brake hose hole

Just wondering if anybody had a brake hose somehow flip over and rub on the inside of the tire? It must of happened just before I stopped because I never noticed any braking weakness. Jesse at Kodiak set me up with another hose (FREE OF CHARGE!) but I haven't bleed the brakes out yet. It looks to me its a double bleeder setup, any suggestions? Thanks

I figured Ron because it fills from the bottom up but just wanted to ask. Thanks

Personally I would do all the calipers.

Sounds like a plan. Have you ever heard of this happening before?

I have heard of a guy that had a hose go bad, Kodiak did replace the hose for him.

I have to say DRV does a LOUSY job on the placement of the brake lines/hoses. MORryde did my risers and they ripped off everything DRV did and started over. MUCH nicer job!!!

MORryde is top notch!



Today I bleed out my brakes and it was my first time doing electric over hydraulic. Jesse told me to pull the emergency cable and if you do this be careful when opening the bleeder valve. Brake fluid will come out forcefully if the bleeder is opened to much. In fact it could probably penetrate a hole in your skin if not careful. Done, next project? lol

Several instances on DRV forums about the rubber hose getting a hole rubbed in it--had my '15 redone to inside of frame rail for this very reason--at MorRyde.

Joe, I used a zip tie very loose to hopefully stop it from happening again. I don't even see how it could happen bearing in mind the distance from the frame to tire.

Along with the potential for the rubber hose to get a hole rubbed in it, if a tire blows it tends to destroy the brake lines that are on the outside of the frame. Repositioning the lines to the inside minimizes this potential. Doesn't happen often, but enough times to get mentioned on the DRV forums. This is mostly with the MorRyde IS installs, but still can happen on the standard leaf spring setups. In the 10 years I had the '05, never had the hose problem or a blowout, nor the 3 years I had the '15, but had the '15 repositioned after reading about some having all braking lost due to a blowout.

You REALLY need to keep the actuator full while bleeding!!!!!!!!!!

One person filling actuator and one person doing the bleeding makes it an easy job!
