    Anybody got a pair of mufflers to suit a honda cb200 or similar lying about? 1&3/8" (35mm) inlet and about 2' (600mm) long.

    Hey Guys,

    Little bit of help please ... to install my refurbished Ohlins shock (Originally from a TT belgarda, converted & set up by Paul Rooney) on my XT, I'll need to move the rear brake resevoir. I've got a location that I think will work, tucked up out of the way - but the original tube/pipe running from the resevoir to the rear master cylinder won't work. So here's my question:

    What flexible pipe should I use that is suitable for brake fluid, & where can I buy it?

    Thanks Heaps!

    Supershit and get fuel hose of an appropriate diameter.
    Can always do what the racers do and just use a length of hose, no reservoir , just means you have to check the level more often. Usually a clear hose, generally silicone. Again super shit or bunnings. Bit of cork in the end.

    Cheers

    Thanks Tom,
    So any fuel hose or silicone hose will be sufficient - OK, just checking then - It doesn't have to be any special material, nor take any pressure cause its just delivering the brake fluid to the reservoir. (I think I thought that because brake fluid eats paint etc that it must have needed something to contain it)
    That sounds like a cool trick with the clear hose too. Might think about that as an alternative if the other option ends up getting tricky.
    Thanks again for the help!

    El cheapo hose will do but the real deal is called Tygon, it is ultra chemical resistant (won't sweat brake fluid) and it's what all the GP bikes use (probably)

    Google Tygon, you can buy it on Ebay Amazon etc, also medical suppliers.

    Cheers

    Well progress is a little slow with the lockdown. . . . :norton

    My design book has lots of drawings as I keep contemplating this build.

    Anyhow did a rough design of the oil tank and side cover. As usual this is most likely to change before manufacture

    Oil tank would hold approximately 1.541437258 litres

    [​IMG]

    Then a mock up of the X5 left sidecover. The X5 sidecovers are mirrored so that will make it a bit easier to build. I am planning on a couple of creases with the bead roller to break up the slabbiness of the sidecover.

    Seems I used the same CAD program on Reg :hmmmmm
