Longer brake reservoir hose

After installing clipons the hose from the front brake master reservoir to cylinder is too short.

Does anyone know what the inner and outer diameter of the hose is and what are people using as a replacement?

When I installed my RCS master I also bought a brembo bracket bracket kit that came with a clear hose.

If you want black, anything made of EPDM rubber will do. I used coolant reservoir hose, cost about $2 for a ft. Or you can use fuel hose if you want reinforced.

Thanks for the replies. I picked up some Tygon 2375 from McMaster-Carr.
