Being that Spiegler lines are plain or custom I would think this would make no difference in lines to offer 2 part numbers for different years. I’ll try to ask the rep I talked to when he emails me tomorrow.Only difference in the two brake lines should be the color of the line.
2014 was the first year the BOSS model was produced so the brake lines are black instead of stainless in color.
Only difference in the actual brake & brake line is the color from Suzuki.Being that Spiegler lines are plain or custom I would think this would make no difference in lines to offer 2 part numbers for different years. I’ll try to ask the rep I talked to when he emails me tomorrow.
Edit: I also forgot to mention it’s odd they offer a rear brake line for 06-12 but do not offer them be for 14+. Things that make you go hmmm 🤔
Talked to them this morning and got no definitive answer. We talked about what you have suggested and he couldn’t give me an answer. Regardless the manifold is being sent today and once I get the front end back together I’ll jack up the caboose and change the rear tire and remove the exhaust to change the brake line. This time I’ll wait to drain the rear brakes until I’m sure the line will work lolOnly difference in the actual brake & brake line is the color from Suzuki.
What your aftermarket part suppliers internal part numbers represent is anyone's guess.
Yeah it’s been a while for me since I could build something like I wanted so I wanted to make this bike special. I haven’t had a “nice” vehicle in a while lol. Just like you said I didn’t want to take things on and off over and over so I decided to knock out a bulk of it in one shot. When it goes down for sidecar fitment I will do other things due to having to remove the front panels so front motor mounts from billydump will go in and since things will be apart I will take off my exhaust and install the rear steel braided line. I will also remove the rear brake pedal, trim the toe peg down about 3/4 of an inch and powder coat it and the shifter lever black. I will be getting a derby cover at some point too. I just can’t decide between the submarine veteran one or getting one custom made with my company logo.That's an awesome list, Sidecar. I kind of miss the days when I had a list like that of stuff to do on mine. I used to put projects together that involved removing the same parts so I didn't have to keep putting things back on and removing them again. Now all I do to it is clean it and do maintenance.
Awesome,Alright. It’s been a busy couple of weeks but I’ve got the bike back together and I’m pretty sure most of the bolts are tight. What I’ve managed to accomplish:
Flatz front turn signals
Racetech .95 springs with 5W oil
Already time for a new front tire. I’ve never gone through a front tire so fast! New Avon Cobra Chrome 130 front on the way!
…And some new mirrors since I was ordering stuff 😂
I did read into it but I didn’t see any real clear advantages to running the 160. I do frequent gravel roads as well and I dont want to worry about clearance issues. I have no problems with the 130 other than the junk tire that comes stock. Maybe after trying the 130 Avon I can make a better decision on options later
I guess you like skinny tires on the front, as you probably
have read, many of us chose 160/60, I personally love it
especially because of bad roads where I live...
