I'm refurbing my front braking system I have a 79 special ll with single front disc/caliper with an intermediate junction (presumably for easy addition of a dual front disc brake system .) I would like to replace the 2x hose system with a single braided hose from MC to caliper. I reckon a 39" or 1 metre hose should do the job. Are there any problems with doing this ? and can you retro fit wire coil protection afterwards ? Last question , the hoses are marked DOT NCRN 9/78 1/8 HR are these the original hoses fitted in 1978 when the bike was manufactured ?
