GL1100 Rear Brake Reservoir Tube

Postby sw3dl1 » Tue Nov 04, 2014 10:03 am



Building a 1982 GL1100 Standard.
I've rebuilt the rear brake master cylinder and found the hose from the fluid reservoir to the master cylinder was cracked and unusable.
Of course, it is unavailable from Honda.
I've tried 3/8's fuel line, it fits real tight which is alright but it gets soft and deteriorates with time.
I've been to a couple of hydrolic shops with no luck.
Any one have a decient used one for sale or a suggestion as to what to use in place of the original hose?

It's a fairly common item - do a Google search: Remote Brake Reservoir Hose

Thanks, I guess I just wasn't "Googling" the right phrase.
Found a vender ordered some tubing for the master cylinder and 6mm fuel line as well.
