Got mine replaced in april.along with the pump to rack
Louis-Alain from the UrQ list was going to a local
hydraulics shop in
he got replacements made for me. they salvaged the
damper/restrictor for
the old HP brake hose and put it in the new one.
It cost me about $150CAD for both hoses.

not a pita the replace, just release the bomb pressure
with 40  pumps on
the brakes and undo.
you are supposed to use new hose end seals which are
copper washers OR O
rings depending on the vintage.

and erm don't to it in the dark, with no jack, a
mini-maglite and at the
same time as an oil change, then **AHEM** fit the sump
plug copper
washer to the bomb thinking that it's the right one
'cos your green gold
will spray everywhere and you'll have to start again.

Or so they say
