Ok simple question but difficult answer.

 

changing the brake set up. And need to bin one run. The easiest way is to block off one of the outlets on the T piece. You can get solid plugs to close it. But not out here. I could ram a bolt in there. But I would most likely not seal. So shorten bolt so it does not bottom out and put a washer on it so it seals under the cap.

 

ideally will run a flex the whole way down to the front brake banjo later on. This is just for now.

Been thinking. Will remove the front cross over pipe and see if I can run male ends into both flexes. Ie is one deeper than the other on this set.

Nick, you can block off Outlets etc with an ordinary 3/8" UNF Bleed Screw.

Or get a simple barrel connector:

The problem with the barrel connector is that the 3 way was mounted and that would be free floating.  Currently 2 ridged pipes out of it and one flex in. 
 

I will be just running the one that goes to the rear to the other front now and lose the banjo and cross front of subframe pipe.
