I bought a used set of Horizon Helibars and had to buy the brake & clutch line extenders. does anyone have these that could take some pictures so I can see how the extension lines are run & placed ?. Thanks  :beerchug:

I don't have pictures right now, but the brake hose extender part probably replaces the hose from the ABS block to the master cylinder on the handlebar. The clutch is either a complete hose in which case you R&R the OEM hose with the longer hose, or its a bolt on extension, in which case you unhook the OEM hose from the clutch master (on the left handlebar) and bolt on the extender, which you then bolt into the clutch master.

Wasn't sure what kind of kit you got from your description. When I did mine, I had a complete Galfer front that completely replaced all the front brake and clutch hoses, and the Galfer rear which replaces the hose from the ABS hardline to the brake slave at the caliper.

These are 5" extensions that are made by Galfer that I bought directly from Heli. They come with a banjo type bolt that has a bleeder valve, They go between the master cylinder & the original line. Just not sure which direction the banjo bolt goes threw to connect the lines together & routing of the extensions.

As long as the holes in banjo bolt line up with the hose IDs, and it seals, its good. Usually there is only one way to affix a banjo bolt, post a picture of your extension line.

When I bought my HeliBars it came with the extensions and I hated them.  Instead I ordered a complete set from Galfers and the difference was night and day.  They looked better (I got them in red) and under hard repeated braking they don't expand like the oem's.  When I had the extensions on and I squeezed the brakes you could see them pulsing like a vein.  I posted pics of my setup, there around here somewhere.

Thank you for the link, The instructions I have did not have any of the info on the line extensions & I think there are 2 versions of instructions. The Helibars I bought were ordered by the original purchaser with full replacement lines & they were left on his bike when traded in. The link you posted has the full details & pictures!!!!!!!!!  :beerchug:
