It was just a thought Steve as I made my own,maybe better as suggested previously to mock it up and then get them made to suit.

The bits cost me 60 ish and there were a few spares thrown in.

I made some for the racer I built and they had bulkhead one end and 1/8 NPT straight into the caliper .

Depends on what calipers and where you mount the rears and what position you fit the brackets.
Min of four bulkhead fittings fitted to pipe at each corner at about 450/500mm.

I can recomend Russ Bost of Furore cars for custom brake hoses, well made at a good price.

Talking

I have touched on this before but without an answer. Has anyone had problems with the iva and stainless braided brake hoses? The reason for asking is that i had an mot refusal on a car for not having a bs rated hose. I just took the car somwhere else but have always wondered if the guy had a point. ????????????

The IVA inspector WILL reject braided hoses with the non-approved self-assembly fixings on the end - it happened with SVA, and I'm sure it will be the same for IVA (but I'm happy to be proved wrong). The only ones they would accept for SVA had crimped end fittings rather than the DIY compression ones.

I don't know if there's any requirement for markings on the hose, as there is for fuel pipe...

Are we in agreement that its a lucky dip. So you could be lucky and sail through or if you get the wrong man have to rip the lot out and start again along with a re test fee.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Last car I built had braided hoses through out, not one piece of copper or rubber pipe. You have to make sure it's protected as it acts like a saw and WILL make it's way through most things... Buy the hose by the mtr then buy fittings as you need them, easier to make up than all that faffing about with flaring tools as it's a nut and an olive, if it leaks nip it up.....simples. On evey single bike with discs the first thing I changed were the brake lines as don't trust the rubber stuff as it pumps up prior to braking force applied, braided gives you firmer brakes and being able to stop is far better than all that 100's of BHP nonsense
