Hydraulic lines replacement

Anyone have a video on replacing the brake and clutch lines on 15+ road glide? I did the cables and brake line on my 06 but I'm a little intimidated on this bike. With the splits and ABS

No video for you. I replaced mine and wasn't that hard. Took it to dealer to get it bled out right. They do an ABS bleed through the computer.

No video but I did it on my 11 and its not that hard. I used a Mityvac to pull the new brake fluid thru the
lines from the brake reservoir to the calipers.

Hill Country Customs has a Video on there site. They push the fluid/air up from the bleeder to the master cylinder.. No dealer needed!!

I have done that. If you have ABS, you need to bleed the brakes then let dealer do an ABS bleed.

This is what I was thinking. I'm installing a FM 107 and heads at the moment so I'd like to change the lines out while it's all apart. I have to take it in to Dyno when I'm done so figure I'll just have them bleed them while it's there

Well you're wrong . Trust me I know how to bleed brakes. After bleeding the abs brakes, still not stopping proper. Let dealer do a bleed through their computer/digital tech brakes now work the way they should. Thank you for your irrelevant information. BTW the abs bleed is not an actual brake bleed like one would imagine.
