    looks to me like you ordered the lines a bit too long. I've been thinking about doing this and eliminating the cross over. Its a basic 3 line kit and is often done on many sport bikes that come with the bypass line like ours. For race or track use people go to a 3 line kit to get better braking feedback from the brakes.

    i did that. the lengths are ok, its the 3rd banjo that is wrong. i think im going to scrap this set up and reorder with only using 2 lines.

    yes i saw your post. But your line set up seems more complicated than i want mine to be. i found one where someone just ran two lines up and attached them right up to the ABS connector.

    Would you then use the long banjo bolt from the LH caliper up the top & vice-versa?

    Yep, that's my plan, just gotta find someone in Oz to make up the lines
    What is the correct length for this 2 line system?

    I believe 40inches. but that all changes depending on how you want to guide the lines up.

    This is my set up for the lights (HID kit in original housing and Rigid ind Dualy led lights) and the WS.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Light is amazing! I don't have great nocturnal vision and this helps a lot!<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    WS: great and adjustable. With WS all the way up I can do 120kph with open visor without a problem (6.2 with 34' inseam). With WS all the way down it is great for off road.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Cheers and keep us posted!<o:p></o:p>

    Great fairing! I'm really impressed! Used to have touratech touring WS and it just put the air across my face and a very loud roar!

    Also very happy with the Rigid Led lights!!!

    Cheers,

    They have a white version that would go great with your bike!

    The inside has a nice control panel for switches and gps

    If I remember correctly you plan to go o central America, give me a cal when going through Mexico and we could do a
    Ride together

    Cheers
