    Fuel and oil line replacements

    While my carbs are off, I want to replace all the fuel and oil lines.
    Are there some simple spools of fuel and oil lines that I can buy to
    just cut off pieces as necessary instead of trying to buy a bunch of
    individual parts (which I assume would be more expensive)?

    you buy it by the foot.. you can use normal automotive fuel line.. but marine grade is recomended.. your going to want about 20 feet of fuel line..

    you can get the fuel line at a auto store or order it online.. oil line you might have to order it. i have not found oil line in the stores.. there used to be a great site called fuellines.biz but they changed web addresses so you might want to do a search on here to find it.

    The oil line is 3mm id and 7mm od. it has thick walls to prevent it from collapsing.

    You want US Coast Guard approved black fuel line or the clear colored line Ryan mentioned.

    My winter project is getting rid of the Tempo lines on my SLX, and using the black rubber Coast Guard approved line, but I have been unable to find that stuff anywhere. I am sure I am not alone and wonder if anyone can post a place that sells it.

    Thanks in advance.

    IMO way over priced, I also heard they don't really support the pwc ers and could care less about their place on the water, just what I heard.

    If you need fuel line hose go to NAPA and buy a spool of it. Multiple sizes available and the spool is 25ft if I recall - buy a while spool - they sell them. I use this stuff on all my skis - great hose - Had it some of my older skis for 8 years and it is still like new and no deterioration inside or out.
