Hello sorry if this was already posted but i could not find it.
I am trying to pinch my brake line to see if my master cylinder or brake cylinders are leaking.
BUT the line seems to be hard to pinch off.. can the lines on my bike be pinched off or is there a flexable solid tubing inside that i will damage? Ps i am trying to pinch the flexable line not the obvious solid lines.

I believe this image shows what the OP is talking about, (pinching the brake line) you want damage the rubber part of the brake line, i would slip some short pieces of rubber line over the ends of the pliers , or wrap them in black tape
