Are you considering these ones : ?

They look like the same as these (credits LostRider) :

If so, I'm interested too, as I want to mount them on my 2004 F650GS with ABS and have the same question about the brake line+risers..

I'm pretty sure you need the longer brake line for the ABS models (and the G650GS all have it), you might not need it if you don't have the ABS, because the brake line goes directly to the front brake...
