Brake lines

Installed my Galfer lines and put the line that crosses over to the left side the wrong way. I like the way the lines run up together;cleaner. Does this matter or can I leave it? I want to get the most out of theme, so if I need to, I will switch it.

I had the same issue when I installed my brakelines. While speaking to the Galfer rep, he informed me that configuring the lines like the stock ones were(piggy back) was the wrong set-up. There should be line per caliper.

YES, I KNOW YOUR BIKE IS FAST............ BUT IS IT FAST WITH YOU ON IT!!!!

Depending how aggressive you are on the brakes, street or track. Track you def want one line per caliper meaning a double banjo up top. The cross-over line in the stock setup kind of creates a slight lag and uneven pressure.

The cross-over line is a bugger to bleed ... it will always want to have an air bubble at the top of the loop.


Helibars, MRA screen, Ohlins damper, reversed shift pattern, sorted suspension, braided lines, Michelin Pilot Power, all else stock 'coz it's fast enough!

I have a set of Gaflers im getting ready to install and want to make sure I don't do this but I don't understand the difference.... Don't you just set them up the same as the stock ones?
