    PVC Fuel Lines

    I'm about to buy new fuel lines for my GP1200r. I've seen a few pictures around here of guys running clear PVC lines.

    Is this just home depot type PVC 1/4" hose? If so I'll just go down the street and buy some so I can do it this weekend instead of waiting on shipping.

    Can we change the name of the 2 stroke Yamaha section to "Question and answer with Rich and Woody?" I think it be much more fitting... Just a thought

    Although I too have gone to the 4 stroke dark side there will always be a soft spot in my heart for the 2 stroke. I think its great that the two of you guys are keeping it alive! These guys are lucky to have the wealth of knowledge you guys bring to the table.. You guys rock... Even though Woody wont post any f'n vids of his ski running in the water..

    Tommy, Look at these.....

    http://www.mcmaster.com/#5552k25/=8doueu

    http://www.mcmaster.com/

    Fuel and Lubricant Yellow
    Tygon PVC Tubing
    • Temperature Range: –35° to +165° F
    • Wall Hardness: Soft (Shore A: 57)
    Not only will this tubing remain flexible when used with gasoline,
    kerosene, biodiesel, heating oils, cutting compounds, and coolants,
    it also withstands lower temperatures than other fuel and lubricant
    tubing. This tubing is transparent yellow, so you can easily monitor
    the flow of your line. Not rated for sterilization or vacuum.
    To Order : Please specify length from the available lengths listed.

    1 / 4 ID. . . 3 / 8 OD. . . . . . .Part # 5552K25 . . $1.38/ft 10' min

    ################

    DrewNJ recommended these 'zip ties'

    "McMaster has the ties that I have used in the past. 6614K53
    The yellow Tygon line has always worked fine for me in the past for both oil and fuel lines. HOWEVER, do NOT use it on the pulse lines to the carbs. They are to soft. Use the OEM line for the pulse lines."

    ############

    Oil lines are 1/8th inch ID.....part # 5552K23

    Excellent! I'll throw an order into McMaster Carr. I checked with Grainger and they don't have the yellow so I guess I'll just do mail order. No biggie.

    Thanks again guys!
