Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - How To -

Still on orig­i­nal hoses? If rub­ber they might be get­ting a lit­tle per­ished by now.

Check for cor­rect rout­ing and any ev­i­dence of chaf­ing.

Look care­fully where hose meets banjo. Pump the brake and hope not to see any­thing like the pic­ture above.

Don’t re­use cop­per wash­ers when chang­ing brake hoses. They’re cheap enough.

Stain­less steel ban­joes are best, plated steel next best and avoid alu­minium on a road bike.
