    Hose size for brake bleed?

    What size tubing do I need to do a brake bleed? I'm going to try to install my SportBars tonight. Is there any type of hose I should avoid (like that might be dissolved by brake fluid)?

    Thanks.

    I actually just flushed out my brakes a couple of days ago... I used 3/16" clear flexible plastic tubing... Picked it up at a local hardware store for under $2.00...
