Question Info request: rear brake line swap on a steel frame bike

Hey fellow wrenches.

I'm going to be swapping out rear brake lines (both the reservoir/supply and caliper/pressure lines) on my 2011 kingpin due to the conversion I have done from floorboards to vegas Ness-style pegs, in search for more cornering clearance.

I've got the vegas lines, and I have a good idea of where the lines run. Just curious to know how many hours that job has taken others that have had to entirely remove and reinstall both lines. I want to know how much time to set aside.

Thanks

Depends on how quick you can get the air bled out. Swapping the lines should only take 15 minutes or so, but getting them bled properly could take a while.

good to hear. starting the process with a mityvac to get some rbf600 in there (hardest part in my experience is getting it started if you don't have a way to suck the fluid down past the master to get the flow going). then i've got a trick little one-way check valve that allows me to bleed without a helper... cool stuff

thanks man
