Russell SS Brake Line Install Troub

Here is what I ordered from DennisKirk.com http://www.denniskirk.com/jsp/produc...Id=&mmyId=2028

On the box it says 98 vtr1000f Frt brk Ln Part No: 09362


Heres the Bike. There is a hardline junction where the lines split off to the calipers. How does the Russell kit replace that? Im a little stumped here. Thanks

you lose all of that junction box (not a bad thing) and you use the double banjo bolt at the MC and run two separate lines - one to each caliper. The longer goes to the left caliper. The only issue is bleeding. once you get it all hooked up you will have to bleed it at the banjo bolt early to remove the air. very simple to do but will be necessary.

THANKS. Figured it out finally lol. The banjo bolt is where it attaches to the reservoir? Is this like a car where I top off the reservoir then undo the bleed screws on the calipers?

The banjo bolts is where it attaches to the master cylinder and the calipers. Yes you do bleed from the screws on the calipers but you should also pump the system up and slightly loosen the banjo bolt at the master to make sure there is no air bubble trapped at the top of the system.
