Fuel hose?

Postby JamesL » Wed Sep 20, 2017 9:46 pm

Another take on stale fuel. .. I'm looking to replace the fuel hose again on the R100RS. Only did it a couple of years back and it's already failing on one side where it pushes on to the pet cock. Last time I got some standard braided hose from Motorworks but I'm rather losing confidence. I'm looking for something which is resistant to rotting / ethanol, and I quite like the idea of blinging up further with stainless braided. So, any thoughts on material anyone? If I go for stainless braided do I need any special fittings or should it simply push fit as at present?

PS it's gravity feed to carbs so no pressure issues...

Ta vm, James

I'd go for an oe type supplier "Gates" for example , use fuel line with a 3225- prefix ,

The 4324 prefix series Gates hose is externally braided but actually a lower spec than the above.
