Replacement Fuel Lines

Did a quick search... Checked the forum, ebay, rocky mountain atv, and motosport... can't find new fuel lines. Does anyone have any ideas? I have aftermarket in-line fuel filters and I am trying to put my bike back to stock. Having a few issues with it and want to start with this. Let me know if you have any ideas as to where to fine them. Thank you in advance.

Those particular hoses seem incredibly durable to me. You might want to try used on Ebay.

I'm only now with 103,000 miles am replacing with new OEM the fuel lines on my 03/97 VTR due to the effects of our ethanol laced "gasoline". And I also run in-line fuel filters that fit, among several Honda models, a GL-1200; i.e., 3/8" (8.5 mm) ID fuel lines in each hose. So why get rid of them?

I used for a while aftermarket fuel hose but returned to OEM after it split due to the tight bends where it connects on the fuel tap.

I am having a problem with the rear cylinder and carb running dry. As soon as it happens I lift the tank and I can see that the filter is bone dry. I am going to replace the petcock diaphragm, put stock lines back on, and clean and sync the carbs. I figured the filters may be causing a restriction, so I am starting with the basics. Thank you for the reply.

If you didn't already replace the diaphram, that may be the problem and the fuel filter is exacerbating the issue. Or the filter itself it contaminated and is restricting flow. Or your carb is the issue. That being said, there is already a filter on the petcock

Or you can buy nice new fuel line from any auto parts store, elbows, and clamps and put together a nice new setup.

You could also buy some stainless steel quick disconnects (they come in elbows too!) and install those so removing the tank is easier... The QDs are a little pricey, but worth it if you have the tank off a lot. Check on the Duc forums for the ones they use.

These are the fuel filters I use; EMGO used to sell the same filter...

These filters IMO are a must and should be changed every 10,000 miles or annually.

They do not cause a restriction and flow more than adequately based on my use for over 65,000 miles.

Buy 8 pairs and 4 stainless steel hose clamps shipping is free.
