I have decided it is time to replace my brake lines all around. Going with ss lines and I am wondering if this is a real big chore or something fairly easy (not counting the brake bleeding which I understand can be something of a pita). How much disassembly of the bike is required? Thanks for the help. Randy

I haven't actually replced the lines but bleeding to change the fluid isn't much of a problem. Gravity pretty much does it for you on a 77.

on the 1200. replacing the lines isn't a problem but the bleeding is a pita.... your rear master works one of the front brakes (it is a "linked" system).... it is a pita to get the air out of the line that goes over the hump of the engine to the front.... speed bleeders with a mighty vac can help.... so can using a syringe to actually enject fluid from the front to the rear master

Less than 2 hours too do front brake, had vacuum bleeder. Good upgrade, made a big difference in performance.

I'm planning on doing mine this winter. I won't be missing any riding time so I can take it slow. where's the best place to get them?
