Pretty straight forward; bleed, replace, fill, & bleed.



This section is a little tricky, I remove the top bolt for easier access to those hard line bolts.



When tightening MC banjo you really got to pull that banjo w your other hand so that it does not contact & short that switch and blew a fuse like I did, easy fix though.



I torque all banjo bolts to 24 in lbs

Glad the switch fix was easy (y)
thank you.

I’m sure there’s a good technique y’all use to keep those banjos from turning when tightening, I just don’t do it often enough to figuring one out haha

Glad you got them on, like you said, pretty straightforward. Curious, was yours also with no longer bolt included for the fender block, and you had to buy a longer one?

Thanks for the help w this one!
It did NOT include the required longer bolt, Goodridge is missing the mark on this one.
I had to resize a spare I had.

Has anyone got hold of Goodridge about this bolt issue?

Is it possible that all these kits with short bolts are chinese clone/fake kits?
I ordered from directly Goodridge UK while I was waiting for my order I was in contact w them. It was taking longer than normal during 1st Covid shutdown. Not sure how it could be counterfeit knock off, In my case anyway.
There is also no installation instructions. I just figured that’s just how they do it; bare bones race parts haha.

I am guessing Goodrich is assuming the stock bolt is to be reused, so they do not include one, so per say there is no "short bolt" per say. Rather an omission on R&D, LOL. They are made upon order, and I do not think they can be ordered elsewhere. I ordered mine too from them, in England.

But if its wrong its wrong and someone needs to call out their bullshit.

Assuming with a brake kit is very dangerous. I expect better from Goodrich.

I agree, the kit should be complete especially for the price.

Maybe they changed suppliers and the banjos are now thicker?

Or which bolt am I thinking this is?

Out of curiosity, do you feel any difference in lever travel or stiffness with the stainless lines on the ABS?

It’s actually this bolt right here that needs to be 5MM or so longer than OEM.
But you could be right, that metal block support dimensions could have recently changed.

But their QC should have caught that

Yes it’s a little crooked, but I fixed it after the photo haha

I haven’t gone more than a quick rip on the local fwy, but I noted a little better feel of stiffness. I’ll report back when I get out some work on it.
