Nomad, and welcome to the dark side. Thanks for the head up. My DX has almost 3,000 miles on it with no hint of trouble but I will look at the master cylinder and check the hose.

I found exactly the same fault description in a German V-Rod Forum, made it a sticky.

The problem was solved by the dealer, excellent assistance.
The new oil line from H-D is different, check the 1,2 and 3 attached picture.

Yes Jan, below I think there are the pics of the German case, they are taken from the 1130.it italian forum ( http://www.1130cc.it/phpBB2/2-vt1091...r=asc&start=15 ).

So is this something official the dealer would offer, or did your particular dealer make you a custom oil line?

Not to get off topic to much but I noticed you said you used the rear brake only and when nothing happened you used the front brake. You should be using both. Also 70% of braking is provided by the front brake. Just concerned about your safety.

Just do not consider that pics, I can't remove them.
A new one will replace that brake line. The one in the pics is not correct.

The same thing happened to my brothers Night Rod Special. He actually found it when looking to see if there was any adjustability on the break lever for me before I purchased mine. His was touching so it ended up in the shop for about 8 days to be fixed. That said that was one of the first things I inspected before I even rolled my out of the dealership.

Ok, at the end, the brake line was replaced with a new one, but this time with more distance between exaust and brake line...let'hope ... 1 cm more or less.
The assistance from the dealer was excellent.

I would have appreciated a letter form H-D ...anyway...

Just checked my line and it is rather close but not fused or close enough to become fused from what I can see. I will be having mine in for the 1K run and will have them check it out.

When breaking always however use both breaks. As stated in earlier post most of your breaking comes from the front break. You must have come from dirt bikes like me where you just jack the rear break all the time.
