I need a little help on this one.

First, the story. This sunday's race was a real mudfest. When I got to this huge uphill, with bikes thrown all over I found my brother was there trying to go up for the umpteenth time. So we went together. Long story short: I got up (with his help) and then went walking down to help him. lifted the bike, then slipped and as I was falling I grabbed the brake line. The darn thing broke just where it goes into the master cilinder.

Now the question. There is no way I can get a OEM part, so I need some kind of substitute. The bike is a Husky 360 wr, and the brake is a nissin. I can get a TM brake line (also Nissin) but the things can be very specific (length and connections). What can use? Honda CR? TM?

Thanks.

This is just a post to push it to the top. I really need an answer, as I'm buying the thing tomorrow.

Thanks

In situation like this i get the yellow pages out and look up local hydraulic suppliers and normally you can get a similar part for a tenth of the cost.

You need to get to a local braided steel pipe specialist.They should be able to put together a replacement pipe.The Nissin type is 6mm diameter with 10mm Banjo's.Just measure the lenghth of the pipe & give these details to the pipe maker.My 94 TC 610 brake pipe was about 1.5m approx.
Or match up the pipe with Honds XR or equivelent as these have similar Nissin's to the Husky's.
