    The search function could be useful. This topic (and many others) are recorded here - over a decade of accumulated knowledge.

    You do not have ABS, buy a one piece line -you can get extensions but not advisable

    You're doing fine.

    HEL brake lines

    If you're the expert, you need to call them and tell them exactly what you need. If that's not you, please have your mechanic call them and order directly, and if they're good, like mine was, you'll be tickled pick with the results.

    Please note: HEL makes color sheathing, so you'll want to look on there and see if you want anything other than the default silver stainless.

    Let us know how it goes.

    BTW, I got my brake lines before I installed the risers (actually, @warp9.9 installed them THANK YOU !) and there was enough slack that the brake lines were no issue. What I did have to order from Barnett was a longer clutch cable.
