Who's got Galfer Brakelines

I bought a set of Galfer steel braided brakelines and I'm installing them right now as we speak. I know the Galfers don't follow the piggy back configuration the stock lines do, but.................... when I went to use the long bolt to secure the the fittings to the m/c it was to long(DAMNIT!!!!!). Am I gonna have to order a specific bolt from Galfer?

PLEASE HELP.........RUNNIN OUTTA DAYLIGHT!!!!!

I've used Galfer for the longest time but I've also used Goodridge and Freno Tubo and recently ran into a major problem on the 10 it developed a small pin hole in one of my front lines (sbk lines). And then yesterday installing a rear line on the 6 the line is probably 2 inches too short. I can install it but it's waaaay too tight for my rear set configuration. I'm going to contact Galfer about the front sbk line and I've got a bunch of spare lines around here from other bikes I'll swap for the rear line. Never had a problem with them until now so if you are getting the rear line kit for the 07 6 and you are using aftermarket rear sets you may have an issue.
