Nug's fuel line re-route

Postby ladder106 » Thu May 28, 2015 4:15 am

While assembling my modded airbox, I decided that this would be a good time to try Nug's fuel line re-routing plan.

It works well.

Since I'm likely to be removing tanks to mess about with carbs with the new airbox, I wanted to be able to separate the tanks without clamps or leaking fuel all over the shop.

I was able to fit the disconnect valve from under the tank to the space right in front of the rear fuel tank bracket.

Some photos:

Many thanks for the idea, Nuggie

Well done ladder. The standard disconnect fits in there better than I imagined. I have my adaptor protected by dense foam just be on the safe side. I am a bit OCD about pipes & wires chafing on things (comes from my time building Airport crash tenders & Military trucks). It does work well for me & i hope its good for you mate :tup:

So would you suggest wrapping the connection in something to keep it from bouncing around?

Suggestions?

I know but it was a fun few hours. That piece weighed just over 3/4 pound. I was able to take it down to just under 1/2 pound with the "drillium" technique and a hole saw. I don't think it's lost any strength for what it does.

Planning the same treatment for the "boat anchor" front tank mount

Yes ladder I would give it some sort of protection & support as vibes can do damage pretty quickly. You should see the state of my teabags that have been bouncing around in my topbox for ages :lolno:
