View Full Version : Brake Lines

02-11-2009, 10:35 AM
I am replacing the front and rear brake lines on my ride, but I have come across a slight problem. Where do you measure from and to, to get the correct length. Do you measure the physical cable or cable and banjo or centre of banjo hole to centre of banjo hole?

:confused:Please help:confused:

If you are getting these made up by mail order, I would specify mid banjo hole to mid hole. At the worst, you end up with a hose that is slightly too long. Much better that trying to stretch them, or fail an MOT cos they restrict the bars travel
