Default 15 sporty braided rear brake line

Hey all, so I can’t find anyone that makes a braided rear brake line for a 2014 and up sporty. Oem part #41800318 I was going to just order one made but there is a weird double banjo on it for the switch. No one seems to make one to fit. I’ve called everyone I can think of. Anybody have any ideers?

Hard to believe a replacement is not availible aftermarket, maybe do a part number search on E-Bay? Option would be to use a braided line of the appropriate length but use a banjo fitting with the brake switch built into it.

Check your local hydraulic hose suppliers.
There's a local one I always go to that will build you whatever you need on site and its super cheap. Just bring in your old line.

I just took them my old front line and they made me an extended braided line using the factory fittings. (Company is Amazon Hose Tampa, FL)

Its like a trip back in time, a store you can actually bring random parts into and they make whatever custom bit you want right then while you wait.

Aren't the stock lines braided? I thought they were (now).

Try Magnum Shielding. They make very nice braided brake lines. I've got one up front. Different finishes and colors available too. Good stuff. I'll eventually install one out back.
