Starting to install apex 4" risers while my shoulder recovers from loading the bird onto a bike trailer in january!
I have positioned the clutch side bar first to what might be a good final position, but not going near brake side yet, as its a good comparison for reach at the moment.
i think i might do what Deadman did and take the hoses out to Pirtek who can match and add the extensions i need. He even found they had the splitter block for the brake front calipers. So, off with current brake and clutch lines.
Looking at the clutch line there a few questions.
- How do i get the solid line out out? Maybe just with tank lifted, or does it need to come right off? Do you remove the line mounts along the frame and just feed it along its path?
- it looks like i need to remove the air ram on the left side to access it. Would it be wiser at this point to remove the whole front nose fairing?
- Does the new clutch hose need to be a smaller diameter hosing to fit through where the solid line currently runs, or does a standard hose OD suit?
The white line in pic indicates where I may have to cut screen back to clear master cylinders, judging initially by clutch positioning. And yes, I'm in southern hemisphere, hence I'm upside down. Much easier that way.
