Atv high bar and steel brake line installation, any tips?

I've got a set of bars and a new double front brake line at home waiting to be installed. Any tips? The total package includes a 2" Rox riser, the high bars, and the new brake lines. Is there an order of operation that makes the most sense? Should I bleed and install the brakes while they are still on the old bars? What do you guys think? I'm trying to keep this to a minimum debacle.

I'd install with the new bars and risers to get the brake line fittings all in the right location. I know there is is a tabs on the master cylinder the banjo fitting sits against as a stop, but still.

I didn't

I didn't do the brake lines myself, but I did the ATV's bars and riser.

I would recommend to get the brake lines first and then the other 2. Also cut all the zip tides



Good luck

Got it squared away, now I'm just trying to get slack on all the cables.
