Fuel Tank quick disconnects

I have a 99' that doesn't have the disconnects coming off the fuel tank. I am curious if anyone has used aftermarket quick disconnects of any kind. Stupid winter tear down is going to get expensive.

I replaced the stock plastic ones on my '06 with chrome plated brass shutoff QD's from www.omega.ca (www.omega.com in USA)

Quick Disconnects

Many BMW LT riders have used the Jiffy Tite All metal quick disconnects for this application.

Avialable from www.racerpartswholesale.com (also a forum sponsor/vendor).

Click on the Motorcycle division in the upper right corner of the opening page and gp to the Quick Disconnect tab. You can call and ask for Jack--he also rides a BMW and has talked to a lot of LT riders about these disconnects.

Full disclosure--I own RPW and also ride a LT!

Used these

I have replaced mine with 2x 5478K81 and 2x 5478K121 from www.mcmaster.com

I also ordered a bag of o rings to replace each time I have the tank off(lost part number) also from Mcmaster.

Both those part numbers have shut off valves in both ends.

working like a champ.

I'm getting ready to do my 24k service on my '99. Is it true that no '99s have the quick disconnects?

Ray - as stock OEM, I've never heard of a '99 LT having QDs. Lots have been added aftermarket tho. That might also be true of some of the other BMW lines of scoots, butt not sure about that.

Re: Fuel Tank quick disconnects

Hi,
Beemerboneyard (a supporting vendor also) sells a complete kit for the LT with CPC chrome plated brass fittings, stainless steel internal valving to stop flow when disconnected and Viton fuel resistant O-rings. Kit also includes 4 fuel injection rated hose clamps and a spare pair of replacement Viton O-rings: http://www.beemerboneyard.com/cpcqkdiscon.html .
Full disclosure as well, I am the owner of BByard. Normally I'd put this in the vendor section but looks like other vendors are posting and linking here so I guess it is OK?
Hope this helps, thanks.
Mike

I see they sell both straight and 90 degree versions. It appears yours are the straight version and they appear to fit well. Any problems installing them with the stock fuel lines? Did you use the stock lines?

Stock fuel lines have been used in all the upgrades that I know of.

My 2000 did not have disconnects. I replaced 'em with some BMW plastic ones, and then later replaced those with metal ones after I heard reports of the BMW ones failing.

I got my metal ones from BeemerBoneYard. Nice kit and good solid disconnects.
No relationship with the BoneYard except in my experience they ship quick, communicate well, are easy to do business with. I have purchased service kits, the disconnects from them.

Yeah, highly recommend BeemerBoneYard.

Re: Fuel Tank quick disconnects

I did my 2000 LT today with metal quick connects, and also replaced the lines-both ends look a bit old (103,000) and while I was in there thought it a good idea. I used hose from a local parts place-BMW said that they did not have those lines listed as 'BMW' parts-found that hard to believe, but 5 minutes away or couple hours ride, there was no choice. Hardest part-getting all the tupperware and tank off. The connects were minutes!

I like those crimp clamps. Are the fittings barbed, or do they each have one ridge (?) towards the end?

I put those on along time ago but I think they had just the ridge on the end.
