What brake lines for zx-6/zx-14 MC swap?

Since the location of the banjo bolt is slightly different I figured I'd ask before I end up with the wrong thing. Do you guys just get steel lines for zx-6 or later year zx-10? Or do the 05 fit just fine? Seems like the end of the line will have to be bent at an angle so that it will point down...

The stock lines will fit just fine. The angle isn't that sharp.

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

but if youre going to the trouble of swapping master cylinders, you might as well put braided lines on too

Get the lines for your bike. Only the length is slightly different between models. It has nothing to do with the connection at the banjo bolts. Those are all standard. If you haven't swapped calipers, then the length will be for the Gen 1.

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

Doesn't really matter. The banjo is at the top of the caliper on the Nissins, which will add a little service loop to the lines. You should still get the Gen 1 lines so you know you have enough length in them.

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

The other option is mock up the lines using your stock ones to test length with the different M/C and calipers and then contact HEL and they will make you lines to whatever length you want with whatever bend on the banjo you want.
