Re: Sprung a leak
Get a good look at how the line is routed from the front brake reservoir to the first union. There is an L-bracket close to the reservoir and the line goes under the bracket. If the line is on top of the bracket, the upper handle bar cover will not install properly.
I also had to loosen the clamp for the front brake reservoir and rotate the reservoir/turn signal switch assembly to loosen the banjo fitting. Before loosening the clamp, mark it and the handlebar so you can get the assembly clocked at the same spot as before.
The t-block for the front brake lines was a little long for the bracket. I bent the tab out some on the mounting bracket so the nut could hold the 5-block fast. I assembled the lines to the t-block first, installed the t-block on the stud, then tightened down all the lines.
The banjo fitting on the line from the rear master cylinder to the hard line forward of the rear shock's forward mount bolt is a bear; getting the line, banjo fitting, and gaskets to cooperate is fun. Patience pays off. I removed the master cylinder and then replaced the bottom of the line/banjo fitting. After getting the master cylinder bolts snugged down, actuate the brake lever and listen for the switches to make sure they actuate.
There are just enough crush washers to do the job; don't lose one. There is a plastic rod that is used to rotate the lines fittings; instructions call to use the hose clamps in a vise. A rag wrapped around the line, held with channel locks, worked as the vise for me.
Kinda long winded. Hope this helps.
