Red face HEL Braided Lines

Hi All,

About to fit full set of HEL lines, never done ABS before.

Are there any problems to look out for?

Any tips, info or pictures would be gratefully received :-)

Also has am thinking of a Rizoma reservoir, any one got any pictures of this fitted?

Thanks

Dave

Just started my HELs today.
The rear is a real pig to get at, I ended up removing rear wheel and the shock to gain access.
I am still removing the rear hoses. I started with the back because it is the hardest to do.
The fronts will be a breeze in comparison. Have removed front wheel and fender for access and to avoid fluid spill damage.
I am going to reverse bleed using a syringe to pump through the nipples. Never done it that way before so it will be interesting to see how it goes.
What did you pay for yours?

Thanks for the information.

I paid 100 direct from HEL, ordered them at the MCN show last weekend

Can you not bleed ABS in the conventional way then?

I would have given up on replacing there rear brake line if i had to remove the wheel AND shock. I hardly ever use my rear brake anyways.

i didnt notice the abs till i got some vesrah race brake pads, now i seem to be getting annoyed with how early they come on, and how long it takes for the brakes to re activate once it has interupted. , thinking of disabling it somehow, as ive never had abs before i dont really like the feeling of lack of controll it dishes out any time start getting eager.
can i just pull fuse out?, ive had braided lines before (gsxr1100) gave more precise feel to braking

Either remove the ABS fuse and give up a safety device or bring a good aftermarket radial pump and the bike brakes very well!

I fitted HEL lines to an ABS f model nearly 2 years ago. Don't remember details but wasn't difficult. Removed tank and failings but certainly didn't remove shock or rear wheel.

Add photos of rizomas in place later

You got a good deal, just checked the HEL site and they are 149.99 for a full set.
Yes you can bleed the normal way with ABS, no special instructions in the workshop manual.
Have got the rear lines installed, tried back feeding the fluid but made a mess of it, ended up doing it the normal way.
I found the retaining bolt holes in the plastic blocks quite tight, ran a drill through to ease them out.

You must have very dexterous hands, mine are damaged with arthritis which doesn't help.
I also had to undo the exhaust valve motor bracket to get a bit more wriggle room.
