Default Apes on a '07 1200R

Running into an issue where I cant find a longer brake line because of the dual discs. Anybody run into this before? I'm putting 12'' apes on. Any help is appreciated!

You can also go on-line to either Barnett or Magnum Shielding to have them made to your specifications. For having to cut them to your spec's, the prices are quite reasonable.

apes on an "r" is my first question.
second, look in j&p cycles catalog- they have do-it-yourself front brake line kits. or go to the hose shop, as mentioned above.
