VIDEO HOWTO: Install SS Brake Lines

I decided to document my installation of the Goodridge SS Brake Lines on a 2009 R1. Procedure should be pretty universal I imagine. Unfortunately I have to take the video and do the work, so it's more of an outline then an in-process video, but should give a pretty good idea of the overall procedure and what you're in for. Make sure to up it to 720p or 1080p for better resolution.

Install Brake Lines:

Bleed Brake Lines:

2009 Yamaha YZF-R1
-Graves Cat Eliminator Carbon/Ti Exhaust, Frame/Clutch Sliders, Smog Block Off Plates, Front Sprocket Cover
-Flash-Tuned ECU, Dynojet PCV
-Fender Eliminator, LP flushmounts, OEM Seat Cowl
-Ballistic Evo2 8-cell battery
-ASV C5 Shorty Brake/Clutch Levers (blue), Renthal Dual Compound Grips
-Zero Gravity Corsa (light smoke)
-Goodridge SS brake lines
-Driven 520 conversion 16/45, RK GXW Chain, Probolt Sprocket Nuts
-GBRacing Case Covers, Vortex rearsets

Great Video it was awesome quality in 1080p. Nice bike, where did you get your carbon exhaust shield from, the one covering your Y Pipe?

Cheers

I installed the same lines from RD as well last month. Things I did different were, drain fluid from lines at caliper into a water bottle instead of draining through the bleeder,and ran the front lines ahead of the fork tubes for better clearance and looks without stock bracket. Thanks for adding the vid for people that would otherwise pay for installing.

Yeah, I had to use a few zip ties to make sure all the clearances were ok. The stock ones were a little less stiff, so this I think can use a little help getting held in place. Only reason i went behind was because that's how the stock ones ran but I like the in front idea, seems like it may take up a little of the extra length. Do you have a picture of how you routed it?
