  • 1976 Superglide rear brake hose.

    If someone has a 1976 or 1977 Superglide, with the factory rear brake set-up, could you take a picture of how the rear brake hose is routed and post it please?

    Thanks!

    Was that disk? I can help with 71, but that's not what you asked

      I can describe it:
      Forward out of the caliper, and down between the bracket and the inside of the swingarm. Under the swingarm where an Adel clamp is screwed to the bottom of the arm with, I think, a #8 hex head sheet metal screw. Outside the swingarm, to about two inches behind the C/L of the pivot bolt, where another Adel clamp is screwed to the side of the swingarm. Under the swingarm tube, and inboard of the frame to the master cylinder (if equipped with a mechanical brake switch). Or, a short U loop under the swingarm tube to the brake switch tee (if equipped with a hydraulic brake switch).

        Thank you JB, and yes Keith; thanks, but it's for a disc brake set-up.

            All the rear banana Shovels had the same factory hose route, as JB described...

              Thank all you gentlemen (you too Joey). I had removed my old rubber hose because it was deteriorating, and like a dumb-ass I forgot how to route around the swingarm bolt head. And the new stainless braded brake hose is a challenge to route. Boy those things don't like to co-operate!

                Hose should be above the footpeg mount.

                  I'm torn between keeping that hose away from my wife's clodhoppers or keeping it away from exhaust.

                    I like the way I routed it in my 2nd photo above
                    I tried to keep the sharp bends out
                    in the 3rd photo I was fighting with a hose that was too long

                      I've seen them both ways, as always, suit yourself.
