Fren Tubo Brake line install ??

hello everyone, i ordered myself some type 3 fren tubo brake lines and i am in the process of installation.

It seems the line for the left caliper goes on fine. I FEEL like im having some trouble with the line for the right caliper.

YES, i did put the longer line to the left caliper and shorter line to the right. I just am kind of worried that the right line looks a little more Kinked than the left and want to ask you guys if this looks ok.


This is how the line for the left lines up, barely any bends of any kind.




and this is the right caliper, kind of kinked and im not sure of thats ok or not?!








PS. i did look up a how to, and found this: http://www.r6-forum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=95750 but the pictures wont show up for me so it doesnt really help.

Re: Fren Tubo Brake line install ??

That little post/stop on the caliper is there to keep the banjo from moving when you tighten it. So basically on the right caliper the line should be on the left of the stop, you have it on the right. Honestly I just removed the two metal hose holders, They kink the lines no matter what.

get rid of stock brake line holders, that'll solve all problems.

Might have the right line on backwards. How does it look/fit when dry-fit the other way?


(excuse typos, as this was a mobile posting)

Re: Fren Tubo Brake line install ??

i took off both brake line holders and flipped the right line as suggested. looks better and no kinks. i figured the brake line holders wouldnt be neccessary but i wanted to play it safe, but this is much less of a hassle so ill keep it this way, thanks guys!

Is this right? The brake side line doesn't look right to me? The fit perfectly at the calipers and the clutch side seems perfect
