So I've been riding for 5 months without front brakes. I can't find any front brake line replacement. Where the line goes down and connects to that t that has a single hard line off of it has a hole in it.

Where can I get replacement lines? I can't find any anywhere

OEM parts can be found and ordered here:
Aftermarket teflon lines with braded exterior:
New crush washers are needed to replace old. A clymers service book will help if you don't have one. Then you need to do a careful fluid refill and bleed.

You saved me so much time thank you so much. I have looked for countless hours for it but no avail. Is it better just to order the upgrade kit? I see some but don't see where it can connect with the abs lines. Or is it best to delete the abs

They actually don't have this line, which is the one I need

I have forgotten the torque for the banjo bolts (ones than have the holes that go into the ends of the tubes) but I think it is 22 Nm or about 15 ft/lbs. someone can chip in but this is important. that is why you need a service manual.

What your dealing with is 22 year old rubber hose brake lines that are twice past their life. You will have more problems until you change out all of them. Call Spiegler and inquire as to how to do this. Many failures are internal and just stop fluid movement either way. It can lock up a brake.

I will make sure it is taken care of. I want to be safe and it's getting nerve wracking just using the rear brakes especially to stop a 650lb motorcycle
