I got a gaffer or galfer kit for around 50 us I think that was a double banjo and eliminated the front splitter for the gl. Be very similar for cb. Ill look it up and see I may be misremembering a bit

Is eliminating the front splitter is a good idea Mike?  I may well go that route too if yes.  The Galfer set up I saw on Dime City was going to run me two bills US in total - three lines up front and one for the rear (including all the banjos).

This is how my chopper is set up on the back brake. With 3AN fittings. I always run a splitter on dual calipers, because they keep the pressure balanced.

Ok cool, I'm not familiar with the 3AN-bolt-directly-into-the-caliper method, I thought it was banjos or bust.  Good to know.  Are there any advantages to the 3AN system over banjos?

You eliminate the need for banjos and crush washers, so I guess there's less chances for a leak?

Well I'll be dipped in shit.  Only ordered these mid last week from Japan and they just showed up now -



Gotta love the Nihonjin.  They look great, quality looks top notch and, for the money ($150 for the 823cc overbore set including rings, wrist pins, clips and head gasket) no complaints whatsoever.  Ordered two more sets for a friend, and no taxes at the border.  Damn, happy days.
