Install the brake line improvement at the same time you do the bar riser.
That way, you're not in there twice.
For those that dont know this, the "olive" part thingie mentioned in a couple posts up, is a metal "doughnut" seal, and looks very similar to a compression type water seal fitting. But, it's miniscule. the size of a penny nail head.
*That* thing gave me fits during brake line reinstall. There's no way to tell if it's compressing sideways during the mash-up. You turn and pray...
I really, really, wanted bar risers, and I needed a longer brake line to get that.
So, yes, it's very tight in there reinstalling these brake line parts, and can be done without moving the rads or gas tank, but that "olive" part makes me to never want to go in there again.
