hi guys, I already know that many of you will think I'm crazy but I bought a CO2 Cabrinha in really good condition and I want to convert it from a 2 lines setup to 4 lines in order to use my bar. The problem is that on the manual is written in a very incomprehensible way. Is there anybody out there that has experience with this kind of work?

thank you in advance

I had Cabrinha CO2's back in 2003 but they were all 4 line C kites. They used to flag out on the steering line and spin your lines into a birds nest every time you used quick release. Actually, wasn't even a quick release, you had to pull the bar towards you to unhook then let go, interesting times ...... releasing the kite always resulted in a self rescue and 45 minutes untangling lines before you could get on the water again.

Good luck with it, not sure how the CO2 will flag out on a single front line .....,

Hi Gimble.
The first half of the first sentence says it all. Put it in the bin and learn from your mistakes.
