    Digital - On the 4th photo, where the rub mark is circled, where is this rub mark in relationship to the frame and components when the line is installed on the motorcycle?  Thanks!

    I understand good...
    The rubbing of the front brake hose mark in the fourth photo. It occurs right next to where the VIN number label of the motorcycle is housed. It is due to the fact that when turning the handlebar, it presses the front brake hose by movement.

    Awesome - thank you.  That's where I thought it was, but wanted to make sure.

    The truth is that when you want to brake and you see that the brake lever sinks completely. "You notice something strange in your neck." I think you understand me!  :008:

    In a similar situation, a certain orifice felt like it was puckering up very tightly.  The orifice wasn't close to my neck, tho.

    I wish I still had the plastic off so I could check for interference.

    BTW, believe it or not, I read that once you are moving, the handlebars only need to turn only 2 or 3 degrees when going around a curve in the road.  May be hard to believe, but after reading that and then observing,  I think it's true.

    In my case the strong friction produced. It has been because for my work I do a lot of parking next to many motorcycles and to get it out of the parking lot, most of the time I have to do it with the handlebar turned very far to the left. Also, at home, I have to take the bike out with the handlebar turned very far to the left. So a 10-year-old motorcycle making the same effort every day, I think it's normal. Another thing is that the routing of that brake hose should have been routed a little further away from the bike's chassis.
