Default Fuel Line Fittings

Do you recomend to change the fuel line fittings imediately, just to avoid the risk ? As a mandatory fix right in the beginning when getting the bike?

James C, could you revise the new link from Omega web site, please.
They up-dated their site and I can't find the serial numbers you recomended in your http://mvfaq.blogspot.com/2005/09/fu...fittings.html?

P/N FT-LCD100-04 - Coupling Body or threaded part that fits into tank
P/N FT-LCD230-06 - Hose Barb or part that fits on hose
?????????unfortunately I can't find them......on the new site.

New link: http://www.omega.com/pptst/ftlc.html

If you recomend to change the fuel line fittings, I would very much appreciate if I may have the exact serial numbers of new part number to order the right thing, as I'm not very familiar with inch system and all these 1/4" numbers make me dizzy

Thank you very much in advance!!!!

Had the tank off once and the MV mechanic broke 'em. Come to think of it, maybe it was the MV mechanic's friend. In any case, the Ducati replacements cost somebody US$50.

Bring on the brass/steel couplings. Who's got the part numbers?

Mine broke while riding at just under 900 miles, without ever having removed the tank.

I am pretty sure that the newer MVs(1000S and Sennas, not sure about Brutale 910s)fuel hoses have a hard/rigid inner lining that those metal fittings will not fit into, I am not sure what year they changed the hose, but the older models(750s) have normal rubber hose that is compatible with the metal fittings.

The best up grade might be to replace the hose with SS braided lines with new metal fittings?

Thanks for the help, I really appreciate it.
Odanata, is what you mean, that if I relpace the fittings I also shoud replace the line, in order to have everything 'on the same level'?
JamesC , do you have any comment about what Odanata said...that the newer models have already an up-grade, like Senna? Same with 910S? Thanks!!!

Not sure I would put metal braided hoses down there as there are an awfull lot of electrics under the fuel tank and the metal outer braid just might rub through something live

The F4 1000 has it according to altoon. I'm not sure about 910 (doubt it) but if so just buy a bit of fuel hose and replace what's on there with normal automotive hose of the same size.

both my f4 1000 S ('05 model), and odonata's Senna ('07?) have a special fuel line between the gas tank and the fuel injection rail input/output.

this fuel line is a two part construction. the inner core is made of a very stiff, fluoropolymer-based material. the outter tube is a softer rubber, with the trade name sunprene. the tube is made by a company called dayco.

this is what dayco has on their website:
http://www.dayco.ca/english/passenge...age2=Injection

but that is not the same stuff that is used in the MV. the MV stuff does not have braided-reinforcement.

i have some great photos of this stuff, which i'll try to put up later.

i should also point out that the 1000cc bikes use a second fitting on the fuel injector rail. this fitting is made by John Guest, and i am trying to get a part number for that item now.
