hey guys we get a lot of questions about

00:02

00:04

this video for some helpful tips alright

00:07

guys we're gonna walk you through our

00:08

custom line builder sheet for a single

00:11

line kit with a stiffer so you're gonna

00:14

pull up the gal for usa.com page and

00:16

you're gonna click the far left tab

00:18

where it says products on the fifth line

00:21

down is gonna be your custom line

00:23

builder let's click on that first and

00:26

foremost we highly recommend watching

00:27

our video on how to measure break line

00:29

so it'll make this a little bit easier

00:31

for you guys we're gonna scroll all the

00:32

way down and click the very first

00:34

picture of a break line once you click

00:40

that it'll bring up a PDF file of all

00:42

the lines colors and fittings that we

00:44

offer for most standard lines you'll

00:46

scroll down and review the fittings see

00:48

which ones you'll need for your

00:49

particular application and as you go

00:51

through your application you'll enter

00:53

your bike information let's plug in a

00:57

Suzuki we're going to plug in the

01:00

general information for our motorcycle

01:02

and then after we plug in our

01:04

information then we're going to choose

01:06

our line style

01:20

you've got a drop-down menu for that for

01:22

example we're using an O six rm250 this

01:25

bike would use a single line front with

01:27

a stiffer if you have a golfer part

01:33

number now's the time to use it

01:34

for example if you're lengthening an

01:36

existing line this will tell us all of

01:39

the fittings and hardware that's

01:40

required to install this complete line

01:42

otherwise if you're creating a brand new

01:45

line kit go ahead and leave that blank

01:47

now you're going to scroll down some

01:49

more and you'll see all the brake line

01:52

styles we've got a single single width

01:54

stiffener dual three line crimped and a

01:56

three line

01:59

from there you're going to come down to

02:01

line a B and C since this is a single

02:04

line with a stiffener all we are going

02:06

to do is line a and here we'll enter our

02:08

length to get the overall length of your

02:10

brake line kit you're going to want to

02:12

measure from the center of the banjo to

02:14

the center of the banjo on the opposite

02:15

end we really recommend removing your

02:19

brake lines laying them out flat and

02:21

measuring them from banjo to banjo if

02:23

you need some help on this check out our

02:26

brake line measuring video we're going

02:28

to need fitting number one so we'll

02:31

scroll back up and look to determine

02:32

which fitting will be best for our

02:34

application

02:39

I'm gonna choose addy 1120 which is a 20

02:43

degree fitting then you'll drop down the

02:48

menu and look for that same part number

02:49

and plug it in now for the caliper side

02:58

we're gonna come back up and look at

02:59

what fittings we will want to use we'll

03:01

scroll back up I'm going to pick a D

03:04

1144 the caliper which is a 12 degree

03:06

fitting

03:15

then we're gonna pick out our line color

03:17

if you're unsure of what colors we have

03:18

there at the top of this page don't

03:22

forget there is no extra charge for

03:24

colored lines unless you choose platinum

03:25

platinum will be the only color with an

03:28

additional charge and a gal for us a

03:30

sales rep can let you know what that

03:31

would be so now we're gonna pick our

03:33

line let's go with gold then we're gonna

03:42

pick our fitting colors you can see the

03:44

fitting colors at the top of the PDF as

03:46

well we'll have gold silver red blue and

03:49

black for this let's pick a black

03:52

fitting your bolt color will be the same

03:57

as your fitting color so we're gonna go

04:00

with black now we're gonna look at the

04:02

stiffener a stiffener goes over your

04:04

brake line so that when your forks

04:06

compress your brake line does not flex

04:08

on our sheet stiffener l n stands for

04:11

stiffener length most your bikes are

04:14

going to need a stiffener length we're

04:16

going to plug in 10 inches for our sheet

04:18

now stiffener PS n stands for stiffener

04:21

positioning that measurement will be

04:23

from the lower caliper banjo fitting to

04:26

the bottom of the stiffener

04:30

we'll plug in 12 inches for that heat

04:36

shrink designates what goes over the

04:37

crimp caps at the very top you'll see

04:39

here that we've got gold with no heat

04:41

shrink we have platinum with no heat

04:43

shrink and then we have the colored

04:45

lines with black heat shrink black heat

04:47

shrink will cover the black switch

04:49

fitting that'll make it look nice and

04:50

help keep it clean but it is not

04:52

required if you don't need it you can

04:55

just leave this space blank or enter in

04:57

not needed we're gonna plug in black

05:00

heat shrink for our Suzuki for a 2006

05:04

Suzuki rm250 we'll also have to figure

05:07

out what kind of bolts we will need for

05:08

our banjo bolts there are two common

05:11

bolt types a 10 by 1.0 is a fine thread

05:14

bolt you typically see these on european

05:17

bikes the other common bolt type is a 10

05:19

by 1 2 5 this is a coarse thread bolt

05:22

these are usually on your Japanese bikes

05:25

you can find 8a and 8b right here on the

05:28

sheet most of Zhu keys use an 8a so

05:32

that's what we'll pick

05:36

we'll plug in 8a times 2 if you believe

05:40

you're gonna need clips or grommets to

05:41

install your kit this is where you'll

05:43

want to plug them in if you're going to

05:46

need any type of block for instance we

05:48

have a d1 27 block and a d0 460 block

05:53

these are the two most common blocks

05:55

that we use if you need one of those

05:56

now's the time to enter it

06:03

there's a few options but we're gonna go

06:05

with not needed for now an olive which

06:07

is an Olive inverter will adapt some

06:10

concave fittings it's right here

06:12

d0 for 30 for this particular bike we

06:16

don't use that so we're just gonna leave

06:18

it alone now we're almost done here's a

06:23

06:31

kit shell for us a custom break line

06:34

06:36

business days to produce this here is a

06:38

rush charge this does not expedite your
