    I have avoided tackling this for 4 years, finally I have sorted it out. You will need the linked items below:

    M10-1.0 to 3AN Adaptor DIN.jpg
    JEGS 100784: AN to Inverted Flare Female Tube Adapter Fittings -3AN x 10mm x 1.0 Inverted Flare | JEGS
    Banjo.jpg
    Allstar -3 an to 10mm Banjo Fitting Stainless Steel Brake Hose Guage Turbo Line | eBay

    https://www.summitracing.com/search...s/hose-end-1/minus-3-an/hose-end-2/minus-3-an

    I bought a 30" black braided 3an to 3an line, quite a bit longer than stock, about 8". All in, I think this cost me about $45 not counting the extra sexy black aluminum banjo bolts and banjo fittings I bought to go with the black everything else on Mufasa :p

    CONFIRMED TODAY THANKS TO @1olbull who graciously let me fiddle with his brake lines and verify its:
    A: A DIN style fitting
    B: M10x1.0

    The above method WILL work or...

    Additionally there IS an ABS off the shelf kit available from HEL, product number HBF8014 not available on the US website!

    At the master end, replace the stock banjo fitting and bolt with the new banjo to 3an fitting and a banjo bolt. Connect the 3an to 3an line, life is good.

    Enjoy doing what every company out there has failed to do!

    This honestly only took me about 30 minutes flirting with google and a few correlations across parts fiches.

    What I need to verify is that the 3/16 flare coupler side of the Allstar 50100 actually threads together and seals. I’m not 100% sure the Triumph OEM fitting isn’t a metric fitting.

    Will surprise me if it is NOT metric. But being English - It could well be BSP, BSF or UNF - AN and JIC are not common outside the USA.

    Hard lines - common to find M10*1mm

    Yeah if it’s bsp that’s bad news and I’ll have to rework more of the plan.

    BSP is the fing devil.

    Pray it's not BSF or Whitworth.

    BSP is really an excellent thread - forms great seals and yet is hard to cross thread.
