perfect fit
Perfect fit on my 07 YZ450f. my stock line had a little leak starting , and to be honest was always a bit spongy feeling. This line was a bit longer than stock (which was good since I have handle bar risers) and routed easily along the stock path. Braking feel was much better after mounted and bled. Looks fantastic as well. Will buy for any other machines without hesitation.

The only way to go.
Ruined my stock brake line in a crash. Upgraded to the Tusk Steel Braided line.

What a HUGE difference!!!!

A little hard to bleed all the air out at first but definitely worth the upgrade.

1 end away from being an awesome brake line
The caliper side of the brake line fit the way it was designed, but unfortunately the master cylinder side put the brake line in a bind and did not have the line ran properly. I was still able to mount it up without it leaking but does not lay properly like the OEM because of having the wrong fitting. I will take nothing away from the brake line, they are sleek, pretty, and tough, but unfortunately it has the wrong end on it, the reason for the 3 star overall review

Works in a pinch
The rubber shield over the line isn't built to fit the bike right. The rubber ends on the shield are to big. They don't fit in the fork guard clamp well at all. Then the other end catches where it goes through the number plate when the suspension is moving. This leads to putting big kinks in the line causing it to stick out past the fork tube. Cosmetics aren't a big thing for me but the ends also leave black skid marks on the number plate as well when the suspension moves. If this guard was reworked and smaller it would be a great product, buy oem until then.

Tusk braided brake lines
Go on easily and look great. Haven't bled them yet but have experience bleeding dirt bike brakes.

Note: Make sure to have rags and a spray bottle of water (water helps neutralize brake fluid) handy.

Does it come with brake line clamps?
Kurt H on Mar 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If you mean the clamps that's hold the brake line to the fork guard then no they are not included.
How long is the brake line? What is standard length?
Isaac S on Apr 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure the standard length but I was an exact fit for my 2013 yz 250
Will this run infront of the headlight on a WR250R? I noticed that on the yz250 pictured it runs infront of the number plate which would block the headlight on a wr250r
Austin C on Sep 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Double check for part fitment but is should be run on the side not in front of the lighrt
How do i know the size of my brake lines on my 2006 Yamaha Yz250f?
Juan M on May 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: That's what makes this sight so good to order stuff from, you just type in what bike u have and all the parts that fit THAT bike pop up. There is no confusion or question. You know it will fit
I need a brake line for my CRF450x. Do you carry it in black? Website only shows red.
MICHAEL P on May 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I would be happy to check our inventory for you. What year is your CRF450X?
Is there a specific way to install this cable? What direction should should the ends be facing?
A shopper on Apr 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, kinda. It installes to point up and arch over and down. The ends actually swivel to make the installation smoother and without kinks or twists in the line. To swivel the ends, just wrap the hose end with some tape to prevent scratches and insert a Phillips screwdriver in the banjo bolt hole. You can now turn the fitting to the desired angle. The harder bend usually goes on the lever end. The shallower bend on the caliper end. Again, you want the hose to be un twisted and under no twist or strain at rest.
I need this for a 2019 YZ450FX but +2" longer? Do you have a part number for a +2"?
Phil M on Oct 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: These cables are standard length. You can go direct to Motion Pro for custom length cables and lines though.
What is length of the cable for the 2007 KTM 300 XC-W line? I know they're all different lengths, based on the model...but I have an aftermarket light that sticks out pretty far so I need to make sure it can accommodate the extra length.
Clayton W on Jan 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have measured this brake line and it is 51" long.
I bought a standard length line for my 2002 CR250R with the polisport restyle kit, and it seems tight around the number plate. Would a line for a 2017-2020 CRF450R fit my application better? Are the newer CRF break lines longer?
A shopper on Mar 3, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes on both questions.
Will this fit a 2006 RM250?
Mike S on Feb 4, 2020
BEST ANSWER: To see if this part will fit your machine please enter the make, model, and year into our "Choose a vehicle" drop down boxes found above the product image. If your machine is not listed, we may not carry the right item for your application.
Can you tell me what the length is of the Tusk SS front line for an 03' CR250?
matt l on Jan 20, 2020
BEST ANSWER: On my cr 250 it was about 1/2" shorter than stock works great
Why does this not the 2012 WR250F and not the WR450F?
Alan R on Sep 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Because the WR450F has a different application than the WR250F. We do not have the correct one for the WR450F unfortunately.
I bought this line new and it looks like where the outer plastic meets the braided line there is some visible glue, I can pull the braided line in and out from the plastic and move it. Is this bad or is that normal?
Brandon B on Aug 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This is okay. Your brake line will not be compromised in any way.
My 2011 KTM 450SXF needs a longer front brake line to clear a headlight. The EXC/XCW lines are longer OEM, but the part numbers for the Tusk lines for an SXF or EXCF come up the same. Do you know if this is the longer EXC size or shorter SXF size?
Matthew P on Aug 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Well... I’ve never had to run a longer line because of a headlight. I don’t run them outside the light, but over the speedo and down the left fork. Has never been a problem with clearance for me. I would suggest calling RMC and asking for a length anyway. They should be able to help
What is the id of the fitting and the thread size for the included banjo bolts?
michael j on Jun 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: To be honest not sure I know it bolted it perfectly
This will fit husqvarna fx350 2018? Magura
Agustin N on May 20, 2019

If your machine is not listed, we may not carry the right item for your application. If you have a 2019 year model but don't see your machine as an option, please contact a tech via Live Chat or call us at 1-800-336-5437 for assistance.
Does this fit the new Magura Brake master cylinder on a 2018 Husqvarna TE150, it is a straight screw into the master cylinder?
JIM S on Aug 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: this has the same ends and bends as oem. personally I found this line failed much too quickly and went back to oem . It just did not hold up.
Will the YZ250F fit same year WR250F? Some parts fit either bike but RMATV leaves out the WR250F for some of them. Seems crazy RMATV doesn't list a single braided front brake line for a 2015 WR.
Junior K on Jul 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have looked into this for you and the reason it is listed for the YZ and not the WR is because Yamaha uses a different cable for the WR than the YZ for that year. I'm sorry we don't carry a front braided line for you.
I'm not seeing the cable for 2018 ktm 125 do you know if the 150 is the same?
Billy L on Jun 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Not sure check with a local dealer
What is the overall length in inches ?
DONALD C on Nov 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It depends on the machine as it matches the OEM specifications and length for each machine.
