I used some cheap clamps from NAPA, buttonhead allen bolts and Nylock nuts.
Drilled holes in the fork guards and used the clamps as brake line guides. I put the buttonhead towards the forks so there isn't anything to hang or scratch the forks (there's plenty of clearance, but just in case) and used a Nylock nut so it won't vibrate loose.
I also use the KTM carbon fork guards to keep the brake lines from rubbing directly on the aluminum forks.
btw: these are "Adv S" brake lines since I've done a full ABS removal.

do you guys gave similar problems? my brake hoses damage forks..

Have you thought about any brake hose guides here?
If you guys have the brakehoses between the fork legs, does it take damage as well?

maybe a teflon sticker or something?

I put on a pair of WP suspension stickers(mine are clear not carbon fiber look) to minimize that wear.

I also cut a few inches of clear fuel line to slip over the lines at the contact points in case I started noticing wear, haven't had to put them on yet though.

I like it. I've been thinking of what to use to accomplish that exact same thing. Off to NAPA!

How I done it

And when I say "I," you know I mean "my mechanic." It took them a whole afternoon, but it would have taken me a week!

Hope this helps, and more importantly, hope KTM get their act together and make a kit for the 990ADV!

** High Fender Warning **

So, I have had my high fender for a couple years now (about 21,000km) and noticed today considerable wear on the forks from the lines rubbing. Mine are on the inside. I strongly recommend anyone who has done the high fender conversion to check their forks. I will probably put a sticker over and add some silicone to the lines.

I left the brake lines on my 2007 on the inside just as they were with the low fender. They didn't touch the fork tubes before the high fender installation and don't touch the tubes after.

Resurrecting the thread

I'm going back to the brake lines inside/outside debate. I would feel better running the lines outside, but I'm not sure how to do this. I'm a rookie when it comes to wrenching on bikes so hear me out.

Can you just pop the lines off at the brakes, re-route them, then hook them back up? Or do you have to bleed the lines after you remove them?

Also; I don't like the clearance between the rear of the fender and the radiator fins/SW Motech cross-bar no matter how I set up the bushings. Are there any negative side effects of cutting an inch or so off the rear of the fender?

Thanks in advance.

Don't mess with removing the brake lines, remove the entire caliper (2 screws) and re-route.. much easier and no bleeding involved.

I don't see any problem with cutting the fender to make your clearances.

Yea, I guess removing the caliper would be easier, didn't think about that. Thanks for the help Garand. This thread has been a huge help with the high fender mod, especially all your pics. Thanks again!
