#32773, "Brake lines"




          

Could I use SS fuel lines for brake lines?

you are too vague. Are you referring to braided stainless AN lines? In that case yes if the line rated for high pressure. Braided AN line is not "fuel line" - most people only see it used there.

Get the appropriate adapters and some -3 AN line and do it. Usually more expensive than buying off the shelf braided lines though.

I wouldn't do it. Braided brake hose isn't rated for the same chemicals as fuel line. It might hold the pressure but it probably won't last very long before it starts to rot from the inside.

If you're talking stainless hard line, go for it. Basically the same stuff.

I would probably just buy braided brake lines. I got mine from Road/Race way back. I think they still sell them.

They do, thats where I bought mine.

Which GSX calipers do you have? I think you posted in another thread that you had GSX brakes.

Reason I ask is that you need to tell them whether they are 2g calipers or 1g calipers so they get you the right ones.
