    Hel Brake Lines

    Hey guys,

    Some of you know i've had a few issues with my Hel race lines, particularly with the fact that the lines foul the fuel tank. I went to Hatfields to get them to take a look and Adam pointed out that at full lock the double banjo bolt will scratch my tank if the lines weren't fouling the tank.

    So I phoned B&C today and Hel are kindly sending me a new kit out. But it will be a line to the right caliper and then a line from there to the left caliper. Twin race lines on the CB seems to be a no go.

    I can't comment on Goodridge but I wil say stay away from Hel unless you go for the setup I am now getting.

    Re: Hel Brake Lines

    I've had Hel lines fitted for the last 18 months, no problem with the banjo hitting the tank, and the lines are nowhere near the tank if you run them behind the clocks like the original, single line. I guess it depends how you've got the bars positioned, I angled mine forwards as soon as I got the bike!

    My only negative comment about the Hel lines is that they're a bit too long and they cross over between the bottom yoke and the mudguard.

    I've showed Jon.f so he can vouch for me that I am not bonkers. Perhaps they sent me the wrong kit. Hel have sent me a new free of charge kit anyways

    Re: Hel Brake Lines

    Steve, are yours twin race lines?

    If I were to move the bars then I'd have to lean over the tank and stretch to reach them. As it is I already stretch my arms right out (I'm small rememeber LOL)

    I have a feeling that perhaps they sent me the wrong kit?

    Nevermind, this new over the mudgaurd one is being fitted over the next few days

    Intrestingly my mate has a set of these on his CB and has no issues with them so perhaps your kit was wrong
