Hi,

Does anybody know the right size of fuel pipe to fit my 97 Sprint, I want to make up an aux fuel tank so that I can remove the tank in order to balence the carbs?

I just can't do it quickly enough with what's left in the float chambers.

Thanks
Steve

I've just replaced the fuel lines on my 91 Trident with 8mm (ie 5/16") ID automotive fuel hose from a car parts dealer.. £5 for 50cm, but you can get it on ebay for £1.80/metre. Tight fit onto the petcock because of the thick walls on automotive hose.

Can you just get a length and a T-piece and couple the bike up the the removed tank?

Thanks Guy's,

I must admit I didn't think of that option, maybe using the original tank will be the cheapest and easiest way to go :)

Cheers
Steve
