I'm in the process of finishing the 05 6R master cylinder conversion and I need some help deciding which way to route the brake lines. I noticed yesterday that the lines are for a 05 6RR but I didn't think it would make that much of a difference and they are pretty long.

Thanks for the help.

Option 2

Conventional routing again with brake side line over the fork:

Last option is to sell the lines and get the 6R lines and hope their shorter.:dontknow:

Yea a bit long but ok and no it wouldn't matter 6r or 6rr. Personally i would keep the lines behind the fender if at all possible.
Could the longer one be for the opposite side(usually is the furthest from the MC)

Thats what I thought but I've switched them around and have tried all the different options I can think of and I still get a decent amount of slack. Subsequently that's why I have to run the brake side line around the fork because if I were to run it conventionally the slack would hit the radiator at steering lock or protude past the body work and possibly drag or get cut during a crash.

To me your right side line needs to go behind your fork leg, the left one looks OK, what you need is the line keepers out of the stock fender, they do a good job of keeping your lines routed properly.

Plus one on what BD said, pretty sure the longer line goes to the left side, I am positive thats the way my Gafler superbike lines installed.

I would wrap those lines with plastic tubing and zip ties where the lower triple clamp are. My buddy's GSXR600 leaked because the dealer installed it and it was rubbing on the metal.

Thanks for the help guys I followed your advice and routed the lines conventionally with the longer line going to clutch side caliper and the shorter line to the brake side caliper. I'll probably keep it like this unless you see something that would make the lines unsafe.

what i meant was make sure the banjo's fit as flush as possible to the caliper before mounting them other wise the slightest twist of the line can create problems.

And yes vertically is correct..........i think :wink:
