I just ordered this front brake line for my 300 non abs with the chump 8" handlebars.

Didn't like the multi fitting kit that came with the bars, couldn't get it to bleed properly, either leaked or sucked air.

It may not fit your abs 300, abs has special manifold for brakes, that is why I got non abs

under the gas tank that connects the abs parts together, I don't think the brake lines can be removed to put longer ones on

That's a situation I'm going to try and delve into sometime today.

Oh yeah !
I think we are a lot who wants to add a ape hanger. This is not the first thread.

But this **** ABS do not facilitate the operation. Even on a Harley who it should be "common" to raise the handle bar, It seems to be not easy because of the ABS.
The day when a serious shop will commercialize a kit for that , I will be the first to buy !

What about another Honda with stock abs with a stock longer line? Example: the grom 125 has abs and higher handlebars, could this be swapped over? Or perhaps from a bigger honda with abs?
