    If you have any of the OEM T fittings, there are (2) 1/4" and (1) 5/16" nipples on one T fitting. Using these helps to fit both size fuel lines. Or in my case, the Tygon lines were stretchy enough to fit on the petcock.

    I use quick disconnects from Motion Pro to make pulling the tank easier. Using small 4" zip ties to anchor the lines on the fittings help eliminate leaks.

    I use 5/16 from the petcock to the fuel filter. Filter outlet is stepped so i run 1/4 to the mikuni and then 1/4 to the carbs.

    IIRC, the petcock, the fuel pump and the tee at the carburetors all fit better with 5/16". in fact the only stock connection that gives trouble is one side of the stock fuel filter. If you replace that with an aftermarket 5/16" OD filter, then everything will be one size.
    It's been a while since I've had to do anything to the fuel lines, so whatever size I used qas perfect... and I'm almost positive (but by memory alone), it was 5/16 ID.

    Just wondering if you can help me. Figuring out the size of the fuel lines. Been scouring the net for the sizes. I'm currently away from home and my bike and taking this time to order things online so when I get home it will keep me busy.
    Thanks for checking my build. I always buy yellow Tygon. The last batch I ordered was this size: Tygon Fuel Line 1/4" ID X 3/8" OD

    Thanks! Like I said before, its a forum bike! It's been an awesome journey and I'm very grateful for all those that gave advice and generosity! I'll have a build sheet before it's done with all those that gave parts, sold parts and helped along the way.

    If the adhesive doesn't stick, a little 3M automotive trim spray will do it.

    Got it yesterday - thanks again! Gifts from Bill! I'm more excited about the frame decals than the other stuff but it will all go to good use!

    The former but with paper. There is still enough extra material to trim off so I can get it even. It doesn't have to be exact as the foam will dictate the edge more than the pan.

    I found an RSV4 foam and cover for a good price. No cheap Pani seats tho!
