Tip for getting new Fuel hose

I know many of you will be looking to do some winter up keep/ repairs. This will include the fuel hose in the tank if you have not done it. Quite a few have used the hose from Euro Moto Electrics, the FP Hose Kit. It seems that this kit works very well and is designed for fuel use in the K-Bikes.
So, if you order directly from EME you will need to make a minimum order of $20 and the shipping is as much as the kit. However, EME has an Amazon listing for the same part. Same price, but shipping is only $5.
So, save almost $10 and get it through Amazon, EME still sells it and you save money.

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!”

Re: Tip for getting new Fuel hose

I went with the OME the curved hose and a good submersiable gates straight hose from auto store I was not okay with clamping down the thin plastic like one from EME to that slipper tubing The curved one makes so much easier to do and plus you do not want to go back in there to put it back on

No good reason to shy away from it as I looked in the tank on my 09 K1300GT and it has the corrugated hose on the internals from the factory.
