Holy , this has turned out to be a JOKE! Hufco can and will do it, but they don't stock a fitting small enough. Motorcycles Unlimited says you can't do it (right) and nobody in this entire city carries a fitting. My what a headache. Returning this thing and getting a custom line.

Can I do it?
No.

Can it be done?
Possibly, as long as the place has the correct fittings and die.
Unfortunately lines are not standardized between mfr's so that makes it iffy at best.

How long of a line and what angle fittings do you need?

I can always bring this hose to you. The fitting I need is just a straight fitting. The line I have is a Goodridge line and I have no idea what size it is. Hufco will shorten it, but I need the fitting. Which apparently nobody has in stock in this entire city.

It's literally a bunch of phone calls. If I can't get a fitting, then I'll just print this return label and have some lines made.
