    So... which fork guard has the brake line clamp on both sides? It doesn't look like the SX85 has that.

    I don't think any of them do honestly. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

    From the pictures posted, it appears someone figured it out.

    From what I gather the pictures show where folks have either attached a holder removed from another fork protector(glue etc) and/or bolted the "cap" that can be bought through the fork protector without the "base". I would love to hear from someone who has done it as I would certainly buy fork protectors with the guides on both sides if someone can provide some insight.

    Anybody done this on a 950 with bar risers?
    I have an '04 with 2 inch ROX risers on it.
    PA do you think the break lines you've listed would still work? :ear
    1 60013012300 Front Brake Line
    Thanks for the help!

    I have a 2005.5 (shortest) 950 with a 265mm suspension upgrade & high fender - for this I have the extra brake line from the TT high fender kit. I also have a 2" RallyConnex riser. This is a total of 4.2" rise from the stock handlebar height - compared to the calipper mount.

    With the TT brake line going down the left, and the stock (non-S) line going by the right fork leg, it's a tight fit, but it works.

    I also done the high fender conversion on mine, and just because it looks lame with the standard fender!
