Cool Spiegler SS brake lines replacement procedure for Beryl Beemer

Have generated a new thread for this as would be hard to find/search if I just replied to the "Bad Luck" thread.

Sooooo, managed to find the write-up I did for when I changed out the OEM rubber brake lines for the Spiegler units. Note, this was for Beryl Beemer, being a 1999K LT-C.

Anyone, drop me a line, or call on my mobile 0432 462 219 if needing further info.


cheers

I had a local shop fabricate my replacement GATES brand *rubber* lines to BMW and SAE specifications for one third the cost of what the fatherland wants. They fit and work perfectly. I kinda' figure if Gates products are good enough for my aircraft they are good enough for my bike.


I just don't get the fascination with steel braided lines. The only real advantage is abrasion resistance - which is not a factor with LT's. Oh yeah - there's the bling factor too...

Anyway - a NICE write up - you sir are an operator.

G'day Ron,
Being in the land down under, we are somewhat challenged by all the resources you guys have as a "local shop"... We therefore at the odd times have to prop up the $US by ordering stuff from over the pond.

I have still kept my old rubber perished things, (dunno why....maybe I had some idea of refurbishment hahhaha) but there is always the insurance thing that niggles away in the back of my mind.

I did very early on in Beryl's history relocate the fuel filter from inside the tank to under the pillion seat. GREAT for fuel filter changes, took me about 4 minutes, two of which was the removal of the pillion seat, BUT thought about if I had the misfortune of some clown taking my wheels away from under me, and the bike burst into flames, "somebody" would be looking at my fuel piping....so put it back in the tank <groan>

Such is the cost of owning a BMW I suppose..

cheers
