|As I was checking the rear wiring re: my turn signal issue, I started taking more parts off and noticed that my fuel lines are cracked. This is likely due to the age but also likely to the crappy ethanol in our gasoline over here in California.
So here are my questions du jour.
1. Are these lines the same as the 1000cc Multistradas or are they Bimota specific?
2. Can I cut off the fuel clamps, change the hoses to some BMW silicone hose and install new crimp fuel clamps? If so, how do the lines come off the throttle bodies as I assume the tank ends are quick couplers?
3. Where do I find the tool and clamps for the new hoses?
4. Is there a specific pressure requirement for the hoses and clamps?
Thanks in advance.
