    Braided front Brake Hoses Spacer?

    Iíve just fitted some HEL braided front brake hoses I bought at the Bike show, as they are just over 7mm OD and much narrower than standard the gromme guides are a very loose fit.

    Do I need to get some hose to make up the difference or is it not a problem, callipers wonít be fitted for a while so difficult to be sure either way?

    No problem. You want loose fit with hard lines, particularly if you have 3 piece ones that are shorter. Gromet is where line bend changes direction...

    They often come with a rubber spacer fitted to the lines. If you slide that into that grommet, they are a perfect fit That said, it's not a problem either way. I have one bike with 'em fitted and one without. Both work perfectly well.

    Apologies for blurriness and quality of photos - they are tucked in bed asleep

    Thanks all, the rear line has a spacer fitted which was a little confusing but will leave as is at the front.
