    I think you'd be better off having a shop make you up the two lines
    you'll need. They can make the perfect length your bike needs, for the
    way you have it set up ( higher bars, taller bar risers, etc.)
    Yes you will need a double banjo.

    Be sure to spend some time routing the lines around the clutch and other wires. On the low fender bikes when the suspension is compressed the brake line flex is below the brake line bracket/junction at the lower triple clamp. With the high fender and two lines the lines will flex/ extend up above the handle bars. Potentially rubbing or hanging up on wires, cables or brackets, GPS etc.

    are you thinking of the 950 setup?
    The '07 & '08 990S model brakeline setup is basically the same as the standard ABS model around the low fender/high fender area.

    I can't argue with going the custom route, it's likely cheaper., and maybe better for some setups
    I picked the lazier way. Point and click.

    An ABS defeat switch in the rear sending sensor shuts off the ABS instantly. If left in the open position, the default is no ABS the next time you start the motor. Put the switch where it can be easily reached with your left or right thumb. Works for a lot of us.

    On the road! Finally!
    For me I like the idea of it on the front, but not the back. That said on my '11 you have to nail the brakes pretty hard for it to activate.
