What should I do here? HELP.

Took the bike out for a test ride today as Riaz and I put on the exhaust last night.

came home and noticed that the new ohlins shock's reservoir line is rubbing on my exhaust piping...


I'm thinking the heat might boil the fluid? Whats the worst that could happen in one track day? What would be a good permanent fix?

If I crack the line just enough to swing the line down, would I screw up and or lose line pressure?

The wrose? I guess it could boil or maybe melt the line. That wouldn't be fun.

that'll do.
I was gonna suggest bolting it to something else, but it will probably be fine like that. Just check it because that area is definetly subjected to alot of movement/vibration.

the zipties will hold it just fine.

relocate it as you mentioned, or take a coat hanger, twist it around a pencil, etc, paint it black and install it over the hose. Bend it to your preference.
