    Formula One with Goodridge kit #109 Owners

    I am moving a set of "Ones" to another bike & have to replace the lines (too short) so I though I would try a set of Goodridge braided SST lines but I am concerned the connection at the lever won't be clean because of the rubber boot design.

    Does the rubber boot fit over the Goodridge hardware ?
    Does the boot have to be modified ?

    Pics of the connection at the lever would be great.

    Thank you.

    Just stick it in

    I thought about trimming the rubber boot to make it fit (and you will have to trim a lot), but I wanted to keep the old line as a backup. Looks fine with the fittings going straight through the lever. I didn't even bother with that yellow heat shrink tubing. I will try to post a picture, but doesn't require much imagination to think about fittings going straight through the lever where the old fittings used to be.

    Yeah I thought the boot would have to be trimmed.
    The lever looks unfinished without the boot, I know it's just cosmetic but the brakes look so good it would be a shame to not have the line enter cleanly.
    I'll contact Formula to see if I can order extra boots.
