Is there a way to partially disassemble the right handgrip assembly to allow it to rotate enough to gain access to the banjo bolt? I have replaced all my brake lines with the exception of this one and I cannot figure out how to gain access to this one bolt. To the guy that said he replaced all his lines in three hours - 'you da man' and I am impressed.

I did look it up on the CD (32 72), but it only shows the complete removal along with all electrical connections including, but not limited to, the heated hand grips. My goal it to just rotate it about 90 degrees, remove the old line, replace with the new and rotate back into place. Sure sounds simple.

Thanks

There is a screw underneath the black plastic pop off part near the inboard end (away from the throttle cables). There is a tiny one on the front edge of the mirror hole up top. You should then be able to pull it apart. Once apart there is an allen clamp screw that will allow you to rotate the assembly.The clutch side is bit tougher as you have the radio controls.

I am not sure where the pop off part is but I will look for it when I get home. I installed the Phoenix switch some time ago and pulled that off but then hit a dead end. I also have the RS mirrors that need to come off as it looks like one of the screws is behind that.

Thanks for the response.

Ok I was a bit rusty. The bottom near the front (with rear being the end of the thottle grip) large black phillips head. On the bottom near the nut on the RS mirror a silver colored phillips head and yes in the hole when you remove the RS mirror that tiny phillips head screw. It is a total of three. It should then pull apart.

Lee.... John is correct there are 3 screws to remove the just loosen the allen bolt and twist the break assembly up a lil to get to the banjo bolt.
BTW The first break line install took me 6 or 7 hours by the 3rd one it was down to 3 hours. ;)

Mission accomplished. Thanks for the information. It took me about half an hour to get that line in, most of which time was spent removing and reinstalling the RS mirror (lost the little washer twice) and the Phoenix swith. Since I somehow moved the grip assembly slightly, I then had to readjust (trim) both upper and lower bar covers to fit properly as I was not about to take that thing apart again.

Thanks again. I am still in awe of the knowledge freely shared here.

I guess I should have told you there was a little dot and line on the bar and clamp to re-align the reservoir/grip unit.
