2014 ZX6R Speigler Rennsport brake line issue

Hey guys, not sure if anyone else has the 13+ Speigler Rennsport brake lines Y configuration. But my lines were almost 7 inches passed the caliper. I've installed these lines before on my other bikes without issue. Several buddies of mine experience this too with their front and rears. Its so long that I cannot use stock brackets to make it neat like the stock rubber lines. I double checked the label and made sure it was correct.

My mounting setup.
Line starts in front of the master, mounts to the clip then behind the forks and to the caliper. If I compress the forks during hard braking, the lines would touch my radiator.


Looking for suggestion.
Thanks

If you decide to go with a front suspension upgrade kit (Racetech for example) it will lengthen your front forks approx. 15 mm, so you may want the extra length. If not, contact the manufacturer. I will say, you should check out video of MotoGP races: the front brake lines on most of those bikes are way long!

As I went with a 2 line setup, I can't provide any insight....

"There's this adage that we have 2 ears and one mouth so we should listen twice as much as we talk. Unfortunately with the Internet people have taken this old adage and turned it around. They have two eyes and 10 fingers so they think they need to post 5 times as much as they read. And since they have 10 fingers and one brain, they only have to think 10% of the time! "

My buddies went with 2 line setup and he has the same issue. I called Spiegler and they said that their lines had added length designed for race setups. My buddies bike is race prepped with fork extenders and even his 2 line setup is are wicked long.

I got the measurements from Spiegler 8.2in to the 950 (T) 22.8in Right, 21.2in with grommet left.
S-KA0354 is correct. But these lines are wicked long

Weird. I went with the two line setup from Spiegler as well, and I almost though mine were going to be too short. They definitely don't have any extra length to them. I got my set from Sportbike Track Gear.

Are you sure you are mounting them correctly? They don't mount behind the forks, it should be around the outside front of the forks like in this picture.
