Hey guys back again, good to be a part of this great club! Friendly advice and a few laughs lol.
I have a popup 85 Katana that I plan to restore, I am trying to track down the generator and pickup coil covers? They are the alloy colour and not gold, the ones I have are cracked and previously rewelded. Also would it be possible to get an original clutch hydraulic line or one made up as close to original as possible or is aftermarket the only option?
Thanks again, Mike

Ouch!!! If mike hone had a clutch line it would cost you $280. Could try Old Gold in Sydney's west I think, or look at aftermarket. I got a full set of braided brake lines from UK for my 82' and all were well made.
CMS in Netherlands have covers, but I'm not sure what color for the listed GSX750 (SE) 1984.

Thanks Tomcat, yeah figured the clutch line was a long shot lol:)

The brake lines I got from http://www.ebay.com.au/usr/wezmoto-eu?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2754.
Was $278 for full set front & rear.

Am sure there would be cheaper options out there, but I made rash decisions in the early days.

If you still have the original hyd line, use it as the template for an aftermarket line so they can position the fittings the right way and not have twists in the line. It will be a much tidier job if they have the original line to copy.

Thanks Tomcat and shin-Ken good ideas.

The original has a steel section under the tank, Enzed can make new ends on it and new hoses.
But their quote was quite dear...

I got Hel performance to make a braided line for half that, their lines are thin and dont have any clearance issues under the tank.
He lists it on the website now

I bought a brand new OEM Clutch line from Mick Hone about 19 months ago, they are still available. Jim

Thanks Darkside, may try cleaning them up and then if I'm not happy buy new ones. Thanks Jim, they weren't available a couple of days ago but will recheck.
