    Damage to L front brake line

    From the beginning there was a rattling sound coming from the front fender area.
    First thing  was to remove the fender and see if it was causing the noise. Nope!
    Then I noticed scuff marks on the fender and damage to the L front brake line shielding.
    I re-adjusted the brake line slightly outward and wrapped the damaged section with a single layer ductape.
    Yesterday same rattle was there again and the ductape was damaged.
    Today moved brake the line more outward and added a triple layer ductape as temporarely repair.
    IMO the brake line is too long and informed my dealer.
    Curious if any of you seen the same.

    I have seen a few pics where the left front brake line seems to run along the side of the front fender. On mine it touches the lower left aft of the fender.
    I would appreciate a pic or 2 from you on how it runs on your bike.
    It would help me when first service is done next week to show to my dealer.

    Thanks for making the group aware of this issue.  I just checked mine, and sure enough, it has been hitting the fender and marked it.  Fortunately, no damage to the brake line, although it is slightly marked.  I have put a protective sheath on the brake line, and a thin strip of self adhesive rubber tape on the fender, to prevent the brake line from touching it.

    Me too, only a slight mark at the moment, but it has definitely been rubbing, some black gaffa tape to the rescue!

     :763: for spotting this  :460:

    Was at the dealer for the first service today. Check was made of the brake line and compaired with the dealers demo TS660.
    Dealer decided to report this issue to Triumph and to make a warranty claim.

    Its weird, mine are mounted different and there is no issue. Dont know if my dealer relocated the lines or just lucky. I also live in the hague, so if u want a closer look you are welcome.
