Difference between street bike and dirt bike brake lines?

Post  MA$TER_E on Thu Jan 03, 2013 9:20 pm

I've put the CRF front end on my XR and that's great, but with the bar risers and high contour bars the brake line is getting kind of short. It has got to run in behind the front plate by the headlight and electrical I don't like that.

So I was going to order a longer universal stainless brake line but got to wondering if there's a difference between "dirtbike" and "streetbike" brake lines? Other than the vinyl covering for the clamps I'm really not seeing a difference.

I agree there the same....just the street bikes will probably have a large range of pretty colours (colors) Very Happy
...end of the day the job they do is identicle.

nice thanks for the feedback!

I was looking at one of these in the length I need. I've got to do some measuring and looking but if the straight fittings will work on the master and caliper it'll be hard to beat a custom length stainless brake line for only $36 bucks.

Venhill do some with a swivel nut at each end so you can rotate to the right direction, I know from experience the HEL brake lines which appear to have fixed banjo's also can be turned without any worries.
