Replacing Fuel Hoses
« on: April 02, 2020, 06:48:57 PM »
Going through a service to pass the time.
Changed oil and filter and cleaned up the brake parts.
Puzzled that the schedule says to replace fuel hoses every 4 years.
Not sure which hoses need to be changed.

Has anybody done this and has a list of part numbers?

A bit scunnered as it means lifting the tank.

On my last Triumph the fuel hoses had special crimped on speed lock connectors. So I'm guessing you would have to replace with genuine OEM hoses. I never replaced mine but had to replace the O rings a couple of times as they would fall to bits after a couple of tank removals.
Strangely enough, when the main dealer had it in for valve replacement, it leaked fuel. When I asked why, they said they don't replace the O rings on the fuel lines unless specifically asked  :005:

Needless to say that main dealer lost their licence not long after and now sells dodgy Chinese scooters.

Do you happen to know the size for o-rings?

Off hand I wouldn't have a clue.

I bought a box of assorted O rings off eBay and used the closest fit. But the Tiger has a completely different style of fuel hose fitting to my last Triumph.

I was surprised to see this as a service item.  When I did a 66,000 miles service on my '13 XC I looked on WoT website was shocked at the price of the hose!
In the event I didn't change it, and as said above, keep an eye for leaking.
