I have the Galfer superbike lines (2 lines from the MC, one to each caliper) on my 07 600RR and I want to use them with my new Brembo 19RCS. I did a search and it sounds like there are some issues with the length of the double banjo that comes with the RCS, when used with Galfer or other aftermarket lines, due to the stack height of the Galfer fittings on the shaft of the double banjo. I have the double banjo that came with the RCS from Brembo, but have not had a chance to do an actual test fit. I need to know if I need to find thicker crush washers, cut down the banjo to keep it from bottoming out, or order a special banjo that is made to solve this problem. It's sunday so I can't call any shops to ask...
Thanks for any and all help.

Doesn't galfer give you extra crush washers when you receive the lines? I thought it was safe to double up on those washers IIRC?

i have the same brake lines bro. you cant use the brembo double banjo. you need to get a single line banjo. thread pitch for brembo m/c is 1.0.
when i ordered the line, i had galfer send me a banjo that will fit the brembo m/c.

you can go to cyclegear to order the banjo. its cheap and cyclegear is open on sunday.

you can use a double banjo bolt and most all do. Yes, when you install it normally it bottoms out before it tightens down on the lines so what you can do is double up the crush washers or better yet grind down the head of the banjo bolt and shorten it and then blow it out with compressed air to ensure no shavings are in there. Just shorten the bolt and you'll be fine. There are lots of 1.0 single and double banjo bolts out there, but you can use the one Brembo supplied if you shorten it. If you have any questions let us know.

I've heard that doubling them is a workable solution. I installed the lines like 2 years ago though and I don't remember having any extras.

I might end up ordering one if I can't get it to work, after doing a dry fit and possibly modding the Brembo supplied double banjo. My work has all the tooling needed to properly shorten the bolt, so it would be done right.

Thanks for the info. I'll dig through my stuff and see if I have any extra washers, and look into how much I need to shorten the Brembo bolt. :banger:

Problem solved. The double banjo and crush washers that Galfer sent me, for FREE, worked out great. I'm just gonna keep the Brembo banjo in case anyone ever needs one. Thanks for all the help people! :banger:
