    I was going to say the same, the Daytona has a clip each side is that not on the street?

    No they don't use them on the ABS equipped Street's

    Do they even use them on the ABS Daytona's?

    All they. We'd to do is have the cable bowing out not in, it's an angle thing. Must be.

    Originally they said they had ordered new cables and a mud guard, I'm guessing they busy and swooped the guard.

    That's not removed the cause, just the outcome.

    i have them on my Daytona, yes.

    can you take a pic of the caliper and line that is wrong Steve?

    the only way to influence them is from the banjo, as mentioned by someone before, but i agree with you, surely they would have checked the problem and the routing when they replaced the mudguard, knowing it was a problem in the first place.

    i suppose i am lucky with my dealer, that i got to choose the mechanic who works on my bike, as i know he will always do things properly.
    had different techs assigned in the past and came back with issues, so now they always use the right one.

    That's a great point....a good mechanic is worth their weight in gold, and worth taking care off with a spiff ($$$)...you'll get paid back tenfold in extra attention to the job, getting bumped up ahead of the pions, etc.

    "Oh....is that your $20 that fell on the floor?? Go ahead and pick it up...I'll be watching the TV while you swap that tyre unusually-quickly-for-a-Saturday"....../blah, blah.
