Yep. two round lights is what I am hoping to stay with. There has got to be a better reflector option out there than the stock one. I like the 2 light look.

Looking forward to seeing the results. Right now I'm leaning toward the fuego lights but havn't done any measurements. Looks like it would be pretty easy to fab up a bracket out of flat bar or alum brackets. They have one on their site that also might work as a starting point.

YEP. It's like making music. Everything ends up being borrowed and shared in the name of inspiration. For instance Case, I love the look and function of this fender mod so I'm planning to rip you off along with everyone else that's done it. I just need to make sure it all works on your bike first.

I've been admiring your bike from a far for some time now Lost Rider!

started to put on the brake lines today. i didnt get them 100% done but im close.

now that i have the lines in hand and on the bike there are a few things i would do differently. but i will let you know the full list after the install is complete.

so let me go though what i did.

first of all you will need this cool tool.

2011-10-18_17-43-06_637

then you unscrew this:

2011-10-18_17-43-13_808

You can bleed the line like such:

2011-10-18_17-46-41_343

or just unbolt the line.

i then unbolted all the components of the brakelines.

2011-10-18_17-53-29_352

2011-10-18_17-53-52_498

2011-10-18_18-00-05_677

and then it should look like this:

2011-10-18_18-00-00_560


Now here is were the fun starts. and where i would make my fist change.

there is this little piece that sticks out from the caliper. and since i got my banjo fitting:
Type020

and on the left side that works great, but on the right side that little piece makes it so it wont fit. so if you are planning on doing this, get a strait banjo.

this is what im talking about.
2011-10-18_18-36-29_677

and the only way we could make it fit was to cut it off.

2011-10-18_18-38-48_972

after that it fit perfectly!

2011-10-18_18-40-03_669

2011-10-18_18-40-06_964

the left side was easy!

2011-10-18_19-15-26_109

and i just ran the ABS censer up along the brake line.

2011-10-18_21-39-41_368


2011-10-18_21-45-13_174

now for the tricky part. placing the T-fitting, i tried 5 or 6 different ways of putting it in:

but until i come up with a better way of doing it this is what it looks like.

2011-10-18_19-15-38_860

2011-10-18_21-39-59_226

2011-10-18_21-39-48_644

the last banjo fitting is wrong on my lines, i got a strait one when it needs to be 90 or 45 angle.

2011-10-18_21-40-07_630

its being pulled alittle but im sure its safe.

2011-10-18_21-44-45_485

2011-10-18_21-44-34_735

i finished it off with some easy fixings!

2011-10-18_21-45-00_943

i plan on getting the right guides but for not this works.
let me know what you guys think. it didnt come out as good as i wanted but oh well.

looks to me like you ordered the lines a bit too long. I've been thinking about doing this and eliminating the cross over. Its a basic 3 line kit and is often done on many sport bikes that come with the bypass line like ours. For race or track use people go to a 3 line kit to get better braking feedback from the brakes.

i did that. the lengths are ok, its the 3rd banjo that is wrong. i think im going to scrap this set up and reorder with only using 2 lines.

yes i saw your post. But your line set up seems more complicated than i want mine to be. i found one where someone just ran two lines up and attached them right up to the ABS connector.

Would you then use the long banjo bolt from the LH caliper up the top & vice-versa?

Yep, that's my plan, just gotta find someone in Oz to make up the lines
What is the correct length for this 2 line system?

I believe 40inches. but that all changes depending on how you want to guide the lines up.

Mi set up

Case,

This is my set up for the lights (HID kit in original housing and Rigid ind Dualy led lights) and the WS.

Light is amazing! I don't have great nocturnal vision and this helps a lot!

WS: great and adjustable. With WS all the way up I can do 120kph with open visor without a problem (6.2 with 34' inseam). With WS all the way down it is great for off road.

Cheers and keep us posted!

SP
