Found out the caliper is 1/8 27, anyone on the master cylinder? also, what are the japanese bikes using? Are they metric, or AN? And where do you get the teflon, or nylon brake lines?

The master should be 1/8-27NPT also. *You can buy adapters from the 1/8-27NPT to -3AN which a lot of the aftermarket braided lines are.

Or you can buy adapters from the 1/8 NPT to the standard flare a brakeline uses.


When install any of the adapters. Use loctite as sealer not tape.

my pedal assembly is a chinese copy of cnc buggy pedal assembly and i used 3/8 x24 straight thread adaptors with crush washers from earls -the race car plumbing guys.i used -3 steel braid for clutch & brake.i use a pull type clutch slave cylinder and suzuki gsxr 1000 rear brake caliper & rotor.but earl's stuff isnt cheap-but you can order online from summit racing-they ship very fast.

look in the phone book for your area and see if you have a hydraulics supply around your area. *I buy my AN adapters and braided lines from the local parker store.

Like Superhawk said, try your local phone book; [url=http://www.tubefit.com/:1z1ryjf4]TubeFit[/url:1z1ryjf4] make the fittings and their home page shows distributors including [url=http://www.parker.com/ead/cm2.asp?cmid=10271:1z1ryjf4]Parker[/url:1z1ryjf4].

The tube fittings are common across many industries so you shouldn't have any probs finding them locally. I've seen brass, stainless and anodized fittings, though I'm not sure if TubeFit make the AL ones.
