Default BNE Update: 240 Split Brake Line Brackets









Just finished a production run on a new product. An easy and reliable way to clamp the stock brake lines in place on a 240 that doesn't require separating the lines or zipties to remove and install the front strut housings.

Now currently in stock and shipping! http://www.kaplhenke.com/collections...e-line-bracket

240 brake lines, #IDFWU

When you install them, you can listen to this song.

Also Ben said if we found 14 more people who would be interested in a single line version (for the ABS guys), he could do a run!

I got one other person requested it so you're down to 13.

Even though these will work fine with only 1 line clamped...

Any chance you could make the clamp surface interface with the spline style fittings I got?

Great looking product!

If your willing to pay 2,000 for a set of brackets I'm sure i could get the right broach and setup to machine 1 set.

Might be cheaper to get lines that would work with these if you want to use them.

yep, definitely a free way to do this with just cutting the tab.... but some people just want something a bit nicer.

The price for such a nice piece isnt that bad at all. It's not a needed piece but a very very nice piece. Very slick.

Yes, I agree.

Definitely a nice piece but not a necessity,,, but neither is 300 hp in a 240 but that doesn't stop many people from trying.

Yes, If you use the stock style brake line setups.

I'm very much thinking about buying a set because of having to disco the brake lines to pull the strut. I like that you're fixing problems people didn't even realize they had. Love it

-50 ft-lbs for no torx and metric tapping. Why an antique bolt and nut? Why not tap that piece you made?

taping into the aluminum adds cost, adds alot of thickness, and is less durable for repeated installation and removal. Really a no win situation. Trying to keep these things as cheap as possible while still being a nice part.

So yea, good suggestions for amateur hour. Next?
