Guys,
I am doing my bars and I think I might be losing my mind or correct and I need help on a ruling.

I am putto g on 14" apes on my 13 RGC. With ABS. When I ordered the replacement front brake line, it came as a short 22" cable. I looked in the manual and it shows a line all the way back to the ABS module behind the bag on the right. If that I'd true, then the line is over 60" long. Or is there a block or hookup somewhere that I am missing? I did a search on a few sites and they all show the short cable. Any help?

Your thoughts are correct and it sounds like they definitely gave you the wrong line. There should be nothing between the M/C and the ABS module.

So no connection point? No place that the line disconnects from? The line is one solid peice?

I will thanks!! The place I bought my stuff from buys from Drag Specialties. I might call them to get the correct part #, then tell the place the # so I get the correct part. Then on to the clutch fitting g or not. I think short but the guy said it Wil reach. I have my doubts...wish me luck all!!!

Guys,
Any way to change the one without pulling off the tank? I am thinking no. I have a full tank and going to be heavy.

TripleJ's right. That brake line runs through some tabs on the side of the wire tunnel, under the tank.

A full tank's not tremendously heavy maybe 40-45lbs. It's manageable. If it bugs you, you can always siphon some out.

Trust me, I wouldn't steer you wrong. :)
