Thanks, MK ^^^.


Got some clear tubing with a spring inside.

Submerged a small piece in brake fluid to see if it holds up.

Will wait about a week to see if it's gonna have a melt down.

you might need to wait more than a week with some of this stuff, I fitted some clear line to my resevoirs and it took 6months to leach brake fluid through the hoses as they were obviously porous but with small holes. :/

Your tubing was probably rubber. Usually takes at least 2-3 months.

Got the info and found out my tubing is plastic (PVC), so it should be okay.

Got the custom front brake res sorted.

Ditched the connecting arm and mounted the res directly on the clamp with a machined adapter.

Working on getting longer brake lines.

For clear brake reservoir hose Tygon works well, you can get it from https://www.kurveygirl.com/shop/index.php?cPath=106 or https://www.oppracing.com/category/33-f ... cessories/
I have dealt with both and would recommend either. With OPP pay attention to the delivery times listed with each item, not every thing is a stock item.

Res looks sort of like a piston. Cool.
