Replacing old-style front brake line

I have an original 2005 front brake setup with the brake line that crosses over the low fender. I want to switch that to the modern setup with separate lines that joint together under the triples. Does anyone have the list of parts that works for this conversion? I know I want to avoid the ABS lines, but does one year of standard lines work better than another? I think the mounting bracket that goes under the triples should work fine, but I'm really not sure about the right lines to use.

Nope. Not that setup. I'm looking for the setup that creates the brake line loops that stick out of the front of the bike.

I have 2004 S model and have been contemplating the same mod so I can go from low to high fender when I want. I have the Touratech high fender kit but did not like the brake line routing and large loop at the master.

I looked around in all the posts some time back and never found that parts list. I plan to go through the exploded parts view of a newer S model that uses this setup and simply write down the part numbers and order everything. Given the length of time KTM parts have been delivered I should have this accomplished in a year or so. Ha !

Let's stay in touch. I'm thinking I'll order 2010 or 2011 parts and try to make it work. I can't wait to get rid of that big brake line loop that sticks right up in line with my gauges. Oh, I've also had pretty good luck with Powersports Warehouse.

How did you twist your brake line? I've never even noticed mine let alone had it block the instruments

Mine doesn't have the loop, so it just sticks up. Came that way.

I'm going to do this. My biggest issue in trying to figure out what length of front brake line to get -- the standard (non-ABS) or the "R" version. I think I need the "R" height. My June 2004 (i.e., 2005) KTM has always seemed much taller than the newer standards. Have a look at the axles in comparison to the bash plates.

A 2010 "R".


My bike:


I think they look comparable, so I'm going with the "R" length line for my bike. Here are the part numbers that I'm ordering
  • 6011301200033 -- the front line (1)
  • 60101078000 -- the triple bracket (1)
  • 0603100141 -- banjo washers (6)
  • 50213025000 - new banjo bolts. (2)
  • 60101077000 - brake line guide for triples. (1)
  • 60101079000 - another guide (1)
  • 0012060164 - screws to mount the plastic guides (3)

I may not need the banjo bolts, but they aren't expensive. Total costs at PSW looks to be may $110 before shipping. I still need to track down the screws that hold the plastic bracket on the bottom of the triples.

I vaugely remember someone mentioned that the 990 tee pipe wasn't really wide enough to clear the high fender without some fit compromise. It seems like the only viable option would be a custom piece (like the one Pyndon made); an excellent opportunity for one of our more industrious inmates...

I'm also thinking doing this... 2010R being the model with the bigger travel, I guess I'll go this way
(the S between wheel and triple clamp may be a little bit bigger)

A couple plastic spacers will give enough clearance for the high fender.
on the 990 anyways.

Question

So, I got all of the parts to switch out the front brake line. However, I can't tell from the schematic how I am supposed to mount these two little guides. Does anyone with a 990 have a picture or can you explain to me what I am supposed to do with these two guides?

These two bolt on the lower side of the upper steering triple clamp.

IIRC correcly, there should be threaded holes ot the lower surface of the upper triple clamp.
Cheers.
