Re: another brake line burst
A little off topic, but many don't know that the master cylinders are vented. People who live in humid areas, power wash their bike, wash their bike often, or park outdoors are much more prone to fluid degradation. Now I can't claim to have proof that nasty fluid will kill your pump, but logic says it's probably a big risk factor.
Also, I'm not really convinced that BMW lines are all that bad. Each leak I had was where the flex line was attached to the banjo fitting. Each time the line made a hard turn at the fitting, causing undue stress as the line flexed with the suspension. In other words, poor design.
