    There's some fuel hose on Ebay, but, everyone is partial to Tygon. It's more expensive, but supposed to be very resistant to kinking. I'm not sure where to get it at. Someone will post it, I have a feeling.

    Brian at Ultimate Performance has the good stuff, a few colors as well.
    His contact info is above in the vendors section.

    don't use the ebay stuff that's like $8. it is polyurethane and won't last a season.

    I use the goodyear fuel line that is at most hardware stores. cheap, easy to find, and lasts pretty much forever. Just doesn't look as cool.

    Tygon is what you want if it has to be transparent

    I put one of those RAS racing kits on the 650/750. It has the round triple outlet and blue transparent hose. It's the stuff that's like $18-20 for 20 ft. Is that the stuff you guys are saying is crap?
