Rerouting brake lines

Recommended Posts

Boyda

Put some new handlebars on my bike today and realized that my brake line is about 1 in too short is there any way I can reroute the brake line to get the extra inch or is my only option to get new brake lines?

You could stop running the line down the left fork leg then over the fender.

Run the line down the right fork leg, then over the fender. I show how in this mod here.

If he's got ABS it'll be running back to the ABS block under the brake side cover. It won't help to reroute the Calipers if that's the case. There's not a lot of slack to play with in that case.

I had the same issue. I wound up buying Core Moto SS lines and had the front line extended 2 inches.

You are correct I do have the abs modal and am running into the issue where there is not enough slack
