Looks well but don't forget the green stripe and watch out for car drivers; single headlights don't come across as aggressive to them so they pull out more readily.

Thank god for that zorst I got the other day.
The old 1 has peeled at the bracket revealing a hole



the new one doesnt quite line up at that bracket either,
I think its the reason for the hole.



It's not far, but enough to repeat the damage if not sorted. Hopefully I can re drill the hole, if theres enough metal.

After I had fitted the new pipe I 'entertained' the neighbourhood with
Concerto for unbaffled 4into1. rockon rockon rockon rockon

final job for today, (well actually I did this first).
Fit a Reflector for the MOT

I kinda like the up and over look its kinda cool with the changes to the bike but get rid of the slack and put 2 new banjos on.

I was going to say if you bend the hoses over and line up on the calipers and bolt em in you could then remove the calipers and work backwards to bleed them.

anyway good luck with it

Fringe, let me know how much slack is left over if you shorten them, as I'd like a red rear line from the reservoir down

I you can tell me how to get the banjos to seal on to the hoses I'll give it a go.
Thats a good idea for the remainder hose to link the res to mastercyl.
Should have enough to send FBF some and do that meself.
Dont know it the hose will fit coz its quiet thin.

I redid the mess that was wires to the headlamp.
Someone had butchered and spliced in a non standard healamp plug.
All good now tho, just need to wire in the side light and indicators.

The Exhaust needs a modified bracket.
Then the MOT.

I was going to speak to HEL to get a small length made up for the master-res but when i photoshopped it, it looks like too much.

The hose will fit with a bit of manipulation.

Braided lines have outer steel braid, or steel braid coated red in your case, then the inner brake pipe - the braid/outer stops the inner from swelling too.

When you get the new banjos there will be 2 types, 1 with an olive like a normal compression joint you get in B+Q for plumbing etc and another has small tubular insert, on the bottom of the banjo union that goes into the inner , which also has a compression bottom if you like.

First of all cut your hoses to the length you require, use a very fine hacksaw to go through the braid and inner as using cutters can reshape the hose oval and then it's a night mare putting the fittings on.

Then put the banjo lower clamp around the hose the right way up to, so it will screw to the banjo union. Then insert the olive between the braided outer and the inner fluid line, get it at least 4mm down/into the braid and make sure it's nice and even all the way round. Then screw on the union.

Don't fully tighten the union until you have routed the hoses to the master and the calipers, as you want them as straight with where they mount onto the master and calipers as possible without having to twist the hoses into place, attach the banjos loosely to the master and caliper and then tighten down you compression joints on the banjos.

Also, put Dot 5.1 into you rear de-res kit, it wont damage any paintwork as it's synthetic, just make sure you flush every last bit of Dot 4 out of it.

I got mine made up by a hydraulic place.Dirt cheap compared to brake line sellers.Bloke said the materials used were well up to the job probably overkill but he said he couldn't guarantee or give me a receipt as liability issues as not specified for brake lines.Has anyone seen those re-useable ones on ebay sold by the company who supplies venhill?I think they are a lot cheaper too.You have to order your legth,colour and banjo's and like FBF says,they not rocket science to put together.

It Passed, bloody hell, it passed..........The MOT.


after some stuggling with the new headlight, I'd connected it up wrong then blew a fuse sorting it out.
After about 30mins fiddling I was given 5mins to sort it or It'd fail. I got it back together and working 3 mins after he'd failed it! But, he retested straight away n it passed..........with a recommendation for a new front tyre.
BUT iT Passed. woot woot woot woot
