Pullback Bar Riser Problem
I'm new on the forum so hi all.
My wife got a new 2019 500 Rebel last month but being quite short she wanted to reduce her reach by fitting the H2C Pullback Risers. I fitted them this morning, which was simple enough, but the problem this threw up was that the front brake hose isn't really long enough to accommodate the additional rise of the bars. I've had to disengage the moulded on grommet from the hose retainer and on full lock there is a little too much strain on the hose.
The pics below show the problem but don't really show how much strain is occurring at the tight bend in the hose on full lock. I'd have a new line made up but it looks like the line connects to some kind of unusual Honda connector block behind the headstock which I won't be able to get replicated.
These 40mm/20mm pullbacks are sold as genuine Honda OEM accesories but I'm having trouble believing this. To my mind they should be sold with an amended, longer brake hose. Anyone has similar issues?
