How To Specify A Hose
Many people will ring up and ask for a 'standard hose' with 'standard fittings', unfortunately although there are 'standards' of manufacturing components, different manufacturers of vehicles will specify different standards for different vehicles. If that makes sense. For instance a bike manufacturer may decide to use an M10 x 1.0mm thread on it's calipers one year and then use an M10 x 1.25mm thread another year, and the reasons will be up to them.
So for the purposes of specifying a special hose we need to know certain things.
We need to know the hose length, probably the easiest bit, please see below how to specify the hose length.
We also need to know which fittings you need at each end, that will consist of either:
Male - including thread size and convex or concave seat
Female - including thread size and convex or concave seat
Banjo - including size, straight or angled(20, 30, 45, 70, 90 degrees standard bend or side bend)
If you have a banjo at both ends we also need to know the orientation of the banjos to each other.
