Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Size of Vaccum Hose

Post by MegaChops on Fri 08 Sep 2017, 11:52 am

Hi All, 

New to the forum but I've been doing up a CB500 project for the last 6 months and shes nearly ready for the MOT. I just need a bit of help with the last couple of bits,

The Vacuum hose (the clear tube from the tank to the left side of the carb) does anyone know the diameter the tube needs to be?

I need to change the brake fluid but the front master cylinder screws dont want to come out(back brake is drum), any tips or suggestions to help with this?

Thanks in advance.

Plus (in case you don't know) the original tube isn't clear - it's black.  I suspect that if it is clear then it may have been replaced with car window washer/sprayer hose (IME it is a similar diameter) - this will work for a bit but isn't a good idea as it will degrade faster than 'real' petrol-proof hose.
