    Fuel line replacement

    Where is the best place to get some fuel line to replace all the grey stuff and what size line is it. About how much should I get to do a complete ski over??

    Any auto parts store should have fuel line.

    approx 14 ft of 5/16 & 6 foot of 1/4 for each ski you have listed in your signature.

    If you look closely both his skis are 951's. They use mostly 5/16" fuel line like Worx said.

    You should use NMMA approved fuel line. There is a difference between automotive and marine fuel hose, also If you don't have the right tool for the clamps and replace the stockers with "screw clamps", use stainless. Small hoses are 6mm and large are 8mm?? If I remember correctly. Hope this helps.

    Been using automotive fuel line for years & it works great & its half the price.

    People shouldn't speed either but they do.

    The only difference between marine and automotive is the chafing resistance on the marine line. This apparently causes the breakdown of the inside too, which is why we use automotive. Just a little history and the reason why we use what we use...

    All good stuff thanks guys I have to pull the motor out of the GSX for a noise to check everything in it. Better safe than sorry about things like that. You can rebuild a whole 2 stroke for about 500 bucks if you do it yourself but I bet you would spend that much minimum if you put a rod through a case just for the case. It kind of sounds like a rod knock in a 4 stroke the guy at the dealer said he thought it sounded like piston slap but that the cranks had issues too so I might as well pull it check the bearings and have the lobe timing checked do they weld them in place like a snowmobile motor?????
