That's what you need to replace the entire brake line system on the 2012 DL650. It seems suzy hard plumbed the system for the new model. Now you cant just get an upper brake line that's 2" longer than stock to accommodate up and back risers. A "kit" is available (parts only) from a vendor for $249.00 then add 3-4 hrs labor.

Thanks, Mo

I don't understand. You can't just replace the "hard plumbing" with a traditional braided steel line like you would otherwise? Do your calipers and levers not use regular fittings?

(Not being sarcastic, I really don't know.)
