Hello all. I recently got the long travel kit. Had a buddy do the work. After the first ride out it was discovered that the rear brake line rubbed through from the inside of the rims. Couldn't figure out how or why this happened unless it wasn't installed properly the first time. My buddy seems to think maybe he put the rears on the front or that my rims are too small. I've searched the forum looking for similar issues but I've only found a few posts and haven't found pictures of trails with the long travel kit from the rear. Can anyone help me out and show me where the brake lines should be routed or if you encountered the same issue what your solution was?

I have a 2016 trail xt. I believe my rims are 12" with 27" 's. Perhaps that's the issue?

I went ahead and ordered new rear brake lines from super atv.

Also are fox shocks standard on these? That's what I currently have. And everything I read keeps saying to go with bandits or the very least go with bandit springs. Are they required or just highly recommended? I understand the difference is night and day... Just $1200 for new shocks is a lot after $1800 for the LTK.

I'm a noob at most of this so thanks in advance.

Thank you for the reply.

Wheel spacers because the rears are 3" shorter than the front? Are the wheel spacers reccomended to avoid this issue? That's the first time I've seen that mentioned anywhere.

Any recommendations on the wheel spacers?
