Brake Line reinstall.

Ok this has been running threw my mind ever sense I installed them. I am adding pictures as well.

Ok if I take my lines off do I need to use new washers or can I just use the ones that are on it now? Also, can I take the the ends off and replace them with ones that have a great degree of angle. As you can see, when the bars are all the way to the left it pushes the lines against the ram air thing.

I would start by zip tying the lines together (side by side) up by the master. They look tangled. I would use new washers if supplied. If not, you don't really have a choice. You need tools to replace the fittings if you wanted to get a better angled one on there. They're not the same angle as the old ones? you might have 'em installed upside down or something.

It looks like the outer one is installed wrong. it looks like the angle is out towards your ram air intake. Do a 180 w/ the fitting so the angle is pointed towards the end of the clip on.

I do know lines have fittings positioned a certain way at each end (good ones). Maybe the one at your caliper have a better angle or something.

I would use the provided washers... its good to replace them cause they are what seals that stuff closed. as far as it hitting... mine did that... I just turned em down more and was carefull. The only time yours is going to be all the way over is parking or riding at very low speeds....
