friebe fuel cell with quick disconnect fuel lines !!!!!
i have had people ask me about the fuel line quick disconnects that i am using for the friebe fuel cell.

i have alot of extra fuel line for the supply line going from the friebe fuel cell to the main tank.
when putting the tank in i make sure the fuel line is not kinked. it actually has so much slack in there it does a loop or two. reason being the tank is not as deep as the one for the fzr.
i probably have a foot of extra fuel line that lets it be kink free.........
this setup allows fast and easy removal of the fuel cell for maintance and checking the water lines coming into the hull as well as cleaning the groco filter.
if i need to get thicker fuel line in the future it is easy to switch the connectors. but, so far the lines are flawless.

can You tell me please where did you get the couplers and the tubing? thanks

Similar to my setup. I got the couplers from quickcouplings.net 1/4 barbed PMC couplings with female end valved, so if I have to take the tank out with fuel in it it won't pour out. They were the cheapest, $5 or so compared with $20 or more on motorcycle sites for the same fittings. I bought fuel line from Napa locally. I also tied up the vent valves in a vertical position after reading about some people having problems with collapsing the main tank. I've been running this setup for months with no problems. Question, how many gallons can you get in your fuel cells? My cell only holds 5 gallons but with the cell in and open, I'm able to squeeze almost two gallons more in the main tank without puking fuel out of the filler. I have my lines cut to fit so it makes a nice loop near the back of the ski when the tank isn't installed and when it is the lines aren't super long to flop all over the place, since I ride offshore quite a bit.
