Cool Brake line obsession during pre-cabin fever. - February 5, 2010, 01:18 PM

What do you do when they are calling for more than two feet of snow? Garage time I say.

I never liked the extra slack I had in my front brake line.


The stop on the master cylinder created a weird angle as well.




A few weeks ago I ordered up a shorter line (Goodridge ebony stainless). As the snow fell I removed a portion of the stop, got out the super fine file and installed the new line.


Done!

Nunya, is your steering damper mounted to the valve cover?!?

do you notice any slop in the initial turn before the pressure builds or is it pretty nuetral. Cool location. What bike is it off of? Did you try a shorter one?

on the internet you can be anyone you want, it's strange that so many people choose to be so stupid

looks like its mounted to the frame and to the lower triple, the bar u see by the valve cover is the extra stickout of of the damper as it compresses

Ed, be sure that's not too short.
Turn the bars so it's shortest then lift the bars to extend the forks.
That makes sure it isn't too tight under acceleration when the forks extend..

(Actually, I'm sure you did all that. Just wanted to post it for anyone else considering the same thing.)

Threaded bung, coped and welded to frame. 43mm clamp on fork tube. Took lots of trial and error to avoid brake lines and such.

Sweet as the snow fell, I pulled the penske double, vortex rearsets, and steering damper. Finally found the time to pull stuff off.
