    Aftermarket clear and translucent fuel lines are not rated for vacuum and can collapse when used in a vacuum application. You would be better to use original Yamaha fuel line which is much thicker wall, or go to automotive store and get 1/4" auto vacuum line. It is not expensive.

    A lot of guys use the clear line, but I try an use the original as much as I can. Is your orginal bad or deteriorated, I have not seem to many with bad orginal line, it seems pretty tough.

    I use clear and colored lines. Your not sucking with vaccum power, it is a small pulse. Been using it for years no trouble. But if you are really anal go buy the oem stuff. I will buy the clear or colored and spend the rest of the money on beer for the weekend. lol.

    I was not suggesting buying "new" Yamaha lines, I suggested auto parts line for the vacuum line. I was only suggesting to reuse the original lines if decent, because they are high quality and I haven't seen many of them go bad.
