Brakes are one of the most important components on your bike, and worth making the right choices. You can’t go wrong with Fren Tubo. All Fren Tubo Lines are TUV/DOT Certified, and made to fit your bike correctly. It may seem like there’s alot of information in this listing, but it’s not something to be taken lightly. Knowing the facts about brake lines lets you make the best choices for your safety and hard earned money. We’ve got more info in our Sermons section for you to read if you like.
Fren Tubo lines are available in 4 specific types/material choices, and a variety of options. We’ll explain them here and we’re happy to answer any questions you might have. Fren Tubo uses only the highest quality components and never skimps on performance or safety. All kits includes front and rear lines, new banjos, seals, protectors and mounts when needed, and everything you need for a correct installation except brake fluid. Note: for steel banjo bolts, torque to 20Nm. for aluminum, torque to 15Nm
PLEASE NOTE: Some kits are available in both “direct” and standard configurations: “direct” refers to 2 lines from the front master cylinder, one to each caliper. Standard is one line from the master cylinder to a splitter. The standard configuration is more effective. If you want to understand why,we have more info for you in our sermons section to make sense of it.
