Break fine length

Hey boys,
Generally how long is the break line from the master cylinder to the break reservoir of a 2009 zx6r? Replacing the current one with some tubing and want to be right but cant seem to find this anywhere. I have a brembo 19x18 MC. Any help would be appreciated.


Brian

Thanks Strider but the image doesnt show the length from the MC to the Break Reservoir. I imagine it would only be maybe 3.5-4 inches.

Whoops, sorry, I misread your question. I thought you meant from the master cylinder to the calipers.

From the reservoir to the master cylinder it is a 2.5" hose.

Edit: I just updated the image for you as well.

Fat fingered the hell out of it and couldnt figure out how to edit the title so I determined my time was better spent actually cutting a new break line than figuring out how to edit a title on the forum lol
