Installing braided lines with banjo end
« on: August 20, 2011, 04:41:09 pm »
The answers can be found on the site but figure I localize it to the T&T: brakes.

I'm running dual discs on my 72 750 but this procedure is also relevant if you just want to use a banjo instead of hard lines. Its all straight forward with the exception of removing the flare seat inside the caliper where the OEM hard line installs into.

What I did (also suggested in other posts) was drill the flare seat hole just large enough to screw in an ordinary wood screw. Some use pliers and a hammer but if you want, just leave the piston in the bore (it will mar the piston so I only suggest doing this if you're installing new pistons). Another suggestion is I happen to have a 27mm socket which dropped right in the bore. Proceed to screw and eventually the screw will stop against the piston/socket. Out it comes. I suggest chasing the bleeder holes with a tap (M10x1.25).

Thanks I'm looking to do this on my bike.  Just wondering what is the total length on the lines without the hard line?

Your question is a bit vague, a bit like asking..how long is a piece of string..

I guess now that I am awake I'll try again.  Do you know the total length of all 3 original lines together?
