    Front Brake line Rubbing on Number Plate

    Tired of having fornt brake line rubbing on number plate and making your new graphics look like crap>

    On the plastic guide hoop, below lower left coner of number plate: Drill hole a little more than half-way back. Then install zip-tye, forcing the brake hose to the front half of hoop. This will move brake line about half inch forward, minimizing rubbing.

    Not a good idea. When your forks compress, your breakline will get rubbed a lot and where-out really fast I think.

    I've been doing it since the CR85 days.
    As long as you leave plenty of room for brake cable movement, its ok.
    Otherwise you are correct: Mr Murphy will arrive in short order.

    When Servicing your cables take a desired length of automotive fuel line (rubber) and slip it over the cable sleeve, you can then secure that with the zip-tie and even lube it with a little oil. This will prevent the cable from wearing pre-maturely. Just something to think about; I'm sure you can translate this to the front brake cable (bigger hose). ;)
