don_don465 is an unknown quantity at this point
Default true length of after market brake cable

new to the forum,

i was wondering if anyone on here with an after market stainless/vinyl front brake cable could tell me the true length of it.

Also whether it is +2"/+4"/+10" or what ever the custom order you made might be so that i can determine the length of a stock one to be made.

I would like to have one made by Coremoto and would rather find a true length of someone who has on than try to make an estimated number to avoid any extra slack or being to short. it seems as though all of the ones i have looked at online to not show a length in the Specs, just the diameter of the line.

I apologize if this is being asked in the wrong section and appreciate any help/guidance i can get.

thanks
Don

Not sure why you insist on going with "Coremoto" but, the major companies such as Magnum Shielding and Barnett know exactly what size you need if you tell them the model of the bike you've got. They will also cut you one that is a custom length, if you wish, for not much more than the stock length.
