Re: Fitting brake lines?
It's 1 flexi line each side for the front and 2 each side for the rear because it's the swing arm type suspension, The bleed nipples are normally covered with a rubber hat, this though is normally as useful as a chocolate fireguard as it manages to keep the dirt/salt and grit gight at the base of the nipple and propergates corrosin which siezes the little buggers right in, dont bother with a spanner on them, just get straight in with the moleys.
Always hold both side of a union when trying to undo or tighten it, otherwise either the pipe will twist and split or the olive will weep and break its seal after you retighten it.
Finally, use an eazibleed to bleed it afterwards, and use a bike innertube to pressurize it, I've seen so many reserviors blown by people using the spare wheel, though it says to use that, it DOES say to drop the pressure in it, a bike tube will hold adquate pressure and can be comfortably sat on top of the engine.
