Default Front Brake Line LENGTH

I'm searching for the length of oem front brake lines on a gen1 as a model for a custom SS line.

Does anyone know the actual length of a gen1 front brake line? My forum searches have found many threads, but no answers.

The GenII has 125cm hole to hole. You should be good with that.

I read that post, DPeltier, and dismissed it with all of the off-topic banter. I'll use those measurements for comparison to a continued search, since a custom SS line is a one-shot deal.

Thanks for your response.

No problem; I'd measure one of mine (I replaced them both with Russel SS lines from Eaglemike) if all my crap wasn't in storage due to my move.

Thanks for the offer to measure the line, DPeltier. I've had custom lines made from HEL as well as Russel, and love the quality of both. I'll pull my brake line tomorrow for the measurement, and check around for some good lines at that length, or customize it for (possibly) another set-up of handle bars.

The 320 rotor is on, and that frees up a couple of inches of the stocker, so I'll keep that in mind when ordering.

More than likely, I'll order again from HEL, or Summit Racing for the Russel.

I'm over the ego of the other supplier you mentioned.
