    brake line routing 78 R100S

    Im currently rebuilding the front brakes on my 78 R100S. Calipers are rebuilt, new rotors and pads installed. Thought it all downhill until I installed the rebuilt master cylinder and BMW brand brake lines. I routed the brake line though the rubber grommet mounted on the frame tab. This was the way the previous line was installed, though it was aftermarket. When I tried to connect it to the brake pipe on the slider, there is very little freeplay--instead of running at an arc from the grommet to the pipe, it runs in a straight line. Anyone have a picture of the correct way to route the line?

    Not sure this will help much, but there are some good pictures on this thread but for an R100RS, so final routing to the brakes might be different:
