CR routed brakeline Question
Posted February 24, 2003 - 09:51 PM
There has been something that has been bugging me since I did it - the castings on the fork leg that guided the original line. I want to grind them off. I think I will do so this week...
Anyone else gone as far as doing the grind? I really don't see myself putting the stock line back on...

Do you still have your headlight on?
I wanted to go CR route, but I thought there was an issue w/ the headlight (and overall length of the YZF - CR routed- replacement brake line...???).
At this point, I am so tired of this loop-de-loop, air pocketed, goofy routing path, I am considering tossing my steel WR line and replacing w/ a CRF routed line.

I still have the headlight (I ride the bike on the road as well...) The line I have is a good length, so I don't have any problems with that aspect of it - I suppose it depends on the manufacturer... mine was a Goodridge one... overall length is 1380mm (54" (4' 6") long...)
The line is a much nicer feel, I think mostly because it is a braided stainless and Kevlar construction, so it can't really expand and all the pressure ends up going to the caliper... The shorter routing does help in the feel a bit, but the routing has two other main benefits,,, less to get snagged up; and easier to bleed, either up or down...
