Hi Reecehk, could you please post the Galfer part number for the 5-piece kit you ordered? All I can find is for non-ABS bikes. Thanks.

Did you check their website?

http://galferusa.com/product/1998-bmw-r-1100-rt-abs-multiple-lines-fk003d173-5-2/

Google shows lots on eBay and elsewhere



Edit: that part is for the OP's bike. Are you looking for your R bike?

Thank you. I'll look at the links to see if I can only get lines for the fronts for my 1999 R1100R since the bike already has braided line for the rear.

Edited to add: I counted 6 lines including the one from the rear reservoir to the master cylinder but it appears that the kit(s) don't include that one line. Do you folks also replace that piece when replacing all the brake lines?

Hi, sorry I hadn't checked the post for awhile, I purchased mine here:
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/84-07-R1100RT-ABS-Galfer-5-Line-Complete-Brake-Line-Kit-Black-D173-5/371561162272?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

I have got the tank off and replaced the filter, I was surprised to find the hoses were all ok, no cracks and still flexible.
Also ordered a vacuum brake bleeder, I think this would be easier especially with the rear brakes. smile

It seems those hoses - especially the short "u" bit often look ok even when they have tiny fissures and pin holes. (Which is just to say do my feel like you wasted your time!)

Ok, but...
Age is not your friend, and when they fail, you're bollocked.
Suggest you reconsider as better to establis a new baseline in one endeavor
than have to piecemeal and risk being stranded.

All the external maintenance, olil/filter/air filter/gas filter/lines/brake flush/lines/pads
should be done after a while and mileages.
Best wishes.


If my mind wanders, should I follow it?

This was supposed to say: DO NOT feel like you wasted your time.

I thought it was a bit odd! Thanks for clearing that up.

kalali,

I saved about $20 on a full set of Spiegler brake (and clutch) lines by ordering the kit on Amazon.

I learned that Spiegler custom makes every order, even kits on Amazon. There are so many choices of colors of lines and fittings they couldn't stock kits. It only a few days to get the kit. Surprisingly quick. Easy install, too. Bleeding was a "learning experience".
