Going back a coupla years or more, an FJR guy worked with HEL to make a longer brake line for those with MRA or Helibridge riser plates, 3" longer and like $50.
What red says..... Good on the bleeder for the master cylinder, or the messier way is to crack the banjo bolt to get it primed... could also backfill from below with a syringe.
Galfer's will have fixed banjo fittings in the right orientation, but there are variations. Not fun fighting with stainless lines that won't twist if it's a hair off. There are Russell lines where you order the length you want and install separate banjos... I vote working with the local guy, but you may need to have all your lines off so you know lengths, etc...
Note clutch line is nigh on impossible to remove because you almost need the engine out since it's attached inside the frame.... can snip off the rubber end parts (flush with isopropanol first) and fish a new stainless line up there.... I have a stainless line here for that, was supposed to be for FJR length... I never got around to putting it on, it certainly would (IMHO) improve FJR clutch action.
Note too with an empty system, if you have SpeedBleeders, priming up your new lines will be troublesome.... best temporarily install stock type bleeders... or use a vacuum bleeder.
Keep yer stick on the ice....
