Default 1990 fxstc rear brake line

I'm adding +3" accutronix forward controls to my 1990 FXSTC, question is..can i tie into the brake line fitting that comes in on the back of the original plunger assembly? do i have to change the line back to the brake switch? and if so who makes them?

If you can find a fitting that matches what's there, then you can tie into it. I don't know what fitting style that is off hand, but if you can figure it out, then a place like Pegasus www.pegasusautoracing.com/home.asp will have what you need.

I'm not familiar with that particular brand of forewards, do they come with a new master cylinder? On the older FXSTC's you mount the controls and just get a longer rod for the master cylinder. Not sure when it changed but the later bikes had the master cylinder mounted on the controls and when you added forewards you need a longer brake line.

I am sure your 90 is the old style, just like my 94. The older ones mount with two bolts, the newer use three. I'm mentioning this because I put mine on about 3-4 years ago and had a little difficulty finding 3" in the old style. But I was just looking for extensions, not the complete set...

If you are using forwards with an integral master cylinder I suggest you replace the entire brake pipe with a longer braided one, from Goodrich or HEL or any other pipe brand. They can be bought ready made up to a suitable length.

There are two off the shelf ways to do it, un-screw the line from the brake switch, and add a small piece of steel line with a coupler, or find a car front flex line with the proprer size hole for the banjo bolt at an auto parts store, then steel line from the other end of the flex line to the brake switch. I have a car flex line on mine.

Went to Saskaoon today and replaced all lines with Russels from front to back, that was the best way to go.....$130 i think,
