rear brake line change: 99s and 2000s

i'm one of the exclusive club of folks that has burst the front brake line above the junction during a bleed. ;-)

given the timing of my event close to a trip, i passed on replacing the rear line - especially after a peek at my shop manual showed the rear subframe of the bike being removed to access it.

(really - go look!)

had anyone here changed the rear line on a ABS-II bike - 99/2000 - and been able to change out the rear line without access to the shop crane that the factory manual calls for?

IMWTK ;-)

If it is just the flex line you are changing you don't have to remove the rear sub frame. You may have to if it is the hard line you want to replace.
