I know this is an old thread but I am trying to figure out how to secure the stock Res when I cut down the OE brake line. I don't want to eliminate it just clean it up a bit. Does anyone have any pics that show detail of how they secured it?

Thanks EZ. That looks really clean. I was thinking more of the OE res. I don't want to spend any $ for a new res...

Damnit. I just looked on his ebay page. Looks like he doesn't have anymore, atleast not in that style. I really like that setup because it bolts right to the m/c

You have a old listing link please post it so we can contact the seller from that products listing and h3 can get some more.

Shark Attack!



Just did this mod. I ordered the tubing about a year ago.
This is what I used: http://www.mcmaster.com/nav/enter.asp?partnum=5103K18
Chemical-Resistant Clear Tygon Tubing 5/16" ID, 7/16" OD, 1/16" Wall Thickness - Part #: 5103K18

This item is no longer available, but the website suggests using part #: 5103K35, which is the same tube, but tygon 2375. Clicking the link above should bring you to the correct site.

All I did was take the stock tubing off the master cylinder, threw my tubing on there, secured it with a zip tie and plugged it with an ear plug. Threw a shark finger puppet it over it to make it more aesthetically pleasing.

Digging up an oldy but goody here, plan on doing this mod, I've adventured the internet high and low and know DOT 4 brake fluid is available in red, but I'll be darned if I can find any that states one way or the other.

Also for people having trouble locating a place to purchase

You can even get the tubing with a Honda cap HERE

After reading through this entire thread, I think I'm just going to shorten the OEM hose and re-use the OEM reservoir for now... Might go with the Brembo or an ebay CNC'd one later for about the same cost as the Tygon hose and cap. I'm still not sold on the hose idea based on various issues people have had.

Thanks to all who contributed to this thread! I'll post pics of my setup when finished.

Personally, I like the aesthetics of the PSR reservoir vs the hose. I also like that the PSR (or even G-craft for that matter) remains tucked away, behind the heel guard, away from exhaust heat. Additionally, since it's not clear, the fluid will not break down from the sun's uv rays like it (potentially) would with the hose.

Different strokes for different folks, but I agree, it is a bit pricey

I'm really sorry to be the thread-necro, but it was this, or starting a new thread...

I got this kit from the Ten Kate Racing Shop
I was thinking, these guys won't sell crap, will they?

It arrived the next day. It includes all the clamps, a backup hose and a cap with a breather hole. But the kit has a label on it : "Change the hose every two months, or when sweating"
So I was wondering, whoever has this tube setup, either HRC, Tygon 2075/2375, or Ten Kate. Is your tube sweating?

I love the look of it, but I'm kinda lazy :P

Ok, so since I necro'ed this thread, I might as well post an update.
I did the mod.

Like I said I got a kit from Ten Kate Racing, but as they said it would bleed, I also got me 2ft of Tygon 2375 tubing from Kurvey Girl.

So I was going to use the tygon tubing with the parts from TKR, but the Tygon is a little smaller in diameter than the TKR tube, so they didn't fit. Ended up using the TKR tube.
I'll get me some smaller tube clamps and swap the tube for Tygon when this one starts to bleed.

Took the oportunity to clean up the subframe as well, and ground of the pin which holds the heat shield and the bracket which holds the reservoir.

Looks good. You going to do anything with the subframe, plastidip or powdercoat? I removed the passenger peg bolts and put plastic pushpins from an auto parts store.

Yup, will plastidip the visible parts. Good idea to use those push-ins... Might do that!

Necro-thread....


My rear reservoir took a blow and developed a crack on the bottom at the nipple. The reservoir naturally drained itself all over my rear tire and swing arm.... cleaned up the leaked fluid, plugged the OEM line and threw a rubber band around it to secure it to the original mount point. Works like a charm.

*Might go the extra mile and replace the rubber band with a black zip-tie... I dunno. Seems like a lot of work.

Gracias
