    Leaking connection with ABS module

    Hi,
    What would be your recommendation to the following issue?

    Brake hose hard line from ABS module to front master caliper leaks at the connection with the ABS module. Tried to connect again and use the proper force, with no luck.

    I see at least four solutions, but I have no idea which one of them is in use at the workshops and which would be the most effective:

    1. Disconnect, check the flare of the hose - if possible polish it a bit to remove possible scratches eventually reform the flare.

    2. Cut off the old flare (DF) and form a completely new one on the same hardline.

    3. Cut the part of the hardline, and connect via the compression union a new part with a new flare on it.

    4. Buy a brand new front master caliper to ABS module hard line.

    What would be your advice?

    Thanks in advance!

    Personally I'd go with 1 or 4 (not 2 as pipe will be too short & you will never get it to fit)
    If option 4 then remove the original pipe without bending/damaging and go to a local brake specialist to get one made up.  (or you could speak to HEL Performance,  they have supplied me with complete hose and pipe sets to pattern in the past.

    Be interested to know why its started leaking - assume it must have been apart or come under stress at some point?

    When you disconnect it, can you determine by inspection whether the leak is caused by a problem with the tube and flare, or with the ABS seat where it inserts?

    Thank you for reaction! Appreciated!

    Indeed, 1 and 4 look like reasonable solutions. I checked with my local HEL distributor but they need a sample to make new hose. On stock they have only lines for non-ABS Tigers. Maybe original will not be too costly. Shall check if option one won't work.

    Well, I had this crazy little idea to mount ABS on my Tiger  :001: while making 80k big service, re-doing lights wiring etc.  Unfortunately one out of four lines makes problem...

    Thanks, indeed - good point. And what would be the advice in case the seat is problematic and not the tube?   :084:

    In any case, whether the seat or the tube, as suggested below, a trip to the local automotive brake service company would be worthwhile- they see these problems frequently and could either fix it or give you good advice.
    Being a critical safety feature, it would pay to have the professionals look it over.
