One more thing.
I'm using a Corvette MC and to make it accept the 3/8" double flare fittings, I had to buy two adapter fittings intended for this purpose.
But one of them seems to not have enough threads? It screws all the way in and I really don't know if it is the flare inside that stops it, or that the threaded area on the adapter fitting simply is too short and stop it that way..?
Any of you with experience on this?

The Corvette MC takes a special fitting - and some of them are metric, depending on the year. If it threads all the way in, it's wrong. I know you are in Norway, but if you can easily remove your MC and take it to a parts store, you might be in luck. Also, some are straight fittings rather then pipe - again, depending on the year/part number of that MC.

I used banjo fittings from Inline Tube( to plumb this one:
