I finished installing Galfer lines and scintered pads on the front of my '09 Wee yesterday. I purchased the set from Blair and got the +2" lines since I have a Protaper ATV Hi handlebar. I also purchased Speedbleeders for the front and back. Everything came in yesterday so with it being the long weekend I'll have to wait for Tuesday for some tech support. So I need some advice from this very experienced group.
First off, the Speedbleeders for the front didn't work - the stock ones are longer. I used part number SB7100S in the stainless steel. My bad since the web site quotes that part number through '08. Has anyone installed Speedbleeders on an '09 with the stock Tokico calipers and do you know the correct part numbers? I also have part number SB8125 for the rear and have not tried that one yet. I managed (with the help of my two daughters) to bleed the lines the old-fashioned and time consuming way with success. Also, I should have purchased the double banjo bleeder with the kit so if you are planning this upgrade, get it. I didn't realized that the lines were stacked at the master cylinder - I thought they would come as an assembly like the stock one. The double banjo bleeder should make bleeding that area a snap and is only $20.
Second, how the heck to I secure the brake lines now? Since the attachment points on the old brake line are all press fit, it doesn't seem like I can re-use them without destroying the old brake line assembly. There are three attachment points: left, right, and at the triple clamp. I left the metal bracket attached on the left side but the grommet is glued to the brake line and probably won't fit the new line anyway. The right side now just has the 8mm bolt and I need to find one a bit shorter to re-attach the fender. And there's nothing on the triple clamp since that bracket is press fit on the old brake line. Has anyone managed to figure out an elegant solution or are your lines just kinda dangling?
I plan on doing the rear brake today. Any gotchas on that?
I've searched this site, ADVrider, and the vendor web sites. I've read through some of the threads on this but haven't seen anything conclusive on securing the lines. Pics would be nice. I think this was a very worthwhile upgrade but I'm concerned about making sure the lines are properly secured. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
