brake lines - diferent or same sizes

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by mattb, Sep 13, 2008.

  1. G'day All.

    I want to put some higher bars on the SR500, which means fitting a longer brake line. I want to get something cheap and used (especially if that opens the budget up to a braided line) and was wondering: are there different specs for mc brake lines re the fittings, or do they (or at least do Jap bikes) share the same size fittings?

  2. There are differences. Tread carefully. Pay attention to the inside diameter of the line.
