fitted braided brake lines, however ...

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

Well I fitted my lines today and if they perform as good as they look I'll be happy 🙂 I have a question though, the guy who made the lines made them a little longer meaning at the back before the line curves up it touches the swingarm brake line

The brake line has a protective sleeve but is it possible that it would cause damage to the swingarm later on ? I honestly can't remember if the stock brake line were touching 🙂

Thanks

zip tie a couple rubber grommets/sleeves over the ss line so it doesn't rub the on the swing arm.

You can do that or just keep an eye on it for a bit and see if the plastic is starting to wear any. There should not be any significant movement in the line back there so I would guess it won't wear.

You could also cut a chunk of old tube and wrap the line in that area with it.

I like 10guy's idea. Cut a small piece of fuel line and zip tie it over the line in that area. Then forget about it! 🙂

Thanks guys

I had some of those wrapping they use for cables lying around (the spiral ones) and used that around the brake line. I'll keep an eye on it.
