The Tygon tubing from McMaster Carr has been recommended for fuel line replacement. Perhaps it would be a good choice for the oil lines as well, 5552K23 and 5552K25.

I was actually wondering the same thing myself.
are the oil lines in a 93 sl650 1/4" or 3/16"?
and can you use gas lines as oil lines?

Make sure you use good clamps. Cheap gear clamps tend to create a gap under the gear, and not actually seal evenly all the way around.
Use good quality hose clamps on fuel and oil lines
They look good, stay snug, and will not leak over time
Oetiker Stainless Steel hose clamps
Stepless Ear clamps - professional hose clamping
Gap-Free Ear type hose clamps
52545K53 or 52545K51 will clamp 1/4" ID fuel line (12mm OD)
52545k26 or 52545K38 will clamp 1/8" ID oil lines (7mm OD)
One online source for fuel and oil lines
