Please Help - F3 Braided Front Hoses F3 800 non ABS / Oro

Hi guys,

I thought Id be clever and upgrade my stock 2012 F3 brake calipers with Brembo M40 Monoblock units.

Ordered a set of brake hoses that were advertised as suitable for the F3 Oro which is identical to my planned setup (The F3 800s have the ABS which the ORO does not making mine an Oro setup).

First set Frentubo set arrived, tried to fit the hoses and managed to kink the hose against the T-piece badly. Sent a mail the Frentubo and they said it was incorrect fitment so I ordered a replacement set

Replacement set arrived, I played with it and still something seems really wrong with it. The banjos face the wrong directions in relation to the calipers and the hose lengths just seem wrong (too long).

Anyway sent an email again to Frentubo where they basically said they wont help me because my setup is not standard (basically F'ck you).

Does anyone have a link where I can purchase a braided front hose for a F3 Oro / 800 non ABS, I dont want to go custom as I dont have any idea what the lengths should be. Im just really tired and would like to go ride my bike already. Its a month since I took it apart thinking it would take a few hours to fit (and it really should have taken a few hours).

My suggestion is to get a local shop with a good reputation for race builds to make you a set without the Tee junction. Will need two hole fitting. New crush washers of course. Brand is irrelevant. If you want to change bars to a higher set then get a small additional length added at same time.
Oh and be careful not to tell them you own a MV or they will double price.

Thanks for the advice.

I did manage to get Startwin trading to get me a genuine F3 800 (non abs) hose for 65 euro. This is the same OEM hose as the Oro.

The only issue with Startwin is their shipping costs are ludicrous!!!! Paid 90 euro shipping for a 65 euro hose.

Carpimoto shipping from Italy was 20 euro with DHL. Really bitter pill to swallow, but Im desperate to get my bike on the road again.
