Broken Fuel Line on 1999 K1200LT
I was hoping to take a trip to upper Michigan before I need to go back to work, but I noticed a fuel leak the other day as luck would have it. When I removed the side cover, it seems the return fuel line (pictured) ruptured. I have 2 questions-
1) Looking at the fuel hose replacement procedure in my Clymer's manual, it looks time consuming and a little complicated removing the throttle body, etc.... I looked around the technical docs on this site and didn't see another set of instructions. Any advice on the best way to get it done with the least hassle. I would prefer to do it myself, but not if it's going to take me a really long time. I replaced my brake lines last fall with some good advice from this forum on brake bleeding.
2) Can I add a metal connector between the two broken ends with a couple hose clamps to get by until next spring and still be able to go for the ride?
