Someone posted a website that would build braided brake lines. Does anyone happen to know? The rear needs a banjo at the caliper and threaded on the other end to thread into the brake light switch. I know I can delete the stock switch and run a switched bolt but would prefer just to swap in a braided line.

I think Goodridge also has custom lines available, but those Venhill look pretty awesome, and looks like easier to order in a custom configuration.

The venhill are very nice and super easy no worries about angles and pitches they pivot 360

On the venhill link, what are the bolt size x pitch? I would think standard but they are nissin calipers. There also doesnít seem to be an option not to banjo both ends. May have to message them about that.

They have all the different pitch and tgread banjo options and yes its both ends. When you build the line on the site you individually pick which ends you want for each

If you know you're remaking yours, it might not hurt to just pull the cable off while it's still cold out to check the bolts yourself. When I replaced the front hose on my S1, I was surprised to see the two banjo bolts had different thread pitches. Not sure if they were supposed to be that way, or if someone did something stupid in the past.

The guys at Venhill are great snd really helped me with all my cables and hoses. Awesome to deal with. I havenow used their brake and throttle cables on 4 bikes.
They will tell you which banjo bolts you need etc

Never seen button head banjo bolts before, they really finish off those cables nicely.

I bought one of these for the 1125 and I really like it.

If you're in a pinch, most NAPA auto parts stores will make custom hydraulic lines, including brake lines.
