Thanks for your replies ,  done lots of brakes on cars over the years so confident enough , it was securing the left hose to the fork leg that i was mostly interested to see how others had tackled it on the 600, thanks again.

Ebay has some rubber lined, stainless steel P Clips that would make ideal fittings for the hoses. You could mount them on the lower fork lugs and / or lower yoke bolts.

I found HEL lines to be a great upgrade for both my 600 and 750.
But I also got them fitted by my mechanic as I cannot be trusted.. :-[
I thought that the brakes are probably going to be important and didn't need me making a mess of them.. :P

Have a shufties on youtube for a 'how to'. I imagine there's been plenty of other folks that have already had the same issue as you.  ;)

Was at the NEC bike show last week [good day out] got a set of HEL brake hoses for the GSR 600, they are twin hoses from the master cylinder to each front caliper, eliminating over the mudguard hose, as they are smaller circumference hose's looks like i could do with smaller rubbers at secure points,and any suggestions to  secure hose to left fork leg appreciated.

Ramsay the advice about seat may in fact seal the deal as if I get just that little extra drop will be happy with this, suppose the added comfort is a bonus into the bargain as often wondered if gel seats were all that good.

sheldimus agree on xj6 liked the looks and got me back on a bike but has real limits, was looking at suspension upgrades of around 600+ to make it better but still would have some limits and changing the exhaust gets pricey and didn't think it was worth it.

Porky I expected a GSR to be a bit heavier and by in large think it should be OK as relatively strong legs but have a few issues with left due to back being broken and suffering some nerve damage so sometimes lose sensitivity, in order to keep self mobile do core stuff at gym and use martial arts to supplement this too.

Thanks for all the info so far am looking at a few bikes just now but may wait till spring, like the idea of a nice comfy seat which should give me enough to work with am looking at a 2014 onwards if finances work out.

I like you have 29 inside leg, and ride a 2014 GSR750.  Originally I lowered it by changing the dog bones but was unhappy about tackling the front end so went back to standard and bought a lowered gel seat from Top Sellerie ( ) and it is great, manage both feet on the ground.  Cost a bit but to me worth it and no numb bum syndrome.

I found the XJ6n was slow after owning a GSR600 for a few years, if you think the Yamaha was heavy, wait till you try lifting the 750 ;-)

Cheers for welcome have a bit of height envy as being taller would help my bro in law is 6' 7" so he wasn't much help when asked about seat height but he said it was a good bike before trading it in for a H***a but happy with this  now it was him who suggested the GSR.
I like the look and have a Suzuki Swift Sport and engineering is much better than the BMW's and other premium brands like MINI too as a former engineering student know this is better than brand image, first big bike was the SV650 loved it and thought about another due to low seat height but if can get GSR about without concern will be next bike have an XJ6 N just now bought on impulse to get me back on a bile but regret it it's a little heavy though well put together and a bit bland.
Gym is just to keep me mobile today as a 40 something posing is long gone accept certain limits but know how to work on them got my second different martial arts black belt in April so both keep me moving these days but as long as I do these will be able to ride  ;D
