    I've had a set of HEL braided lines waiting to be fitted for a while now and only just found time to do it as I've had to replace some of the hard pipe.

    Can anyone tell me which lines go where? Are the shorter lines for the front or the rear?
    They dont match up with the existing (knackered) braided lines on there...

    Cheers

    EDIT:
    Ended up contacting Hel directly to confirm for certain.
    Front lines = Shorter Lines / Straight Banjo
    Rear lines = Longer Lines / Angled Banjo

    99% sure the fronts are longer.

    That makes sense as the hard line bracket is more offset from the caliper than at the rear where it's more central.

    Thanks!

    Just having another look and spotted they have different banjos

    Hel lines
    Longer - angled banjo
    Shorter - straight banjo

    If that's the case I'm pretty sure the angled ones (so longer) fit the rear caliper... Anyone confirm?
