    Just back from holiday and able to check mine.  Both my left and right cables are well clear, the connection to the brake caliper is such that they bow outwards, so maybe it's just a case of slackening the connector and twisting it round a bit.

    That is excatly what I did. For the moment it helps.
    Issue is that the brake line is not lined up in the correct angle on the caliper brake line connector when it was pressed on.
    Here it is correct. On mine it is twisted inwards.

    Looks like the banjo fitting needs to be angled out a bit.  By loosening very slightly you could probably do this without losing any brake fluid.  Mine angles out quite significantly so the line takes a curved path well away from the mudguard (fender).

    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.
    The damaged LH front brake line was replaced yesterday and sent back to Triumph for inspection.
