A friend just bought a new 2011 KLR650 and the rear brake line hangs off the back of the brake in a big loop. It looks like one hell of a brush hook to me. What's up with that?

All of the gen 2 bikes are routed that way. It indeed seems unsafe to me. When I went to an aftermarket stainless line it did away with the big loop.

Don't they know that folks take these bikes off road? :18: My buddy;s already looking at SS brake lines, and we know someone who can do a custom job as well. It'll all be good soon.:35a:

Yea it looks vunerable but I haven't snaged mine. I haven't read of anyone ripping one off. Would be pretty hard to be in a bush far enough to hurt I think and you would have worse problems by then!
