I need some clarity and advice. I have just put on a pair of ROX risers. They are nicely made with quite a bit of flexibility in positioning. But but but...I need a longer front brake line to take advantage of this flexibility. The local BMW dealer told me who they get brake lines from. No problem there. My uncertainty is can I replace this line myself?
The bike is a 2009 r1200r. The Haynes manuel says if you have ABS don't even think about doing anything yourself. The JVB DVD shows flushing an ABS system to be straight forward. The DIY/Tech Library shows a simpler flushing. I do not know where I stand with this differing info and replacing that brake line. It is said never let the fluid empty from the reserve without explaining why. This is what will happen if I take that brake line out. Maybe then I need to bleed the master cylinder as well. I'm thrashing in the dark here and would greatly appreciate some direction and info.
Thanks to a great bunch and all this accumulative knowledge!
