LOL Im just being an idiot. The method you are using is far more realistic. Actually this is on my daily rider. 13,000 miles now. I think I have looked at it twice in that period. Rock solid. I made the plunger assembly linkage (Ti, Magnesium) and a 7075 rod end. The master cylinder is about $1200.00. It is a pretty damn cool piece.

Dont mind the size. I just copy and paste one quickly. I have to go check which size tubing I got.

I used to run 2375 it works ok on front but guaranteed will melt in the rear the heat coming off the header will eventually melt it. I have it happen too many times I switched everything over to EPDM tubing holds up better to the fluid and heat.

For sure about the heat. The Tygon LP1500 is designed for fuel and oil. So the type of fluid is not an issue.

I had the Tygon 2375 on my bike for over a year on some really hot days and never an issue on the rear reservoir as there is enough airflow. I do not ride in traffic very often. But on the dyno with minimal airflow the 2375 did fail after about 2 hours of dyno tuning. On the Dyno it was the heat off the exhaust that did the damage. It is much closer than the vertical cylinder.

In my experience when you are moving it is not a problem.

The LP1500 is a 42% increase in Maximum operating temperature.

Check out the handy maths link and input the values. MOT for 2375 = 130 deg and MOT for LP1500 is 185 degrees F.
