Re: Brakes

Spiegler lines come in a kit. Look up your year and model. Everything you need is in that kit.

Re: Brakes

Spend an hour one evening, do a search on this forum under spiegler and brakes etc.. You will find tones of information.
This might help too: http://www.i-bmw.com/showthread.php?t=38778
You will need to do a complete bleed also.

But there is a lot more information and details out there. It really helps if you list the year of your bike when asking technical questions. Some information is dependent on that. Your off to a good start. Your old lines are famous for failing any time afte 8 or 10 years. No fun having a caliper lock up out on the road. Follow the instructions, new crush washers for the banjo fittings and use a torque wrench every where possible.
