Brake lines and monotubes

I tried searching but didn't find the specific answer I'm looking for so I apologize in advance if this has been answered elsewhere.

With -2 monotubes installed, how do te front brake lines sit? I notice that at stock height, there seems to be quite a bit of slack. When the front end is lowered, it would seem there would be an excess of brake line.

Anyone have any insight on this or possible solutions? I know many ppl use te monotubes so I'm sure this is a common issue.

I was looking at buying the magnum shielding lower brake assembly but don't want to if it will be too long.

Thanks in advance.

I have extra slack in mine after the -2 drop. From the calipers to the T block. Isnt really causing any issues though. Guess the only way around it is to have custom lines made up.

Even with the 2" drop, I think the fork tube stops that limit the full extension remain the same. Although rare it is still possible to get maximum extension which would require stock length brake lines.
