Left the rear fender off, lost my brakes!

I removed the rear fender/chain cover while installing the new chain/sprocket set and didn't bother putting it back on. I rode with it off for quite a while before, so I thought nothing of it. All the sudden, no rear brakes!

I had just put on new rear brake pads and bled them. Pull over and have a look, thinking the bleeder screw was loose, then see that the hose hit the tire and wore a hole.

I was spraying brake fluid on my rear tire!

So, I'm in the market for a replacement rear brake line. I know SS is a great upgrade, but this is the rear brakes, so I don't see a need for SS.

Anyone happen to have their old one after an upgrade? What was that OEM parts seller we get a discount from? $28 from partzilla.

What's odd is that I rode the bike for quite a while years ago without the rear fender and never had this problem.

Thanks, have it ordered and on it's way. I'll live without rear brakes for a few days.
