This Ride Eng. replacement line will not bend as easily as the stock line that has crimps holding the black plastic stiffener. We use molded rubber boots to keep the stiffener in place. Made with adjustable banjo fittings so every installation is a perfect fit. NOTE: Brake line clamp MX-BLC00-BA or RA requireded for Yamaha direct route application. Brake line clamp RX-BLC00-GN, BA or MB is highly recommended for Kawasaki applications becuase all braided steel lines are narrower than stock. No bracket required for KTM/HUSQ/GAS.
