Can someone tell me the size of the transparent hose that is used for bleeding the brake lines? And the proper lenght to use?

:cry: :cry:

1. Measure the barb (hump part) of the bleeder screw.

2. Go to your local radio controlled hobby shop and ask for some silicone fuel tubing. Ask for an inside diameter that is the same from what you measured in #1.
Hope I haven't confused you

I'm not easily confused, but thanks for the help. I just thought that someone on the site would already have such an item.

I just went to the automotive store and got the vacuum brake bleeding kit and it comes with hoses that work on our bikes. I think it was $20.00 and the vacuum hand pump is the best way to bleed your hydraulic brakes! :cry:
