I suppose I'm making the assumption that the brake lines don't go directly from the body to the caliper on the ng900- my experience is mostly limited to the c900. Funny you should mention that though. A few months ago I did brake work on a 9-3 for the first time, and I was surprised that the rigid brake line ran right to the caliper (no flexible hose as on the c900). I had to remove the caliper to replace the brake rotors, and I didn't realize that the rigid brake lines provided enough flexibility to leave the hydraulics hooked up. So like a fool, I did the extra work of disconnecting and reconnecting the hydraulics and bleeding the brakes. Oh well, it was a learning experience.
