Ok guys. This might be a dumb question, but I can't find an answer anywhere. Is there such a thing as a steel braided clutch line?

All the manufacturer sites I've checked (spiegler, galfer, etc) make braided brake lines but don't say anything about clutch lines. Are they the same? Can a brake line double as a clutch line?

Thanks for the help (I'm not very mechanically gifted)! :smashfrea:

A braided SS line and/or hose is for lines that contain fluid, for either brakes or hydraulic clutches in the case of a motorcycle. The reason braided SS lines are consider an upgrade is when the brakes or clutch lever are actuated it creates pressure, traditional rubber do not have a sturdy exterior and tend to expand. With SS line you have very little expansion of the line giving a better braking or clutch feel. More of a solid feel in lieu of a spongy feeling lever.
