Allright, put on a new fangled sport bike front m/c and it has a banjo bolt fitting. My brake line is 3/16 inverted flare. Is there a adapter out there to hook this up? I am having no luck in finding what I need.

Here's what I did. Bought a new s/s braided brake line with banjo bolt type ends. Carefully drill out whatever needs a brake line attached to it. Clean carefully with lots of compressed air and run a tap through it. I can't remember the thread, 10mm? I did this so I could use the banjo bolts with built in brake switch.

Every aftermarket sales book has the fitting you need. Banjo to flare. Done.

You might do a search for Russel or Goodridge.

Or check out your local independant dealer. He can probably come up with something you can use.

I usually build a complete new brake line. One fitting at the master cylinder, one at the caliper, and what ever length steel braided line it takes to connect them.

There are 2 different sizes of banjo fittings (10 mm/12 mm), make sure you get the right one.

I don't know how to post links, but you can go to J&P online and then you can see the pics of them. Then visit your indy with the image in your head and make sure you get the right size and some new crush washers.

I don't think that's exactly what he's looking for. An inverted flare is like on a regular brake line.

The fitting on the end of the banjo fitting is an AN fitting (like on steel braided hoses.
