Lower Cost +2" Brake Line Adapaters

Adding all new stainless braided brake lines may be the best option for many owners. However, for those interested in getting the extra 2" inches at the lowest cost, we now have brake line extension sets in a 2" longer size.

This allows adding two inches of brake line for just the cost of the single longer piece, instead of the whole brake line set.

The parts are being made now and should be available in about a week.

The price will be $55 and part numbers as follows:

2007-11 DL650 ABS with ABS
Part Number: DAT-2

2012 and newer SUZUKI DL 650 V-STROM (ABS)
Part Number: DAT-3


It is not yet clear if a less expensive adapter kit is feasible for the 2004-11 SUZUKI DL 650 V-STROM (non-ABS), 2002-2012 SUZUKI DL 1000 V-STROM. It may be that the full +2" brake line kit makes the most sense for this bike. I will know more Monday.

The full +2 inch kit will be needed for the non-ABS Wee and Vee1. It is expected to be available at the same price as the regular braided line set. ($100 retail, our price $90).

The +2" upper line solution will be available for Wee(ABS), and Glee. Delivery is expected in about 1 week.

Meanwhile I'll keep looking for less expensive alternatives for the community.

Raising your Handlebars

For those needing a couple more inches, you don't need to spend 100 bucks for risers and then more than another hundred bucks on a full set of longer brake brake hoses.

In our quest to lower the cost of motorcycling we evaluated the possibility of manufacturing handlebar risers and those currently available.

To get a 1" rise you only need to spend $20 for risers. PM me if you can't find them. There is information currently available here on Stromtroopers that shows no extension of the brake hose is needed for a simple 1" rise. I know. Pretty cool huh!

If you want to move more than 1" straight up, the Rox risers appear to be the best option. We became a dealer for Rox, but you can see them advertised at 20% off retail here on Stromtroopers (hint - look for the Amazon.com advertisement at the bottom of the page). There is no sense in us carrying them when you can get them that cheaply elsewhere.

You can install a full set of 2" longer stainless steel braided lines (we have them in stock) or use our new option.

Now the really good news. The good people at Galfer made us kits that allow some owners to replace the top line, saving work and money.

As always, feel free to PM me. I'm here about four times a day.

Now the really exciting news. The good people at Galfer made us kits that allow some owners to replace only the parts that need to be longer, not the whole hose system, saving you work, time, and money.

My apologies to those waiting on our DAT-3 +2" top lines (2012+ DL650). Due to a communication error (mine) they were not included in our last order, but have been ordered and are expected within the week.

For everyone else, we have +2 brake line options in stock for all other bikes now and can obtain custom lengths wit a little lead time.

I understand another vendor has been telling people that they can not use a longer top line and must use a complete brake line set to add 2" to the 2012+ DL650 and is charging $269.96 for the privilege. Not only is this not true, but the vendor copied our +2" brake line extensions and therefore knows for a fact that you can. He just chooses to carry the higher profit margin full kit and charge full price.
