It's the rear brake cable approx two inches before it connects to rear caliper. It didnt tear any rubber away, just a clean slice. Photo is crap but where the bend is in the line is where the barb wire grabbed it.

I sucked up about 3 feet of barb wire last Wednesday and didn't catch it till Friday.

Any recommendations on an aftermarket hose. I cant see anything aftermarket improving that particular function of the bike. In the mean time I'm going to stick some

The Stock brake hose allows more expansion, more hose expansion = less braking performance. Get a front brake hose while you're at it, the front brake does most of the work.

Thank you. I'm the opposite. If I can't get it right after replacing it I'll Flinestone my way up:)

Steelbraided would be better yes. My front brakes are spongey as hell compared to the 530 with braided lines. I tried to do stoppies on the dr with the sumo kit mounted but between the squishy feel and the suspension diving when I try it doesnt exactly inspire the confidence to git'r done
