Did you get this installed?
I bit the bullet and took off the rad. Made getting to the 10mm bolt super easy. I put off installing the line extension until I was ready to do a valve check where I would have the bike all apart. I also had the forks off to do a seal change.....seemed like the perfect time to do the brake line!
I can confirm the hard line compression fitting was very tight and required some effort to break it free.

I installed mine in about 30 min.without removing any other part except old line.Now the bleeding was a little longer, but not bad with the banjo bleeder.

hello, i was able to get my line on but as soon as i started bleeding the line it started leaking at the lower fitting. i am assuming i did not install this saucer looking washer, i have 3 washers and one tiny brass thing. does that small brass piece have to go inside between the 2 lower fittings?

hello, i installed my 2' extension line but as soon as i started bleeding the brakes the line was leaking at the lower connection. i did not put a saucer looking seal there. i did receive a small brass piece that i wasn't sure what to do with and 3 washers. (2 of which went to upper connection. my question is does that small brass piece go inside between the lower fitting? I'm not sure what you mean by the saucer looking seal that you mentioned. if you can remember would appreciate your input.

I ended up pulling the radiator to install mine as well. I waited until I had rounded off one of the fittings though, and as such had to order a new hard line to install. Just do it right and remove the things that are in the way, cutting corners will hurt later. (BTW I got the last hard line in the USA according to the dealerships I called to find it)
