If anyone lives near Dayton, Ohio and potentially wants a deal on braided lines and feels like helping out the community, Spiegler are itching to get their hands on a bike. I've been on the phone to them a couple of times and offered to send them all of my stock lines so they could measure for a kit to sell to the rest of us. They said they want an actual bike to work on in order to check the angles and types of all the fittings etc. Kudos to them for wanting to produce the best result possible.

I'm not sure how else to get the word out to people with R7s who may be in the vicinity of their facility...

I just did the same thing with mnnthbx.com outside of knoxville TN. Delivered my bike to them a couple of weeks ago. They'll be developing a host of parts. I'll remind them about brake lines if you like. I'm not sure they do brake lines though.

It seems to be a common issue as I talk to different vendors — none of them can get their hands on a bike. I have spoken to or have an e-mail thread with Spiegler, Galfer, Evotech, Gilles and AiM and they all have the same problem more or less. An Evotech employee in the UK is taking delivery of a bike “soon” and they’ll check fitment or rework product after that. Gilles are targeting “later in 2022” for their product line up.

I am in the Los Angeles area, I took delivery of one of the first 500. I contacted numerous local vendors to see of their need of a bike for development and only found walls. Flash Tune completely missed the email, they told me that weeks later, and by then they just got one in the shop. I know others that picked up their bikes early too, but they already had a racing relationship with a vendor so their bikes went directly there (Norton Motorsports) Whatever, I tried to put one in places hands. I resigned to the fact I'll just need to wait for stuff to eventually come out.

Galfer has extremely quick turnaround time on custom lines - and it’s very easy to do. I used them for my R7. It takes a few minutes to measure everything out (longer if you’re trying to keep ABS obviously) but the end product is superb. Just an FYI for those who don’t want to wait.
