While removing my tank to do some work, found the quick detach connector at the fuel pump butchered.
Looks like someone has used pliers or similar to try to pull it off and have crushed the connector, it is no longer a quick detach mechanism.
Eventually go it off without breaking the red connector at the fuel pump and now plan to replace the whole poxy connector with a metal quick release device I have been referred to on Beemer Boneyard - [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
I have sourced some EFI fuel hose to go from the connector to the red fuel pump fitting so that is resolved.
My query here is can anyone tell me how hard is it to install a connection in to the standard plastic/nylon? fuel hose if I cut of the old stuffed connector.
I have seen a few videos where people have heated up the hose with boiling water or a heatgun to make it pliable so you can push in the new connector barb.
Has anyone had experience working with this type of hose before and have alternative suggestions.
