Today's episode of "Adventures in Fine German Engineering".

Had a sticky brake caliper on my , so I got a replacement and set about changing it. Start to take off the brake line. Banjo bolts? Ha! Helmut and Franz had a *better* idea: screw the brake line *right into the caliper*.

Which means that instead of just putting in a bolt, you get to rotate the whole (heavy) caliper to remove the brake line.

Never seen that one before. Other than that, it was a really easy job, though.
