I have a 2014 Brutale 1090RR
Will be replacing fuel filter and lines soon. I have the 5/16 Gates submersible fuel line. Will replace all hose clamps. Could someone tell me what size line I need to run to the canister and vent. Should I remove canister. Also how much line.
I plan on ordering the 5/16 CPC Fittings also. I have the gaskets for the bottom plate.
Bike is getting close to 11000 miles and want to change plugs. Should I use iridium NGK plugs or non iridium. New air filter is going in.
Trying to use the search but not having much luck. Be easy on me. This will be the first time I have taken the bike apart.

As always Thanks. Bubba

First of all....your bike has hard plastic fuel lines inside the tank. They do not deteriorate and do not need to be replaced like the older bikes.

A replacement fuel filter comes with new hose clamps, if it is a MV part. If you get the filter from another source you will need the clamps. They are not reusable.
Let me know, I have a bag of them. Just pay postage.

The fuel pump base plate does not use the same quick connectors as the older bikes. Don't order any. It has a single hose connect on an elbow, not know for breaking (unless you are really ham-fisted.

The hoses that are inside the tank for the canister can be re-used when you delete the canister. You will need a plastic 'Y" to tie the cap drain and vent hoses together and some means of plugging the one unused fuel pump plate outlet.

I would suggest Iridium plugs... shop around. All the Japanese brands have them standard in sport bikes.

Your air filter is a washable foam (I think). Unless you want a higher flow race filter (which also usually means more dust passes through) you don't need to replace it.

Would y'all recommend removing the canister? If so what size "Y" will I need and what size plug will I need?
Thanks again Bubba

Wish I was off watch to go to Tennessee again

The hoses in the cap drain system are 6 mm ID, as are the ports on the side of the frame where the external hoses go.
I got 7/32 " vacuum caps and a nylon "Y" at NAPA, but you can probably find them at most auto parts stores.

If I can find the part numbers I will post them. Individual parts are cheap (I got just what I needed, no extras at NAPA on-line store), but usually you have to buy an assortment for many more pennies.

Is it possible to fit the hard plastic lines to an old F4 750 system? Is it a simple swap?

I can remember a gentleman in Spain whose MY10 plastic quick connect elbow did indeed snap off and it was a little demon to extricate the bits of plastic and try to repair it.

I suggested a P clip to support the plastic pipe which cost pennies.

Plastic lines

Before I knew to just reuse the plastic lines, I ordered and used these:

When I changed the fuel filter on my 2013 F4RR I found the plastic hose very stiff and difficult to remove and replace. I managed it without damaging it but I'll have one of these on hand when I do the next change "just in case".
