Sin at haste, repent at leisure, as normal. :D

Back in 2004 it didn't seem like too much of a problem that the pipe that goes between the reservoir and clutch master fell to pieces. I'm looking at making one as it seems fairly straightforward, apart from putting the bead around the solid pipe where it goes into the flexi, which I think might be possible to do with a brake flaring tool.

Anyway, I can't see what the correct size of pipes (solid and flexi) would be - does anyone have an idea?

I think the metal pipe is 1/4" brake/fuel pipe. You wont need to flare the end for the rubber pipe, it'll push on a couple of inches and with a clip wont leak. No pressure there just gravity :)
