Longer brake lines for '09 DL650

I bought bar risers from my 2009 Wee-Strom, but of course the brake line is too short. D'oh! So I need a longer one to get those bars up. Every time I search, people are sent to SVRacing. Is that the only place? Do I really need to spend $90 on a brake line?

I'd love to always use the best, but money is often tight. Is there anywhere I can find a good line for a bit cheaper?

Thanks for your help all, and sorry if this is an old subject.

I put rox risers on my 09 a couple weeks ago. Had to remove the bolt for the cable holder inside the fairing on the lower clamp and it worked perfectly. Longer cables would be the best solution but mine seems to be doing well.

Can you possibly take a picture of this bolt you speak of? Is the cable super taught?

Awesome, thanks. I have this funky four-way coupler in that spot on mine. My girlfriend thinks it might be an integrated braking system, or part of my ABS. The first owner put a TON of farkles on, so I'm not sure what's stock and what's aftermarket. I may have to take it into a Suzuki dealer (none close) and get them to take a look. I'll post a picture tomorrow.

Ah, mine is a non-abs model. I think I read on the Rox website that the abs version did require a replacement line.

Seems like there were multiple places to find them if memory serves. Have you asked over on stromtrooper?

This is what mine looks like. My finger is touching the part that goes to the brake lever.

On an ABS equipped bike (assuming none linked brakes) you will have the following.

- A SINGLE line will run from the master cylinder to the ABS PUMP. Usually this is accomplished by a flexible line going down to a union then hard lines from the union to the ABS pump.

Front Brakes POST ABS PUMP
- A line will run from the pump to a distribution block at the front on the bike, at some point the line will split to distribute the fluid to both calipers, this can either be with two lines running down to each caliper from the distribution block OR a line can run from one caliper over the top of the front fender in a loop to the other side.

Rear Brakes POST ABS PUMP
- A single line will run from the pump to the caliper

Not being familiar with the ABS on the STROM I don't know for certain if it uses hard lines or flexible to and from the pump. Regardless the overall layout will be the same for all bikes. Now if we are talking linked brakes then just stop reading here and move on, I offer no input in that scenario.

Adventure tech has an extended brake line for ~$45. I'm pretty sure it is the top section only, from the master cylinder to where the brake line splits or connects to the ABS "stuff".
