XRMikey or Machmoto brake line clamp

Does anyone have an XRMikey or Machmoto brake line clamp they would be willing to sell? Alternatively does anyone else make such a product? I just bought braided brake lines for my 919 and want to attach the lines to the lower triple clamp.

They are hard to find. They fit the 599, too, as I got lucky enough to find one installed on the one I bought. You may try some 599 forums as well, but they are like ghost towns.

Most everyone who has one is still using it. There are alternatives:
Umpco line clamp 2.jpg

It's an Umpco stainless steel line clamp model 9391-05 with 9393-04 silicone rubber inserts I found at a Lockheed Martin surplus outlet center, and subsequently sampled directly from Umpco.

If that's not your cup of tea, I have made many custom clamps from standard round cable clamps from Home Depot by removing the rubber cushion, straightening out the metal, rebending the metal strap to the shape I want, cut down the rubber to fit, and put it into service. All it takes is two round mandrels just a little bigger than the lines to use as a guide for bending the metal with the rubber still in place, a pair of shears stout enough to cut the metal, and a 1/4" drill.
On the left is the clamp as it is purchased, and on the right the modified clamp for your application.

In other words with a little creativity you can make your own.

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.

Rob's always got the good answers! I did the later method at the cost of $3 for 2 clamps. 1 was turned into a brake line holder, the other is floating around somewhere still.

if you love your motorcycle, set it free.. if it comes back and hits you.. you highsided

Thanks for the 599 tip. I think I saw where they work on goldwings as well. I'm in no hurry as I won't need it for a few months but I like to cross stuff off the list.

Thanks for the tips Rob! I'll google these part numbers to see what I can find. I like the Umpco alternative as it still looks like a purpose built product.
