New Master Cylinder Quandry

I'm fitting my Accossata M/C onto the new 2018 GSXR1000 and hit a problem. The plastic tube from the standard fluid reservoir is 8mm. But the new master cylinder accepts a 7mm pipe

I fitted it onto my previous 2013 model somehow. They also have the 8mm reservoir pipe.

I had to take it off the 2013 model 4 months ago to get it through the yearly ITV test (MOT) as it has no brake light.

I'm stumped what to do. Wish I could remember how I did it before.


Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelp

I had a similar problem on my K6. See #4 here for a solution.

Don't forget the clamp.

P.S. You're not doing it but, for the record, you shouldn't use any rubber hose. See this.
