It may be easier if you removed the hose and measured it.
As its a trike and they may not have used the original goldwing brake master cylinder

thanks for the reply . It is the original master cylinder. I have been in there before but can't remember if it 1/4" or 5/16".thought some body might remember. I would like to have it on hand when I start the project this winter.

I know you said you would not ask why . but I know you my be curious . last year I took what you call a bucket list trip by myself to the west coast over a three week trip . I spent a few days in Yellowstone and they were only a couple of stations with rather high prices on fuel.I guess in my old age I "am getting tight. also going across Idaho in a some what remote area I didn't anticipate a 35 mph head wind as I was pulling a trailer and run out of fuel. luck has it I had a 1 gallon roto pack on my trailer. I made it to the next fuel stop. going across the Nevada desert I almost run out as I was running on fumes when I made it to a station. I plan on trying to go to Alaska maybe before I get to old and I know stations are far in between . I like to ride remote back roads and some at night when stations are mostly closed. I guess I might be a little to adventurous for my age but mostly I just like to be different .I do like to try and run mostly ethanol free fuel if I can find it and that is far in between

I know some friends who pulled trailers across the southwest, with 1500s, at speed, two up. One was burning a gallon every 28 miles.
Be careful, watch for them mooses, have fun …..
