Brake lines

Post by skwyd »



Has anyone converted from the stock differential braking set up to a dedicated front brake lever and rear brake foot lever? If so, did you just use new lines with a "T" splitter, or did you use something else?

Thanks in Advance.

An aspect of the conversion is that the front calipers have different piston sizes. Not sure if that will cause an issue or not....

Just different pad wear rates, same as with the linked system.

Here's the link where we recently discussed this issue: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=66214


I'm selling good clean fresh hay. If you want some that's already passed through the horse, that comes a little cheaper!
