Is there an aftermarket rear brake line for 05 wr450?

7 posts in this topic

:) I unknowingly got wrapped up in some barbed wire around rear caliper and brake line. The brakes worked fine after removing barbed wire for 2-3 rides. Then this weekend in Ocotillo Wells, nothing. The brake pedal has no resistance and piston does not move. It does not appear to be losing fluid, although brake line has visible tears near caliper. I cannot tell how deep they are or if air is entering system. I dissasembled the caliper and everything looked ok. I went to order a new brake line and was told all that is availabe was OEM. So my question is: is there an aftermarket (i.e. fastline, etc..) or will a yz brakeline work? AND.... Am I checking everything I should be? Thanks!

03,04 and 05 should be the same rear brake line kit. :D

Ride engineering has the best kits on the market:

I have that braided rear line on my '04 from RE (through the TT Store), nice stuff. :)

Now only if I could find the time to install the LightSpeed '05 style front line & guards, seal savers & TrailTech comp. I bought for my baby. :):p
