    Yep, much better when it is the right length.
    I need to have a shorter one made for my lowered street tracker.
    It just looks wrong when too long... :eek1

    yea i ran the brakeline and speedo cable behind the fork so it will bend like a lot of stock setups. i had it setup the crf routing before where it slided up and down through loops but didnt like the extra line in the way of the dash. i think i even have better brake power now since i replaced the 56 inch line with a 47 inch line.
