Black rear brake line clips - ???

Hey guys... I can't stand my white rear brake line clips, especially now with the black swingarm.

I know I could dye mine, or paint them... But I would rather have some black molded Honda parts...

Anyone know of a part number that swaps over from another bike?



Thanks!
James

You can go to an auto parts or your local MC shop and pick up some generic brake line retainers...

Ace hardware has things like this that will probably work:

Nylon Cable Clamps

Anyone know of another Honda model that uses black brake line clips that we can retrofit?

James,
This does not directly address your question, but what about taking your stock clips and using a fine wire as a hold, dip them in the black liquid plastic or "Dip It"? A couple of coats should do? Just a thought.

Plastic dip tool coating also comes in an Aerosol .. set those clamps down on a piece of card board and they could be black in 30 sec, dry to the touch in a few hours.

Hondas that have a black swing arm..

2003 CRB600F4.. but the clamps mount from the side.

2007 CBR1000R looks like it might work though

Are you referring to part #2? I think that is a metal clamp?

And black

Which i thought was the point of this exercise lol

Point is...... go walk around a bunch of Honda's , find the ones with black swing arms, that route the brake line on top, and then order two clamps...

Or Plastic Dip the ones you have

Those may work i spose. They just an olive oxide zinc plated steel.

I dunno why they use those instead of plastic.

I want black, but i was hoping for the same look as original, which is why i mentioned a molded part, which refers to plastic

I'm not putting any band clamps from ace hardware on my sportbike, sorry... If it were a mil-spec equipment rack that would be different...

Sport-touring bike.

You could color all the things you want with a black permanent marker while they're on the bike. Saves a lot of time.

Or make one out of black twist ties and just be careful when you're bolting it down. Then it's metal and you don't have to worry about inferior ace hardware plastic failing.

Or use some black epoxy for a clean efficient no fastener approach!

I hold together my bike with yellow duct tape and if that's good enough for me it's damn well good enough for all you prissy pants types who are worried about bogus things like "attention to detail" and "safety"

What ever works for you..

Oh, and molded is a process, not specific to just plastic.... So if'n you wanted plastic.. perhaps say that.

But umm plastic.. ok... well there is
Acetal
Acrylic
HDPE
Nylon
Nylon Glass Filled
Nylon Nylatron GSM
Polycarbonate
Polyetheretherketone
Polyethylene Terephthalate
PTFE
Torlon
UHMW




Ok I get it you want an OEM look, but in black.... Do you have any bike wrecking yards near?

It's actually metal retainer with a rubber grommet inside, much fancier than the stock plastic clips that hold the rubber against a piece of metal and the sharp plastic edges of the stock retainer.



Also just throwing this out there..... If you wanted the "stock look" you should probably get rid of the black swingarm with the 900RR brace on it, neither of those came on the SuperHawk.....

Paint the things black and call it a day. It's not like it's a part that gets a whole lot of abuse. I'm very **** about things to. Don't like to do things the "cheap" or "easy" way. I want it done proper and not looking thrown together. ESPECIALLY with my bike. But it's to tiny of a part to matter. If it was something that got touched a lot then id say find a black clip. But paint it and it will be black for years

Pro Taper Universal Brake Line Guide Kit - Motorcycle Superstore

Pro taper cable guide it looks like.

I just bought the $3 pack of Ace 1/2" cable clamps just to spite all y'all and they work money. Couldn't take a picture because my phone is being a stubborn ***** but the are gen-u-ine Chinese plastic and hold that cable like an overly attached girlfriend in heat.

Seriously, though, they work pretty well. And look pretty nice. But the factory "don't twist me" location hole is open so that has to be dealt with. I'll get a pic this weekend.

6 coats later, plus two inside coats, and they look factory... We'll see how it holds up. The black really offsets the polished stainless bolts




Thanks for another good thread!

Nevermind, these things are balogna. One time use only because if you try to screw them down twice they give up and snap in half. I don't know whose cheap idea these were in the first place, but definitely not worth it.
