    Default fuel lines

    Hi Every One,


    I am trying to finish up on my projects for my seadoos before the start of the season here in Michigan, can anyone give me a suggestion on which fuel lines to purchase for a 97 XP and 97 GSX from everything I hear and read it is not wise to continue riding with the old grey oem lines still installed. Keep in mind I am just looking for something that work well but not overly expensive or colorful.



    Thanks

    Default Simple and cheap!

    I got a simple solution for you. It's the same solution I used. Get a piece of your fuel line you want to replace (I think it's 1/4" ID) and carry it up to your local "Autozone" or any other automotive parts house and ask them for fuel line of the same size.
    Fuel line isn't a specialty item. Neither is your water hose. If it's showing signs of aging, buy a foot or so of 1/2" to replace the piece between your heads and your exhaust. That's the piece that usually gets hot and stiffens up on you............so, there is a cheap fix in something on these things!..
    Looking for tips and advice, researched articles on carbs, spark plugs and general maintenance can be found at Snipes Korner. You can also follow me on "Twitter".

    Quality parts at low prices, visit Seadoowarehouse right here in our own forum. Please PM me if you are having a problem finding what you need!

    Is your jet ski fast? Do you want your XP or RXP to stand out? I know a place that has what you need to make it faster. Make your jetsksi a muscle craft, not just the ordinary, standard stock ski.

    Seen my GTX?... Those awesome graphics can be purchased from JetSki Detailing. Tell them Seadooforum sent you.

    Ever wonder what the inside of your 787cc engine looks like. Want to identify the parts, check out my thread on the 787. I'm sure there is something for everyone who want to learn about the internal parts.

    Thanks for the quick response seadoosnipe, I will take a piece off and run it up to my auto store. How much should I buy for both craft and should the old clamps still be ok or should i replace them with new ones or you zip ties?




    Thanks Again

    I would recommend you use new stainless steel clamps. Zip ties work good on small 1/4" carb lines, but not on water or gas lines.

    Default New fuel lines....

    I bought new clamps with my new lines because it's really important to make sure you get a good seal, so your not taking a chance of vapor locking. As for the amount you need. I have a boat, so I'm not to sure on your PWC.....but I could suggest you take a tape measure and do a rough measure to get close, then add a couple more inches to be sure. It's really pretty cheap.
    Good luck, let me know if you need anything else...........
