One of the mods I wanted to do to my DL650 was to fit braided hoses to the brake lines - it's one thing I do to all my bikes; I think it improves the response.
So I was looking through an accessory catalogue (M&P probably) to check out a price for the hoses, and as with so many V-Strom things, there was no listing. I then went on the Net to look, and happened to go to Goodridge's site first. Again, there was no listing, so I e-mailed them for a price.
I got an e-mail back almost immediately stating that at present they had no kit listed for the 650, but if I could send my original brake lines to them, they would match them up and make up a set for me FOR FREE!
Naturally, the lines were in the post asap, and within a week or so the set arrived. They fitted really well, included a very neat three-way block at the front and a heat shield at the back, just like the originals. They look great and feel a whole lot better. If anyone wants pics, PM me.
The product codes are SU0658-1RC / SU0658-3FC. I can do little else but recommend Goodridge unreservedly.
