    New question here. Can You Spell Banjo without the "O"?

    Interesting.
    I just received these brake lines from Galfer. Decent looking stuff. Lightly coated with clear plastic. The price seemed better that Goodyear and I heard they do color coatings so I gave them a shot. It turns out colors are only avalilable only on motorcycle hoses.

    Anyway the thing is, these are for Shimano calipers and my orig hose has a recess/groove near the ID of the banjo for a tiny O-ring seal. This doesn't. It does come with metal washers but I wonder if this will work?

    I'll call the Galfer but I'd thought I'd share the question here too.

    First of all...it is GoodRIDGE not goodyear - get your bling straight Second - nice looking lines!

    Mount 'em up and give the lever a squeeze. That should be a good indicator of how well they seal. Maybe O-Ring not needed on their version???


    FWIW - the Juicy 7 uses O-rings around the Banjo in a recess like you discribed and the Goodridge replacement lines also had them.


    PS...the Goodridge is available with colored Ano fittings

    I like your test idea. Let's try it on your bike, at the top of a hill Mmmkay?

    Ano fittings...NOW you tell me?
