Front brake hose setup help?

Going a bit mental on the ST...

Radial front master and M4 Monoblock calipers

Quite fancy having a single hose up to the master but I've seen two routes used so far:

T-piece above the wheel and then two short hoses to the calipers, used this on my Aprilia and it worked a treat and bled quite easily...

Ducati seem to favour using a single hose down to one caliper then a twin banjo and another hose to the other side, sounds a pain to bleed but, is it?

As an aside Venhill now do some nice looking stainless ended hoses where the fittings still swivel, look good - anyone used 'em?

Cheers - Frank

Mood: Bloo and Yellow.. and Red now ;)
Single hose down to RHS caliper than a loop over the guard works fine and bleeds well. Cheaper as well as it's only two lines rather than the three line setup you had on your aprillia


.....but better in YELLOW, or Bloo and now even RED

Cheers Neil,

Looking at my range of discarded hoses (LOL), I might have an over the wheel line that will work and just need a single long hose to the bar and some fitments.


Cheers - Frank
