Wasp brake hoses

Postby brunocrossley » Sat Aug 04, 2018 9:33 pm

I’m currently replacing my K100RS front end with a Wasp leading link setup. I’ve got the forks bolted on, but need to rework the brake hydraulics. I’d like to fit one piece flexible hoses to go from the splitter under the bottom yoke all the way to the caliper bodies. (At the moment there’s a short hard line from the caliper)
Can I use banjo bolts into the caliper bodies? What is the proper name for the fitting that screws to the splitter under the yoke? I’m trying to work out what to ask for!

Ta, Mark

Pop along to your local hydraulic hose place and see if they can help you. Most will have the parts to sort you out or will know were to get them.
