The top of the lines on my twin Brembo 1983 R65 are starting to abrade after 30 years of movement. So, I happen to like the black stainless braided pipes and winter is coming.... I have a couple of questions about parts which the 'custom' brake line makers seem to want to run away from:
I have a BMW dealer fitted RT fairing (fitted in UK) without storage boxes and vents etc which suits the bike nicely.
RT higher bars (checked the measurements).
Standard R65 brake routing and they go through the moving black plastic shroud under the headlight rather than out the sides like the 80s and 100s that came with factory fairings.
The top line must be slightly longer that standard due to the bars.
I'd like to delete the hard lines on the callipers and the smaller stainless fittings seem to allow that with the bleed nipple next to them.
After several abortive attempts with suppliers who see "early 80's BMW non-standard" and shut the hatches down with orange beacons and sounders going off. I understand thread sizes, I can measure pipes and can look up parts online. I'm just after a bit of guidance before re-inventing the wheel
