rr brake line too long. problem?

my bike came with a galfer braided line someone mistakenly bought for a '08. mines '07.
it's 20" between the banjo bolts. over 1" too long. anything wrong just zip tying the excess? i'd try to sell it but i'm too new
thanks

No problem doing that other than it looking a bit odd depending on how you tie it up. No performance issues though.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

I already have a set of braided lines on my ride. But thanks for trying.

Yeah, my avatar pic is a little misleading. I really need to get a good pic of the new bike up there so there's no confusion. Need to get it up to your area soon to have that done!

Sorry to hear that. Find me a cheap place to live up there and I'll be your buddy!

I had my Galfer lines shortened for $30, the guys are super helpful at Galfer.
if you have the GP lines, (has a t in it), then the routing is different. Goto galferusa.com for installation
