Has anyone done the CR style brakeline routing on a WR and kept the headlight? :)

I did it, routed the cable behind the numberplate. Did not work too well.

#1. My brakes were still squishy;
#2. The new cable was "kinked" a little from the routing, and it started leaking, so I went back to stock.

Waste of my money, but I think others have had much better luck that I.

What kind of line did you use?I was going to get the rideengineering line that is made for the wr.Was this the one you used?

The ride engineering line is decent. The line has fittings that move around to eliminate the kinks. I have been using one for several months and have had no problems.

Did it help the mushy brakes? Maybe a little. I had much better luck :) changing the stock akebono mastercylinder for a Honda CR model. If the line improved performance 10%, I would be surprised.

I believe that the line I had was manufactured by Fastline, or something very similar to that. FastSOMETHING....

How much $$$$$$ for the Nissan master cylinder...???

I really do miss my Honda's brakes! :)

I bought mine from someone on ebay. I only paid 30.00 or so.

Still, considering the short line was 60.00, the cylinder was a bargain. I had previously rebuilt the Akebono, so I know it was working as well as it could have.
