    Brake flexies routing

    Hi
    Just had a pre iva MOT and the tester picked up that the brake flexies were touching the wheel on full lock.
    How have others with Aks run the flexies to avoid this?

    Thanks

    You need to limit the rack, i think other have just used jubilee clips behind the steering boots.

    I didn't need to do this on mine.

    No you don't. You just need to adjust the hose and move it so it doesn't touch. Just undo the locking nut and twist it further up so it doesn't touch

    If you’ve fitted 18’s you might need to limit the lock anyway to stop the wheel hitting the inner arch.

    If you do need to, jubilee clips won’t fit the AK rack, I tried !!
