Re: stainless brake lines k1200 lt

Kirk made a good video on the line replacement. You should watch it before you start. It isn't difficult.

Hint, do the rear caliper last and use the bleed nipple from there to do the front right ventilation screw thingy and you can also bleed the clutch as it also has a ventilation screw on a secondary hose that comes out on the right side tied under the engine guard. Most people say it was easier than they thought it would be. Depending on your year bike, bleeding may be simply more like a car if you have the ABS II system or require a few more steps if you have the Integral ABS system ( whizzy brakes) with servo assist.
