send, hence my Wanted thread for one. If anyone can help out, it'd be nice to have a UK supplier for future sets of lines. wouldn't it? I'm sure we could persuade a group buy out of them, sound blokes

I sent mine directly to Hel Performance for them to make up a braided set. Had the new ones back within about 4-5 days! :o They don't seem to have put them on the website though..

There are some pictures in here

Awesome, thanks a lot guys! I'll probably just order the first ones to give it a try...
I'll look for the 5th line too as I definitely would have forgotten about it lol
