  • Fuel Line Diameter for New Electric Fuel Pump

    Just picked up one of Hord’s new electric fuel pumps. Pump’s fitting is a bit larger than prior but JD says he just went down to the hardware store and bought some Tygon line and stretched to fit, so I’m just gonna order some on Amazon.


    What diameter fuel line do we use on the bike? Inner diameter / outer diameter?​

    -P.
    I need a bigger garage.

    It's a dirty job but someone's got to do it.

    I've always used 5/16" inner diameter line.

      3/16” inner diameter, 5/16” outer diameter, 1/16” wall thickness?

      That about right?

          Don’t just order Tygon off Amazon. Make certain it is fuel resistant. I get mine thru McMaster-Carr, but looks like Talon is on the right path…

          Bike builds can be and most time are art and expression. To take something mass produced and impersonal and make something personal that you can't stop staring at as you walk away. There is nothing I find more satisfying than looking at something cool and beautiful and thinking "I made that". - 6

            I buy everything I can from KurveyGirl before looking to larger distributors.

              I just go to Chuck's house when I need fuel line so I have no idea
              Don't spend money and buy, spend time and learn.

                  As far as durability and flexibility, this is the best stuff I've used:

                    I went off Talon’s original post and went with Motion Pro. I love the translucent neon line but was concerned about ethanol compatibility from what I’d been finding.

                    Thank you for the responses. The Forum never disappoints!
