Fuel line quick disconnect question

I ordered quick connects and received a pair of 90 degree and a pair of straight one..

I don't have the bike apart yet since I waiting for other parts I've ordered, but the fiche show all the ones on the bike to be straight.

Anyone know if the 90s will work or do I need to send these back for a replacement.??? .

Re: Fuel line quick disconnect question

Should have male/female connectors.. how do the ones you have match up with the 90's?? Where did you order them from?

I recieved a pair of males and a pair of females. The females are 90.

Ordered them from Racer Parts

You want straights. That area where the QDs are installed is pretty limited of space, and the fuel lines are pretty rigid, so I don't think you'd have room to rig up 90 degree portion. Plus, there are already some pretty tight bends in the fuel lines right there.

Yup.. might have pulled from the wrong bin.. I haven't changed mine out yet.

Dick is correct. The "straight" ones are the only way to go.

When I ordered mine, I searched some previous posts. Some of those posts listed part numbers that translated to 90DEG fittings. I had to change the part numbers to get the straight fittings. Sorry, don't have time to look up the reference posts but there are some 90DEG part numbers in some of those threads. Check the Jiffy-Tite Catalog from the racer parts website for part number descriptions.
BTW - Mine work great. I used the same screw type hose clamps I put on the fuel filter from the dealer. Space is really tight and those clamps have some sharp edges. In hindsight, I would put on the crimp type clamps to have a cleaner installation and I don't foresee any reason to remove these fittings. They are great and its nice not to have to worry about changing the orings again. Worth the money for me.

Re: Fuel line quick disconnect question

When you change from the plastic to the metal disconnects can you use the same hose?

Re: Fuel line quick disconnect question

I used the same hose with no problem. Will be OK as long as you don't damage the hose when removing the plastic QD's. (They can be very tight to pull out)

Re: Fuel line quick disconnect question

I actually didn't have the part number on me when I called ... I gave them my year and make and told them what I needed... it may be that they have the wrong part listed in their system

I'll have to call them in the morning .... I called after work and their hours are 9-5 EST so I left a message.
