Dumb Q?? about

Recommended Posts

I got a 2002 GSXR 1000 front brake master cylinder off ebay. I'm going to use it with a MM 320 Race caliper and disc. Problem is the hose from the remote reservoir to the master cylinder has a hole in it.

Can any type off rubber or polyurethane hose be used as long as the inner diameter is the same? I don't want to use the wrong stuff and have it deteriorate and screw up the master cylinder or caliper.

I tried the local dealer and they will order the stock 3" piece of hose for $10, but I want something longer since I have to make a bracket to hold the reservoir and I still haven't decided exactly where to put it yet.

p.s. sorry for the stupid title, hit submit before I was done

any hose will work.

on a side note,what size is that master?i think its 16mm wich is to big for a motomaster caliper.you need a 13-14mm.

the lever will be rock hard and have no feel if the master is to big.

Thanks for the quick reply Burned,

You're right, it's a 5/8 master cyclinder, so 16 mm. I got it after searching here and reading Denroll's post last summer about using a GSXR mc. Maybe his is from a different year? I'll try it out and if it's too stiff I will sell it on ebay and get something smaller.

I really wanted a VTR mc since the reservoir bracket bolts to the perch making SM to dirt swaps easier, but the last one I saw on ebay went for $65.

i used a vtr master on my motomaster caliper.it worked fine but even a little stiff.

13mm is perfect.13mm is also the size of the stock master.
