Brake lines

#1

Post by 1964 pan » Wed Mar 03, 2010 8:00 am

After many years of running a square swingarm rear disc brake setup I am in the process of putting the round swingarm drum brake back on. I got the steel brake lines from V-Twin. But the middle steel line is not matching up to the tee fitting. It looks like it is bent the wrong way? Does anyone have or know where I can find a good picture of the routing/mounting on the bike of the stock tee/brake line/light switch junction? Thanks.

I found a picture here on our tech base and a couple of stock pans on ebay that helped out. I been messing with this stuff long enough to know that this after market crap has to be "made to fit" by the owner. :roll:

be careful when you tighten up the brake switch and brake lines to Tiawan Teds T fitting that the bracket to the frame doesn`t brake off.

The rear brake line I bought from V twin was one of the better pieces I got from them. I did route it through the footboard bracket ( knock out in the bracket itself)to get to inside the frame tubes and didn't even have to bend the pipe to get everything to line up. I bought mine about 7 years ago, so things may have changed.
