[NC] Install Note: Techna-Fit Stainless Steel Brake Lines

Post by BenjaminA018 »

Just an install note regarding these lines:

The fittings that attach to the front caliper in this kit are 4mm or so thicker than the stock brake lines. The hardware that came with this kit included new banjo bolts, but they were the same 22mm length as stock, resulting in substantially less thread holding the brake line on.

I would recommend special ordering two M10 x 1.0 x 26mm banjo bolts to accommodate the thicker fittings. This only applies to the FRONT lines; the rears were just fine.

The Technafit banjo bolts are slightly thicker....BUT what you see there is the wrong banjo bolt. Email us an address and we will get Technafit to send out the correct longer and narrower banjo bolts.

Installed Techna-Fit brake lines last Monday and I confirm that issue. Bolts were about 0,5cm shorter than they should.
I had to order longer ones from a local shop...

I apologize, as I should have clarified the picture before posting. I only took that photo to demonstrate the width difference of the two fittings. I didnt want to uninstall the whole line to just to redo the picture with the other bolt, sorry.

But here is a photo of the included techna-fit bolts (top) next to the OEM bolt (bottom). You can see the heads on them are thinner than stock, but the length UNDER the head is identical to the OEM bolts--which, when paired up to the new, fatter fittings makes the bolt ~4mm too short.
