banjo bolt question

Post by chris22indy@att.net » Thu Mar 14, 2019 1:07 pm



Can someone tell me what the length and pitch is for the rear caliper banjo bolt for my GL1100 Standard. Mine started leaking on a 150 mile ride. I have rebuilt the caliper some time/miles ago and this just started. I suspect either the crush washers or the banjo I thought I would replace the whole shebang. I know I should be getting braided lines, but no budget right now. I would like to know what braided lines are suggested for the GL1100 standard.

Thanks in advance

I had similar problem in the past, all I had to do was to turn the washers around.
What happen is they already took a set and will leak when switch around while taking the assembly apart and back together.

Copper crush washers are available at any automotive store. Replace those and you won't need to bother with the banjo bolt - it's not the source of your leak.
