I won't lie, I'm devastated. I've checked pics online and it's routed 'correctly'. I feel a bit hard done by that'll I'll be the one with a bill for a new fork outer (at best) for a poor design?!?

My first question is, are you the first owner?
What is in that location that could remotely eat through the fork tube?
I dot not know anything about the B3, but I thought it was the same setup on the front end as the F3?

That type of damage looks like something slid steel was crushing between the fork and the fender or something at one point, or chaffing from a uncovered stainless line.

The hose should have suffered a lot more damage if rubbing than that fork tube shows !! The hose is a softer material unless you rub through the plastic outer coating and into the inner steel braid protective housing for the plastic inner hose.

What do the hoses look like?

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Iím the second owner. The hoses sit exactly where the rubbing/damage is.

Photo of the hoses where they were touching the fork tube?? If the hoses are fine then that damage happened from another cause and probably before you got the bike.

Perhaps another type hose was installed and then removed when it damaged (and became damaged as well) the tube.

Possible. The bike had 2900 miles when I got it and full paperwork, thereís mention of removing the pillion pegs but nothing about braided lines being fitted. Iím not even sure why youíd add braided hoses but it is feasible.
Pics of the hoses.


With flash....
