Lines under tank cover
« on: December 22, 2017, 12:36:37 am »
What are the thin metal lines under the tank cover ( the black cover at the front of the tank)? I added a tank compartment from a 09 to my 13. I just want to make sure that the pressure from the compartment being bolted down wont affect these lines?

If I understand what you're talking about, those are brake (ABS) lines from the ABS pump.

I looked through the manual amd i think you're right! Just want to be sure the tray isn't going to cause these lines any stress when i tighten it down.

I would check to make sure there is clearance between the bottom of the tray and the lines.  They are relatively soft metal and you can pinch them fairly easily.
