Default Stainless Steel Front Brake Lines Help. Pics Included.

I ordered a set of Stainless Steel Brake lines that apparently came off an F4i. One line is 28" The other is 26" long. They did not come with a Banjo Bolt for the main reservoir

The line that is 26" has 2 straight line connectors and the 28" has one line connector end that is curved similar to the OEM line connector that connects to the master reservoir.

I have to account for the larger width and order a new banjo bolt.

According to my calculations I will need 16mm + 3mm for three washers plus the threaded part into the reservoir which is about another 11mm give or take a thread. So a 29mm Banjo Bolt with a diameter of 10mm.

Any Idea where to find these and if I am correct?

Also does the curved section of the line go on the inside up at the top of the reservoir?

I put a galfer kit on an R1 last year and it came with all new banjo bolts and washers. Did you buy the kit new?

Google "double banjo-bolts", just be sure of the pitch.
I did the same thing, got mine off a salvage bike. No double bolt include. They'll be sized for two lines. Also, check the local Harley shop, they will probably have them in stock.

By the way, the longer one goes to the left caliper.
If you hadn't figured that out, already. :-)

Yeah I purchased the lines for $10.00 looks like a M10 x 1.25 pitch SS double banjo bolt is in order. Just wanted to make sure that I had my information correct and I wasn't missing something.

Going with this off ebay. All in all I'm out 20 bucks on full front stainless steel lines upgrade.
