Good stuff.
I do have a stupid quesiton though....
What keeps copper lines (or anything hardlined really) and the fittings from vibrating to bits?
I mean shouldn't lines have alittle bit of flex?
I know copper has some give but the wierdest things seem to break on bikes.

from what i have learned for any long lengths put in a vibration loop or two...good quality flares & fittings (prefferably 37 degree) and for the compression fittings use the type with the internal sleeve.

I have used .030" wall, soft copper refrigeration tubing, on a couple bikes and have not heard of a problem from owners. I normally use Swagelock fittings. Prefer 304 SS, .035 wall though.
