Quick question

Are the front brake lines routed in front of the fork or behind? I'm changing out my brake lines and I routed them in front as I think the stock lines were. But now I'm doubting myself.

Front, and it's one line unless an aftermarket set with a line from the master cylinder to each caliper is used.


Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

ah yes, that holder is on the front of the forks. i have an aftermarket SS kit they still go in the front at the top, but the lines pass down and move to the back of the fork near the caliper.

I wasn't thinking about the lower runs. They are behind in every situation. Some people adding bar risers will move the top line from front to back to get them to fit.

Ok so the way I have it run is that its in front of the tripple tree, in front of the lower fork clamp, and then goes under the lower fork clamp to either caliper. Does this sound right you you guys?

That is the way the original is routed, in front of both triple clamps and curving back under the lower clamp

Thanks GW, I was just having a spastic moment. I always plan on paying more attention before I start a project than I never do.
