H.E.L. Lines
« on: February 19, 2008, 11:13:10 PM »

For all of you who have installed H.E.L. lines, how many lines did your kit include for a full brake (front and rear) set?

I received mine yesterday and I have three lines but it seems I will need 4 lines. I have a 07 GT650 Naked Version.

So far Ive seen I need:

1 line from the front brake master cylinder to a T-shaped coupling in the front fork.
1 line from that coupling to the front left caliper.
1 line from that coupling to the front right caliper.
1 line from the rear master cylinder to the rear caliper.

I'm missing something here? Do thes lines install differently?

Hope u guys can help me out.

From what I have seen with the HEL lines you dont need the T-piece anymore. You run one line to each of your front calipers straight from the master cylinder (there should be a longer bolt that screws into your master cylinder that can accpet 2 brake line ends) - and then you have the single for the rear.

Not sure about the specifics of your kit, but other kits sometimes use one line to the right caliper and then a longer bolt there with a line running to the other side over and behind the fender.

Two separate lines - one to each calliper with the longer bolt    :wink:

Thanks guys, my kit came with no instructions whatsoever so I was wondering. I have two lines of equal length and one shorter, copper washers and 5 bolts if my memory serves me well.

After closer inspection I found one of the bolts to have two holes and longer than the others so I guess GT650R_Chris post might be correct.

Just hope the lines are long enough since I have a naked version, and the handlebar is higher than the clipons.

Thanks for all your input.

If the line are a stretch when you fit them you may have a problem.  Don't forget, as you accelerate the forks are longer than when stationary.  Some slack is needed

Well, my suspicions were true... the lines are just too short!!!!!!  :evil:  :evil:  :evil: I just measured them tonight and there's no way they reach the calipers once conected to the master cylinder or viceversa.

Do you guys think I'll be able to return them? Shall I deal directly with H.E.L?

You should be able to return them.  Did you tell the seller that you had a Comet.  

I had mine made for me.

Newbymick, I sure did! I specified I had a naked GT650, black.

The problem is that my seller was John from Meek's Motorsports (or what used to be Meek's Motorsports). Since they went out of business, I might have to speak directly with H.E.L. So far I sent them an e-mail without any response. Hope to be able to talk to them tomorrow.

Thanks
