Fuel disconnects procrastination
I bought the Jiffy Tite quick connects a couple of months ago, not cheap, then put them in the cupboard with a view I would get to them when I had time.
Today I found myself with time and changed them over. What I discovered was that as I handled the lines, one broke. I believe that it was fractured and air was leaking into the system as I noticed a change in performance during my ride yesterday.
Long winded this might be, if you have this on your list of TO DO'S, don't delay. You may find yourself on the side of the road with fuel spilling out.
For the old hands they will sigh and say we know this. For the new owners it is a heads up to what we need to do to keep our machines reliable.
