Important :

 

  • These instructions are valid for most motorcycles. Nevertheless, if you have any difficulties, we recommend you check your motorcycle maintenance manual or a specialist.
  • Before purging and removing the old circuit, please check the compliance of the kit you received with the original hoses. Hoses lengths, banjos orientation etc.. this would allow you to use your motorbike in case a mistake was made.
  • Put the motorcycle on the centerstand on a flat surface and protect your motorcycle – rims, fairing, cables, etc..- from brake fluid slashes, as it is very corrosive
  • Clean all pieces that will be dismounted, to avoid dirt on your hands, toolings and the new kit.

  • These instructions can be downloaded for printing, to have it with you when you will change your brake line kit.
