That brake fluid will eat right thru paint!
Dont you think it will eat thru fuel line like a hot hkr thru butter!
It is eating it away and the GOO is flowing thru the line into the cylinder!
You GOTSTA have BRAKE line!
Go to a Hardly shop and they may be able to put together a steelbraided one for about the same as the YAMMY stocker.
A brake shop will/should be able to put together a reg one for cheap. Those BANJO fittings are as common as MONICA LUINSKI was 2yrs ago!!

I had a freind that put "some kind" of line on his yz250 and it took only til' the end of the day b4 his bike shut down in the middle of NOWHERE!
Brake fluid is a lot harder on things (especially rubber) than even gasoline.
Put a drop of brake fluid on the back of your hand and dip your whole other hand in a jar of gasoline. Wait about 15 seconds and wipe them both off. Brake fluid is SO bad that close to 100% of the oil in your skin has been drawn out while the gas just "KINDA" dries skin out.
My point is that Brake fluid draws out petroleum and moisture frome ANYTHING.
I think even this short hose is made of a rubber that is designed for brake fluid.
If it were me, I would replace the hose with brake line, flush,flush,flush!
Go to an Automotive MX shop and they should have a piece laying around. They may even give it to you !
I also think that BL has got part of it too.
That stuff will swell big time. Make sure he does not overfill the res!
Good luck and let us know how it goes.

Are you sure your buddies name is not MANIAC?
Never start a out a post I have a buddie that did
That means you did it
Hey this should be part of the superstition posts
Just razing ya
Once you get the new (BRAKE LINE) before bleeding, thuroughly clean the calipers, file or sand any burrs, round off the edge of the NEW pads
and apply just enough grease to the ears of the pads to keep things slipping
Then Bleed it real good..
