ok I'll ask in here.
does any one know where I can buy some rubber pipes for the or should I say between the bottle and brake lever.
the tube need to be a bit longer to clear the fairing..
the brake fluid bottle is abit close to the fairing when the handles are turned to the right.

also the oil line at the front of the engine mine's a little rough .
would like to change it for a braided type but cannot find any on ebay?
not for the cat anyway.

any pointers to either of the two pleased.

Have you tried Autofactors ? I know it's car,van,bus oriented but if it's just pipes you're looking for perhaps they may have something that could be adapted.

Try not to get miffed if you get no answers to questions asked, it usually just indicates no one knows the solution, and not that you're being ignored Smile Thumb

For the oil line ring HEL or Goodridge and see if they'll make you one. Other than that some one like Pertec hose suppliers might do one for you, but you'll have to take a pattern with you.

If you measure the internal and external width of the pipe just try google for "Pipe ID **mm" for example to see what you get up.

I would say fuel hose would be ok but I think it would probably only be about 5mm internal and I think what you are after is alot bigger than that. Also make sure to ask any supplier you find if it would be suitable for brake fluid, you don't want to get your fluid contaminated.

It will probably be sold by the metre what ever it is so ask and other local bike mates if they want to go in on it that way it'll be a little cheaper and you won't end up with about 95cm of hose lying
