I just done a Tokico 4 pot conversion for the GS. The caliper was originally off a RGV250 (VM21). My Tokico piston sizes are 34mm & 30mm respectively, ie the same as the Nissin. Pad is a Premier PH53 HH sintered, EBC158HH Sintered, Ferodo FDB574, SBS 631, or Vesrah VD-343/344. Here's a picture of it on the bike.

banjos on both ends with 15 degree bend. i ordered a 50in after reading a in this thread that was the needed length, but it's way too long. i had to get inventive with routing. 43in should be fine, but measure on your bike to double check.

The standard line is about 40" or a metre long. Depends on whether you follow the standard positioning, & if you are using bar risers as to whether you need longer.

We didn't retain the metal line through the fork legs. To guard against line flex rubbing the tyre we routed it outside the fork leg. Reused standard line retainers.

Yes, slightly angled banjo at the top fitting. The guy that made my fittings used what he called a bungy line at the bottom to allow this to be bent after we fitted the line, so that there was not twisting force on the line (SS lines don't accomodate that well).

Bungy line - interesting. Looks like that's what I need.

My braided line ends in a cut-down original hard line and I've been worried about it being stressed by the line and breaking.

Actually I would have almost preferred to keep the original hard line. That way it could be passed through the fork leg with little issues re getting flexed into the tyre, or caught by passing bushes.

Look in the photo for my earlier post. It's the bent piece of hard line. As I understand it, it'll basically bend (& hold) whatever shape you pull it into, without crimping the hose line.

Question front end replacement

is there any reason why people are not just replacing the whole front end, wont be that much more expensive from a breakers yard, then you get the handling benefit and chop the springs to your needs. i know honda and suzuki use the same headset sizes (am i wrong?).
