brake cable

i hate to post another thread in here, but it's gotten to the point where everythings finished on my bike except for a few small things, which i couldn't figure out.

where in the manual (03/04 shop manual), does it talk about the front brake cable? i have no idea how to hook it up, and i can't find it in the shop manual. Or does anybody know how? It was so long ago that i took the front end apart, i'm having trouble getting all the small things back how they should be, cause i can't remember.

thanks

are you running the stock brake lines or aftermarket?

lol i dunno, i'm just confused. and am an idiot.

i'm not talking about brake lines. isn't there a cable that goes from the brake lever to somewhere else? or am i just an idiot and there isn't, there is just the brake line?

i know whatever i'm talking about goes somewhere, since i have two of them (one came with the front end ordered, the other one is messed up from my accident). I figured it went to the brake lever since the brake lever has absolutely no resistance to it, and because both throttle cables are there.

one end has a metal 90* bend on it, like the throttle cables have, and the other has a little thing that goes in somewhere else (sorry for the horrible description, it's at my house and i'm at my parents, and again, i'm an idiot)

what the f*** am i smoking .. can someone set me straight LOL

there are no cables. you should have a "brake line" that starts with 1 line then branches off into two. Unless its aftermarket, in which case you would have two seperate lines. With the stock lines, one screws into the master cylinder (brake lever) and the other two go into the calipers.




If u are talkin about electrical lines please let us know.

That sounds like your throttle cables but yeh, a picture would help. The service manual is on here somewhere so you can check it out.

weeird. I will get pics, but will be a little later tonite. i'm kind of confused because both throttle cables are there, and whatever cable i'm talking about used to be there but was damaged and was not replaced yet.

There's no fluid in the front master cylinder, so that probably explains there being no resistance in the front brake lever.

its definately not electrical. I will get pics when i get home. thanks for all the responses, and sorry for being a stupid ass ha

There are no brake cables, the front and rear brakes are hydraulic. There are only 3 cables that I know of, 2 throttle cables and the clutch cable. Sounds like you are trying to figure out the clutch cable. It goes from the left clip on through the frame, and attaches to the top of the clutch cover. I would have to look at my bike or the manual for the exact routing.

Not a waste of time, interesting puzzle. Are the front brake lines there? They are hydralic lines. One line comes off the master cylinder, splits into two down by the front fender, and then goes to each front brake.

It must be the front cable that adjusts the flow of the rear blinker fluid.

thats what i was thinking, but when i checked that .. it was in place.





























jk

both throttle cables are there, and the hydraulic brake lines are there as well. What is confusing me so much is that i obviously had one of these on my bike when i wrecked it, and my front end that i ordered came with it. But i have another one (a total of 2, the new one and the broken one) that had to be taken off, as it is damaged.

Pics will be up when i get home .. i'm sure it's the stupidest thing ever, and i'm an idiot. But oh well :P

Is it about a foot long with a loop on each end? If not, can you describe it at all?

its probly 3 feet long, one end has a 90* metal bend that screws in (yes, like a throttle cable), the other end just has a little cylinder type thing, that goes into something. The small cylinder is like the size of a large BB

Is it just a cable or a cable and the housing? The only thing it could be is a throttle cable. That is the only cable on the bike with a 90 degree bend in it. Sounds like you got an extra.

well .. this makes things a little easier, i found a part #!



i searched it on Ron Ayers, and couldn't find a corresponding part to the #.

i just checked the bike ... i DO have the clutch cable, two throttle cables, and my hydraulic brake lines are how they should be.

na ner na ner na ner na ner (thats my attempt at typing the twilight zone intro music)

from how you explained it sounds like you just got an extra throttle cable with your new front end or that one of your old ones wasnt damaged so you just threw it in with the rest not thinking about it

Since only one of your "throttle cables" was damaged, your new front end probably came with 2 new ones. You probably reused one of the old ones and used one of the new ones. Sooo now you have one good and one bad left... Make sense? That is all I could think of...

Glad to help... Hopefully that is right and your bike doesn't blow up because you are missing a cable now ;)
