    Saint Brakes on a Carbon Fatboy?

    Houston we have a problem.... I知 in the process of installing Saint brakes on my 2016 Carbon Fatboy but I知 having an issue making the banjo fitting line up on the rear caliper. I have the XTR version of the cable on the way which uses a shorter stainless banjo. Please notice in the pics that the brass banjo is bent 15 degrees or so and it痴 still a tight fit. The 15 degree bend did crack the banjo fitting at the throat so it痴 of no use. By the looks of it I need a banjo fitting with a 45 degree bend. Goodridge makes such a fitting but I知 unsure if the actual banjo end will fit my brakes. The Goodridge fitting has a size of -3 if that痴 any help.

    This looks like it would do the trick:

    Would it work to rotate the banjo fitting until it clears the mounting bracket? You could then use a slightly longer hose with a larger radius bend to line up with the banjo. I suppose this is a moot point now that the original banjo is cracked.

    Keep in mind the banjo in the pics has already been bent beyond its breaking point.

    Curious, what size rotor? I had the same problem, I was trying to use a 160mm solved it by using 180mm rotor.

    Sadly this is already set up for 180. I知 hoping I don稚 need to go to 203s in the rear. These are already overkill.
