Leaky brake line gaskets

Has anyone had problems with brake line gaskets leaking?. I had aluminum ones and they leaked badly, now I have copper ones and they still weep a bit. Anyone have a tried & true fix for this problem? Thanks

I can never get the copper or aluminum ones to seal. Go to the Harley dealer and get some stock ones. They have an o-ring built right into the washer. They will seal!!

Of course you will have to tell the highly trained parts person what year and model your bike is.........

I ended up going to the dreaded dealer for the same little parts. When the nimrod brought out the gaskets (After I explained to him what I wanted and I just said a year bike to make him happy) he actually looked at these crush washers and said....Those look neat....How do they work!!!!!!!

So go somewhere else like Calcustom said it will save you the grief. I did not have much of a choice at the time.

Hey man, like des smart folks say............. you aint go ta go to da Harley chop to find a good banjo washer! I had issues with the aluminium ones with the rubber oring inside....... the brass or coppa ones work best, but ya right sometimes them platin fools don't debur there shit, and causes high spots. Take some fine ass emerly cloth or fine paper, ( not like the type you smoke) but fine grit and carefuly sand around the bolt and caliper....... before you know, that shit will seal....... and you can be flying high like me! you all smoke um if ya got um.......


oh yea, da Calcustom man be right, you have lot's of choises on where to buy your shit!......... maybe he has the best deal to!

When asked the dreaded stupid question.

I answer......THIS YEAR.....MY MODEL....

Now please go back in to your dungon and find the part I asked you for.

Jesus I picked up a couple of batteries once at the stealership and he asked me "What make and model?"
Dude........there on the shelf behind you, turn around slowley and hand me two of them things right there.

Sometimes I just walk behind the counter flip the pages to his magic book and point at the pictures. But that does tend to make them nervous

I hate stealerships
