Re: Advice On Brake Line Replacement

I didn't think to pull the instrument cluster, in fact, I don't know how. I pulled the fairing, I will have to look at that before I reinstall it. PO disconnected the radio and made a hook up for his iPod. I would like to have the radio. Still have to finish the rear brake line.
