Front Brake Line Install Question

I just order the 2-line Galfer brake line setup and rear line also. I was wondering which line needed to be mounted closest to the master cylinder for the front? I am thinking the right line (sitting on the bike) but I wanted some verification.

The instructions tell you, but if I remember right its short line closest to mc and thats the right side, then longer line to left side. It goes mc, washer, short/right line, washer, longer/left line washer, bolt.

How fast is too fast?

Haha, I like how our answers are dif. Yea, just dry fit them and see how they work then just bolt them up.

I'll check for instructions. I wasn't sure if brake lines actually came with them or not. Worst comes to worst I'll call Brad from Superbike Supply where I ordered them from. He was super helpful when it came time to get these things. Fit checks are always necessary before torquing them down. I appreciate the input and I'll let ya'll know what I find out.

Washer, longer line (clutch side) mounts to master first, washer, shorter line (brake side), washer, double banjo. It doesn't really matter just make sure the shorter line has enough play for suspension travel.
