braided stainless steel sleeve kit

thinking about getting a stainless steel braided sleeve kit to cover the radiator hoses, front brake line, clutch cable....maybe even the exposed wire loom that HD failed to sleeve at the factory, even with plastic sleeves.


it would be a lot of work,......but, it ought to look pretty cool . IMO

If you're going to cover your brake lines, why not just upgrade to actual stainless steel lines? You'll get significantly improved feel and feedback.

The covering on the Brake Hoses would be dangerous. It would hide if the line was to start splitting.

I found out today, that the sportster front brake line will not fit our street.


there is a local place around here, that makes up hydraulic lines and a guy that works for them said they could make a braided brake line for my bike....when I can I will get this done and post pics and info.

Hey Rock I know this thread is a little old, but Free Spirits now sells a Steel Braided Line for the Street model.

If you were still interested you could take a look. Let me know which way you go as I am curious. Thanks

Have a look at my pics for what to do about the exposed wiring.
I used gloss Hydraulic hose wrap which is readily available from any Hydraulic hose doctor.
Easy as to fit and easy to remove for maintenance of adding more accessories wires.

Great thinking. I really like the clean look there and the wiring option you used for the covering application looks like it belongs there.

Curious how that piece would look on color bikes (mine is red)?
