anyone used a Honda CR Front Brake Line

Recommended Posts

I smashed my steel front brake line...the one under the left fork...and have heard that you can install a complete Honda CR front brake line...from resevoir to the caliper...thus eliminating the steel line under the front fork. If you've done this...which brake line did you use (year,model). Thanks.

Get a steel braided line for a 2000 CR250. There are a few aftermarket companies that make them.

Here is a pic after my CR brakeline mod...like Brewster said...a 2000 CR 250 brake line will fit.

Good Luck!

I used a stock '05 YZ front brake line and cable clamp (the new one's are routed CR-style), with LightSpeed fork guards on a '96 YZ250. It looks clean and "stock", and gives a great, solid feel at the lever. Lots of companies offer front brakelines with the CR-style option. Check the TT store!

Thanks for the tips fellas. I'm going to order the part today, and will post the install/results after the mod.

Have fun bleeding the system :banghead:

It only takes a very little amount of air in the line to make the brake spongy.
