brake hose length question

Can anyone tell me the length of the rear brake line to the caliper on the 929 and the 954? Also is the master cylinder end of the hose a flat banjo or does it have a 90 degree drop down bend to it?

Thanks
Dan

Sorry, I'm at work right now or I would go have a look. Go to the Galfer website and maybe they will have a pic or specifications? G/L

Look on a parts fiche site such as Ron Ayers.

If the bike isn't braking properly, you don't start by rebuilding the engine.

The problem is it's not going on a 929/954 it's going on a 919 with a RC51 rear caliper and the hose attaches to the rear of the RC caliper and to the front of the 919 caliper making the Galfer line I have on the 919 too short so I need to locate a longer one.
Also I've noticed in my searches that some (russell) of the SS brake line companies use a 90 degree drop down fitting on the master cylinder end and that won't work for what I need.

The joys of modifying

Re: brake hose length question

hi, not sure exactly what u want but on a 954 the rear brake hose is 25 & a half inches long (25.5") from master cylinder to rear cylinder banjo centres-lines.
The master cylinder banjo points UP-wards at 45 degrees & IN-board towards the engine - the hose then curves back-wards and down to the caliper.

Re: brake hose length question

The Galfer line on my 954 is 25 3/4 inches from banjo bolt to banjo bolt hole.
