brake line size

I am thinking about building my own rear brake (hard) lines, but I need to know what size these are. I am putting rear disks on, and don't want to shell out $100 for spidertrax's kit.

Also looking for good stock front brake lines and "banjo bolts" if anyone has them.

Re: brake line size

I used pre flanged line from pep boys,the guy let me come in the back and compare my line with the ones in the back (they never know what the hell their doing).They didnt have any suzuki line,but all the import stuff was basicly the same.I think the line was for a VW jetta or something works perfect ,$2.00.

Re: brake line size

The brake lines are 3/16" tubing , standard stuff . The ends are metric and hard to find replacements that have the correct tip to fit in the wheel cylinders . Best bet is to re-use the ends and use new tubing ....

Re: brake line size

Thanks for all the help. I'll look into making my own lines. After looking at the lines on my sami though, I think all I need to do is replace the ends of my lines to fitt the larger front flex lines. Then I will just need to plumb in a proportioning valve. [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: brake line size

Napa and a few others sell ends that will screw into the stock wheel cylinders but have a sort of flange on the end of them . Do not buy these as they will crack and leak over time . Also, if you are looking to buy a good flaring kit for brake lines (double flare), get the one from Matco Tools . Absolutely the best kit I've used in 25 years .
