Changed my brake lines today. I put in a set from Spiegler. They were pretty straight forward to change. As soeone else mentioned, the bracket on the RH fork for the junction block is a tad too narrow for the replacement block. Since it is made of aluminum I just filed off some material from the new block and it fit like a glove.
One thing I didn't see mentioned were the clamps for the rear hose. The hose is too small to be held in them securely. I took some 5/16" fuel hose and cut it to about 1 inch long and slit it up the length. I slipped it over the Spiegler hose and it snapped into the clamps perfectly.
Lots of bleeding later and I had fully functional leak free brake hoses. Also changed the brake pads while I was there.

A problem I ran into is 2001 has ABS and 2002 has ABS INTREGAL. The differance is that
the 01 Banjo fitting at Right Front caliper is 45 degree bend where the 02 & up has a 90
degree bend. Here is Spiegler website for ordering: www.speiglerusa.com
Part # 02 up is S-BMO168 and 98-01 is S-BMO 140. Good Luck & mine fit great!! Phil
