Darryl at Cyclops has great prices on Trailtech stuff, even more so if you tell him you come from ADVrider.

Hard to tell, but I'd say probably. It looks of similar design to the Acerbis one that Finn used.

That one is fine, it's what the KTM dirt bikes use.

Nice job CaseJeep. I am seriously thinking about the brake line / high fender mod and its fantastic to have the info and pics in this thread. Thanks also to MCMXCIVRS for all the info in the high fender mod thread. I think I will probably go with the three line setup like MCMX. It looks like it fits pretty cleanly. If you do switch to a two line set up CaseJeep, it would be great if you could post some pics of it.
A nOOb question if you guys don't mind as I have never worked on brake lines before. I follow the process of bleeding and installing the lines. When you refill the fluid do you just pour it in from the reservoir? Will this push all the air down out the bottom bleed valve? The Haynes manuel also says something about having to have a BMW dealer check for any error codes if you do any work on an ABS equipped bike. Thanks for any info.

Yeah Dan, once you have the new lines attached, you unscrew the bleeder valve a few turns. you fill up the reservoir, and pump the front break will the fluid gets low, fill it back up and keep going till the bleeder is continually spiting out fluid. MAKE SURE you dont let any air into the lines from the top, or else you will have to start again.
tighten up that one bleeder valve and go to the other side. repeat.

I havent gotten any error codes on my bike, but of course i have not been riding since.

What's that little light in the middle?
That's my little beasty, They are unbranded 4" HID, from what I can find out about the they are the same housing / reflector as the 4" hid hella optilux. 35watt each, one spread one pencil, if I did it again I'd just get the two spread as the pencil is very focused. The little light is a 55watt halogen junk lamp, I'm surprised it still working. If seen candles throw more light then it does but I will do for now.

I say too big. May look into a KTM SX fender. They used to be a bit shorter in the nose.

I don't have the bike anymore so I can't offer a part #, but you can see the shorter front portion.

Looks like it's angled down too far. Try rocking it back a bit (just use spacers) and see how that looks.
