Brake lines question..

are there any performance difference on 2 lines coming from the master to each caliper, 1 line from the master and a "T" to separate one line for each caliper or 1 line from the master to one caliper and another line conecting both calipers (like triumphs 675)??

Re: Brake lines question..

no.

two separate lines from the master, one to each caliper, is called "direct"
the other, one line from the master, then T'ing to each caliper, is called standard (from what i understand).

people say direct is easier to bleed, and install, but idk... i have a direct setup. only system i've ever bled. as for performance, a closed hydraulic system is a closed hydraulic system. no difference in fluid pressure transfer between the two.

oh, and typically, the direct setups are cheaper - less fittings and what not.
