I removed my front brake line splitter years ago and just run two full length lines from the callipers up to the brake master cylinder. Not saying itís better or worse just curious how many people have done this.

Sorry about the bad grammar in the title. I pressed post before I previewed it. 😊

There are many ways to skin a cat. I've seen what you have done (two direct lines from the master to each caliper), and I've seen a single line to caliper to a double banjo, with a secondary line looped over the fender to the second caliper. The Gaffer kit I use on my FZ6 eliminated the splitter and used two lines from the master.

I like the OEM splitter...or at least I don't dislike it. It gives the Honda logo a place to be screwed into.

It looks pretty neat with the splitter. Itís only because I decided to go with braided lines that I changed anything. How about connecting the rear brake line to the front brake master cylinder, now thatís a crazy thought. Or I think the CBR 1100 Blackbird had something like that?

Yes, crazy idea. You would need a proportioning valve and the electronics necessary to control the valve to balance the front/rear. Also, your master is designed to provide the correct amount of force to squeeze two calipers, not three.

Yes I first ran twin Goodrich braided steel lines all the way from the master cyl to the calipers on my 900FA back in 83, those single piston calipers were poor new, we just didnt know it then lol
One of the first lessons i learnt is you also need a twin banjo bolt we also machined an integral bleed nipple into the bolt to cure those brake bleeding blues !
Now you buy them with the integral bleed nipple built in Smile
It's something i still do use today Smile

Yep - works and looks fine. I used a double banjo at the master with an aluminimum cable clamp further down the lines;

I used two rubberized clamps mounted to the back of the fork brace to then seperate the lines down to the calipers;
