Source for F650GS (Twin) longer front brake line?

Installed 20mm risers on my F650 twin and the front brake line is way to freeeekin tight. (no surprise)

Any inmates have a source for a quality replacement front brake lines? Would prefer one with the rubber sleeve on the outside of the braided line if it exists.

Looks like Touratech has one (link) but it's $100 (way too much $$)
Saw this one (linky).. but no clue on the quality.

Suggestions ?

I used the one that F800Depot.com sells .... worked fine with my 20mm risers, but I do not think that (at least the one I got) would have been long enough to use with the ROX adjustable units....

Picked mine up at solomoto but with only 20mm rise you shouldn't need anything.

My stock line also works fine with 20mm risers. The exception would be if the OP is trying to roll the bars back from the neutral position. GH

Front Brake Line

You may want to consider the Spiegler PT # S-BM0160. cost about $60. I used it for my Rox Risers - line adds +2 inches.

Found online ordering at SoloMotoParts.com

F800GS / F650GS twin version:

http://www.solomotoparts.com/Spiegle...-F800GS-08-11/

I just ordered one for my wife's F650 (blue / blue) and one for my F800 (white / black) each at 4cm longer than stock OEM length.
