Can Someone measure the Stock length Rear brake line for me

So i switched my Gen5 to race/track only and removed the ABS setup completely. I ordered a Non-ABS rear brake line from Spiegler and it seems excessively long. From Banjo center to Banjo center I measure about 31 1/4". Can someone measure a stock non abs rear line for me?

My stock non-abs line is 22”. I know this because I worked with Spiegler to build a custom line. I installed Attack rearsets and everyone told me I wouldn’t need a longer brake line but it clearly wasn’t the case. I think the problem was that the Attack rearsets angled the master cylinder forward more than stock which kinked the line coming out of the master. I ended up getting a line that was a little longer and with less angle out of the master, this way I could have access to all of the adjustability of the rearsets. Now, back to Spiegler...while checking with them for the length, the guy quoted me something like 31” which I knew was way too long. He checked and thinks they went from a book of specs to putting the specs into a computer system and perhaps there were some errors. I think yours are in error. I would contact Spiegler customer support, they were really good to work with and my line turned out great. Also consider measuring for a custom line if you have aftermarket rearsets. The cost is about the same.

Awesome.. appreciate the help and recommendations. I sent Spiegler a message the other day but never responded. So I guess I have to call them on Tuesday. Thanks again

Just to clarify... my bike is street/track. If I you remove the rear abs sensor - you will also lose the speed sensor. Is that correct?

thats not an abs sensor. Thats for traction control and speed. but it does use that informaton from that sensor while using the abs.
