Default Do I need to replace this brake line

Hi guys,

Came off on a track day the weekend just gone.

My brake line is kind of bent! This is the section closest to the master cylinder.

I think the rubber has just came apart from the stainless part, it hasn't leaked or anything and I cannot see any cracks/splits.

If I re bleed my brakes with good lever pressure and nothing leaks etc would it be alright to run it still?

This is a track bike only.

How do I load pics up, I'm on iPhone

If you have a doubt, replace it. Quality lines are cheap.
Brakes are a critical control element.
Especially on a track, where you are running closer to the edge.

Agree fully with madhatter, if you're questioning the brake line replace it, on a track bike it's not worth the piece of mind to me.

Replace it. These guys got it right, they aren't too expensive and you need quality lines on the track, especially as your skills improve. Better safe than sorry
