Another creative fix for the leaking hose that has the bend is to get a long hose and route it around the opposite side. So, crisscross where they go into the head. You’d have to do both.That way there isn’t a tight bend. This comes from GuzziSteve. I was impressed with his idea. I think he said he did it on a Stelio.
I fixed my hose without taking the tank off by just moving things out of the way. Not ideal. It wasn’t easy. Paul Brice described that as doing surgery through a keyhole.....

I used the replacement oem hose which is expensive with regular old hose clamps. If you look at the end that goes into the cylinder, it has quite a bend in it. So that’s where you have to get creative if you get a hose from the auto parts store. Someone here used a 45 degree plastic hose connector to make the bend. You can probably find that thread here some place. Did you see what is leaking yet?

45-degree bend with a plastic fitting; that's clever!

I haven't yet pulled the tank to confirm if it's the nipple or a cracked hose, but in looking up under the removed wing, and when rotating the horn out of the way; it's one of the two. Or both.  [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

When I looked, I did see a cracked hose due to an over-tightened clamp. I just need to push some bikes out of the garage and pull the tank to confirm. You know... procrastination. Very Happy


Anything further on this- diagnosis/repair?

EDIT: *COUGH*/Erm.., a little disconcerting to see this:[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
