Same Bike..No Problem

Without moving them, they are stretched. After moving the brake (I just unbolted the master cylinder and passed it through the space in the fork) I don't like the angle of the line. The right answer would seem to be having new lines fabricated that are 2" or 3" longer to maintain the routing in front of the fork tubes, and not stretching them.

Not the thing I want to be doing a couple days before taking off on a trip. It will have to wait until I have time to take the lines off, have new ones made, and then go through the pain of bleeding the ABS.
Hey Dave,

Just FYI stuff but I have the same bike and re-routed cables as Jim recommended and never any issues so as you said I have a lot more control standing and far less strain on me by riding in the neutral standing position! For me the Rox Risers on my '07 GSA are exactly what I wanted and needed..
