Goodridge Superbike front 3-line brake kit?

Has anyone installed the Goodridge Superbike 3-line front brake line kit on 09+ model, kit came with no instructions? Don't know which line goes where, lines not labeled. Lines don't appear long enough to be routed in front of forks. Kit is clearly labeled for 09 ZX6R. Any Pics or advice out there

Iv got the Goodridge 2 line kit on mine. (different bike from yours)
But it should be easy enough, If its the 3 line kit, I'm assuming its got a T joint.

It should go like this:
1 banjo gos to your master, the other 2 go to the calipers, The longer of the two(if one is longer)
gos to the left (clutch) side of the bike.
Simple enough.

On 2nd thought, if you have never done brakes before,?
Here's a bit more, Take your old set off(remembering exactly how it was assembled)
Now lay it on the floor, Lay your new components next to the old & build it accordingly.
Remember not to tight down the crush washers until your certain of your positioning.
You should only use them once.
When you get everything in place & your sure it looks right then & only then tighten it all down.

Take some pictures before you take off the old ones so you can refer back to them if you forget how stuff goes. That usually helps me ALOT!

I've got that kit on my 09. I just redirectioned it until I found the correct orientation (only 3 combos so won't take long). I'll take pictures when I get home tonight if you still need them.

You will want to put them like you stock lines, id say there behind the tubes.

@ the top they will start in front of the tubes, Drop down between & behind the tubes.

If you gone to the trouble of buying goodridge braided hoses, why didnt you get the 2 line race setup for better and stronger braking, one line to each of the calipers direct from the master cylinder, and to answer your question the lines go behind your forks

These lines have 1 connection off the MC and have a T-tap in the middle. I had Galfer 2 lines on my 636 and honestly, I can't tell a difference in feel. Just keep the brakes properly bleed with quality fluid. It was easier to get fluid into these Goodridge lines initally however...

I ran the joints behind...

















I'll have the front end off sometime before the 29th for swapping to track fairings. Let me know if you would like a better view...

I've got the 2 line set on the shelf in the shop now. Can't decide if I want to put them on or get the set with the T. I prefer the look of the T set.

How are the goodridge build quality? I got Spieglers Rennsports and I'm not happy with the fitment.

I prefer the two line myself. Less connections means less potential for leaks.
