Thank you for the reply Rybo
That's exactly the plan i want to do. Was there any specific kit you were able to find for the brake lines? or did you have them custom made?
Do you know the specs on the banjo size/thread that our bikes use?
I'm thinking i may try something else in the mean time too... Being that that the ABS unit is higher than all of the rear brake components, i'm sure the air is just staying there. So i'm think i may able to crack open the banjo bolt at the ABS unit, push some fluid/air from there and close. Since there are 2 lines, i'm gonna have to figure out a way to force fluid up from the caliper too...
it's just an idea.
as for the linkage slack, i'm pretty sure tha's not the problem. everything is and was fine until the line from reservoir had a tear in it i didn't know about. SO i was basically pumping air from cylinder, right up into the ABS unit. The bike is fine, until it gets hot. THat expanding air is make my brake burn up. It had so much pressure, there was fluid leaking out of the caliper... Once it's cooled, or at the start of any ride, everything is normal.
