    SB95c Rear Brake Hose Routing?

    Hi guys

    Can any of you SB95c owners please have a look at these pictures and tell me if I've got the rear hose routed correctly please as it just doesn't seem right to me?...

    That is correct. Two things I would point out though, you don't need the excess hose between the lowest cable stop on the downtube and where it slots in between the frame and link - you don't need any extra hose for extension there. Also, a small zip-tie around the swingarm/brake hose where it passes by the rocker will keep it higher in that "slot" where there is more space for it. Hope these make sense and are helpful.

    Very helpful thank you. I've placed some protection tape on the outside area of the link and inside of the swing arm and will use a zip tie as you've suggested. Thanks again.

    Just like Dogboy said , you can pull the cables forward and get rid of all the excess cable there.

    Then you can run the cables around the steering head way outside on both sides and they wont even touch the head , the cable routing can be very clean on this bike.
    Im glad you got your bike going , i wish I could ride with you !
