PostSubject: Fuel hose to tank   Sun Jan 04, 2015 1:14 pm

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.

Change over to rubber fuel hose, no pain involved.
Mine had been done prior my ownership, I replaced the cheap shit lines and clamps with decent ones.
Line is 5/16" or 8mm from memory.

I replaced the quick connect on my 08 BMW k1200 GT with the quick connect kit from Beemer Boneyard it's an excellent part. I agree with mark III, go with a replacement rubber fuel line, it will slip easily over the barbs and last a long time.
