Has anyone done the R6 Caliper conversion and NOT upgraded the lines and/or master cylinder???
I got my R6 Calipers today and it seems pretty clear that my stock lines are NOT going to work (Too Short). At one point I thought there might be a way to make them work if they were re-routed and the fittings on the ends could be bent, but I don't think that is the case, hence my question.
After all the trouble I have had with the stock brakes on my 09+ I would love to upgrade to a Brembo MC but there is no way I can afford it right now. If I have to buy new lines that is not only going to cost me more money but keep the bike parked even longer (and the weather here is awesome), not to mention the learning curve on ordering lines.
I'm hoping one of you can tell me that you did the switch without anything but R6 calipers and spacers (and tell me how you did it), but I'm not optimistic. :-/
I can post pictures if it's needed (and someone can tell me how to post them)
