Brake Line Installation Tips

Brake Line Installation Tips

When installing your new Galfer brake lines, please be sure to note what type of kit you have purchased. Your options will be as follows: 2-line kit, 3-line kit, OEM kit, GP-Style Kit, or Superbike Kit; also note the type of fittings you have received, since torque specs may vary. Most Galfer kits will come with bike- specific instructions, follow these first and foremost. Please remember that your new Galfer brake lines will more than likely route differently than your stock hoses and will not use the stock rings. Galfer uses the terms “right” and “left” as if you were sitting on the bike. Galfer brake lines have a limited lifetime warranty.

2-LINE KIT

This kit will run two lines from the master cylinder down to each caliper. The lines at the master cylinder will be installed using a double banjo bolt. The right line will be installed on the master cylinder first, followed by the left. The right and left lines will route behind the forks. A clip to attach the lines to the triple tree, will be included in your kit.

3-LINE KIT

This kit will run a single line from the master cylinder down to a t-block or to your proportioning valve, from here it will split into two lines, one to each caliper. The right and left lines will route behind the forks.

OEM KIT

These kits may vary from a 2-line or a 3-line setup. Most of the 3- line OEM kits will be installed using the same concept as the standard 3-line kit. While many 2-line OEM kits will have one line running down from the master cylinder to the right caliper. The other line will route from the right caliper crossing over the fender to the left caliper, use the double banjo bolt to install the lines on the right caliper. With these kits, please note your OEM setup, since they will follow the same routing.

GP-STYLE KIT

This is a 3-line kit, and will be installed using the same concept. The difference between this setup is the right and left lines will be routed in front of the forks, for that “GP” look. A clip for routing purposes, will be included in your kit.

SUPERBIKE KIT

This is a 2-line kit, and will be installed using the same concept. Each line will route behind the forks to the calipers. The lines will be installed at the caliper using a male adapter, for a direct thread set up from the 90° female fitting.
