Figuring out the clutch line

First thing to do is drain the DOT4 out of the clutch line and master cylinder. I used the mighty-vac.

On to the clutch master cylinder, of course one screw stripped and I had to EX-out in, but I was successful and I didn't damage the mc.

Take the banjo bolt out.

Here's my new AN3 banjo fitting. It's harley 3/8, but will fit the 10mm just fine with new washers.

Put the clutch control where I want it, then full lock right and measure the oversize needed. About 4 inches.

Clutch line routing.

Banjo off the slave cylinder.

Time to measure stock length.

67 inches.
So 67 + 4 = 71, so a 72 inch hose will work. Now the bad news that black covered hose I want to use only comes up to 54. I could use the nylon build a hose, but I don't like the look of the fittings and it's not DOT. I could get black pearl in 74, but I don't like it. So I will need two hoses with a junction under the tank.
