ok,ill disagree with the guys.............So I bought some new fuel line, hose clamps and a filter. Question--does the length of the line matter? Is there a too long/too short that will affect performance?
ok,ill disagree with the guys.............
too short........it wont meet,fuel on the floor
too long.....youl end up with a bend/kink you do not want.there is not much play between your tank petcock and your carbs.it has to be right.
after sleeping on it,ill have to correct myself as well.Totally agree....to make mine fit better with the filter I simply turned my petcock about 45 degrees toward the back (normally it faces the side of the bike)...works great for 2 years now. You can kind of see how I have my petcock turned in the close up pic of my carbs and valve cover in my sig below.
These are the ones I like but it could be a trick to find them. It's a K&N 90 degree filter. Well worth ordering if you cant find them locally. Don't get mesh filters get stone filters. They are a lot better.
When I first got my bike I removed that "finger screen" from the inside of the tank....never replaced it since I have the inline filter...no harm done.
Thinking about removing the petcock finger screen in the tank, and
mounting a common Toyota Pickup paper element fuel filter below
fuel tank level & above the carb level, above the battery & behind
the side panel.
