The GKTECH braided clutch lines are a direct replacement and are stronger than the OEM lines. The OEM lines are rubber which are economical to produce but after 20+ years, they're prone to splitting and are susceptible to expanding which in turn gives a spongy feeling, particuarly when heat is introduced. Our braided clutch lines remove this spongy feeling and our optional high temp heat sleeve helps even further.
If you're doing an auto to manual conversion or if you simply want to delete the complexity of OEM clutch line damper system our damper delete kit is the one you'll want. This line runs direct from the master cylinder to the slave with no noticable negatives.
Alternatively, if you'd like to retain the OEM damper system and just replace the OEM rubber line, meaning it will run from the OEM damper system to the slave cylinder select the non damper delete option.
The GKTECH braided clutch lines are assembled by us in-house in Australia using quality UK made stainless steel fittings, stainless steel braided line with a Teflon inner tube and PVC outer for protection, which comply with all ADR, DOT and TUV specifications.

What are the differences in line length? The OEM clutch damper delete clutch line that runs from the master cylinder to the slave cylinder measures 60cm end to end. The clutch line which retains the factory clutch damper system which goes to the slave cylinder measures 28cm end to end.
How do I know which clutch line I need? The option is up to yourself, if you are doing a manual conversion and you don't want to run the bulky factory damper system or if you wanted to have things less complicated and clean up the appearance then you would select the damper delete option.
I am doing a manual conversion, which clutch line do I buy?Unless you have all the damper hard lines, which is super uncommon when purchasing a conversion, all you would need is the one line from the master cylinder to the slave cylinder being the damper delete.
