Put me down as a maybe. I like MCMXCIVRS's setup, I may spring for that.

Ideally this kit will come with the hardware needed to keep the brake lines "in line" and away from the wheel. I am envisioning some type of dirt bike style wires that guide both lines up around the forks.

It should be clear we want a dual line setup that combines high (up near the triple clamp) and not just a barely higher cross-over...

Also we should aim for a price well under the TT kit.

If you get what you want then I want what you are having too!

brake lines

Don't get your hopes up. Dendrophobe paid Speigler $260 for the lines alone. I'm hoping for $200 for the lines from another vendor. I don't expect that price to include standoffs. This is the kind of project that will rack up costs quickly. If it not worth it to you, then look for another solution, and let us know what you come up with!

260 was for the lines, new banjo bolts and the triple manifold to tie it all together. Not including shipping. IT WAS NOT ACTUALLY 260 - I WAS QUOTED WRONG. $360 IS CORRECT.

The new fender and fork guards I'm putting on were another 90, and none of that includes a way to route the lines. I'm thinking some kind of clamp at the top of the fork guard, and a loose guide up top. The motorcross lines should be stiff enough that that's all I need.

new lines

Sorry, Doug, I didn't write clearly. I didn't mean you paid $260 for the lines *alone*. I meant the bill from Spiegler for the lines and fittings....just as you wrote. As you noted, the fender and fork guards add another $100, plus the fabricated parts necessary for assembly.

I was responding to someone else writing that this needs to come in under Touratech's price for the higher fender & brake lines they sell. Ain't gonna happen! Not even close. If some people don't want to spend the $400, or so, this will cost - that is completely understandable, and they can go back to complaining about BMW building a dangerous bike. Or *not* complaining...whatever. This thread is about sourcing the replacement lines/fittings so that they are made properly, and eliminating the guesswork involved in this critical component of the modification.

We don't need gold plated lines and manifolds but if no one can beat that price then so be it... Shopping around and a group buy price can't hurt

The price of safety is a lot, just the Leatt brace I want to get is already more expensive!

Yeah, if I had known it was that expensive, I might have gone a different route. By the time I knew he had told me the wrong amount, my non-returnable custom lines had already shipped!

Oh well, at least they'll be nice... I sure wish I could have put that $100 toward a pressure suit though!
