K6 gsxr 1000 rear brake REZ hose specs

Anyone know what kind of rubber tubing I need to replace that goes from the rear brake rez, to the rear master? I put vortex rearsets on my bike and the factory hose isnt long enough for me to remount the rez on the subframe where it is supposed to go. I need longer hose.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I would, but the hose is easier. I have to bleed the brakes anyway because the brake light switches for the vortex rearsets is a pressure switch that replaces the banjo fitting on the master, so I got air into the system when I installed it. I dont mind bleeding, it takes me about 5 minutes to bleed, so in my case I think the hose is easier to replace.

The issue is that the brake fluid resistant hose in that diameter isn't readily available.

I've used the clear type of line in a pinch, but over time it deteriorates.

oh, thats what I was afraid of. I have spare hose left over from a subframe I bought from california that had the smog canister under the tail section. I kept the hose from that. I wonder if this hose will work since it is likely fuel proof.

In the meantime, Im going to look for a piece of aluminum I can fab to move the rez back a bit.
