Help with install please

I received my new kevlar lines, and it appears that the two for the front are supposed to go directly from the M/C (because of the length), instead of one to the right side, and then a line looping over the front fender from the right side to the left caliper (as the stock ones do).

But, there are no clamps for the new route...  Did you guys who did this mod just use the existing far left clamp on the front fender??

And, I only have a Pit Bull forklift front stand (not a stem stand), so, how do I tell if I have enough to fully extend the forks during wheelies and such?
 
don't know about that brand I install Speigel lines
yes they are also two lines for the front but I know the are long enough.
as far as clamps if the customer wants I install custom ones if not they are on their own.
Remember time=money

duct tape worked great... And, I had a hole in one of the lines, so I used duct tape on that too! This stuff is EXCELLENT!

You are supposed to put some chewed up bubble gum over the hole in the line to get a better seal, then wrap it in place with the duct tape which pushes the gum in the hole. Stupid noobies.
 
Its Hubba Bubba, has the best pressure loading qualities due to the high quantity of resin. Good stuff, also good for patching tires

daggon rear banjo bolts that came with lines didn't fit exactly right... I couldn't tighten by hand... So, of course I cranked 'em in anyway with wrench... Some strips of aluminum crept out of threads...

Was able to bleed them and the test drive went well... I hope they don't leak or anything... Sheesh, nothing comes easily to me!
