Front brake line

G'day
I've got 3000km up on my Brutale 800 and have noticed the front brake line insulation wearing secondary to rubbing on the fork.
Has this been a problem for anyone else and/or does anyone know where you can get a fork tube clamp/guide for the line?
I have seen one on the la furtive bike by alkadesign, but can't find a version of it any wear else???
Cheers

My brake line wore through the coloring on my fork. I never would have noticed if I hadn't had a leaking seal replaced and the fork was rotated when it was reinstalled. At first I thought the fork had been scuffed while being worked on, but then realized the true cause. It was an easy fix by rotating the fork around to its original orientation so the scuff is hidden. It was only an aesthetic thing for me, no issues with wear or deterioration.

I don't know about any specific bits to reroute or relocate the brake line, but another option is to just get a clear plastic sticker to put on the fork where the brake line rubs.

Yes, this is currently happening to mine. Dragster RR 2.8k miles.

Will have a chat with the garage boys when I get back in the country

Thanks for the feedback.
I will chase up a photo on the weekend.
I did use a transparent film to cover the forks to protect from stone chips etc. but I think the rubbing on this film generated more friction leading to the wear on the brake line insulation.
Another contributing factor will probably be the fact that where I live in Northern NSW, Australia has road surfaces predominately made from pot holes and bad repairs giving the front end a good work out.
I am interested to hear what the garage boys say Kageira.
Cheers

Mines at 2750 miles and i just checked while cleaning. It's worn through the outer pipe already. I've temp put some tape round it and will look at some sort of Velcro to pull it away like the above picture too

Not cool as I'm hard on my brakes so would definitely have a brown pants moment if i anchored up and it went!
