Front brake 3-way joint
« on: August 22, 2021, 08:07:55 PM »
I've been getting all the front brake bits together ready for fitting the hydraulics back together - after a long search I found the connector that houses the front brake switch in a box of bits.
I have all new pipework but the 3-way connector just needs cleaning up.

What is the original finish on this part as mine is a gun metal dark grey colour - it does not look like paint more a sort of matt anodized coating that is marked in places where at sometime in the past the flexi hose been replaced?

It’s a sort of Matt black stain, not paint  as such.

Indeed a sort of anodyzed looking grey with a touch of green. Probably weathered black.
