I've been searching for SS brake lines for my '91 K100LT with the ABS I system. I'm finding them for the non-ABS bikes but nothing so far for the ABS. Any suggestions? If I searched on a different model [K1100?], would the parts fit for this model? If I have them custom made, are the lengths specified in the BMW parts lists correct?

Thanks,
CMT

The lines for a K1100 will fit but need to be for 1993 or earlier. From 1994 on the ABS unit was under the seat in one piece where yours has a modulator on each side near the pillion pegs and the brain in the ducktail. They are the only bike I can think of that has its brains in its arse. Very Happy

I had the same issue not a couple of weeks ago the rears weren't a problem to find the fronts however proved a little more elusive. Eventually i found the company link below... Not sure if they will ship to the US but it may be worth finding out.

LT SS hoses front + Rear

the company name got me.... K300!

I love the little bit in the side bar where he says Car Performance, Bike performance and Harley Davidson I thought that was a bit of a laugh.

I guess that Harley owners don't think of them selves as bikers.... just Harley riders....

using motobins site i would wish anyone the best of luck in working out which brake hoses you need. I know for certain that Motorworks don't stock the front kit.

What both sites should be selling is the kits which work out a lot cheaper and will include banjo bolts and washers. ie:

K100LT ABS Front kit....
K100LT Non ABS Front kit....
Kwhatever your model is brake kit.....

And there descriptions need revamping... it would be far better to see hose a length x connections this....

Just my 2 pence worth there.... Rant over

If you're having a bit of a time locating hoses still, contact a dealer who can order from Spiegler in Ohio (Subsidiary of a German company). They specialise in BMW hydraulic lines and list your model in their catalogue. As an aside, for North American residents, Motorworks won't ship to that continent for some reason. Knowing a good thing, Motobins will, however.
