Talk to me about your hose.

No not that hose.

What kind of fuel line do you guys use. I have tried a few.

soft neon green stuff from treats was great at first then it got hard and started to leak.

Re: Talk to me about your hose.

The tygon hose treats has is really nice. It's kinda pricey though.

Re: Talk to me about your hose.

I use the black automotive style line from the auto parts store.

Re: Talk to me about your hose.

I've used all of them. They all have pros and cons. I like the clear stuff so I can watch the fuel flow; just don't plan on never removing it. I like the super durable reinforced rubber stuff cause it outlasts the moped and doesn't harden over time.

So I like to run clear from the filter to the carb (never ever take it off) and something that can be removed and reinstalled many times from valve to filter.

Cool thanks for the input, it seems to always be one area that I'm having issues on a bike.

Re: Talk to me about your hose.

clear filter solid auto store line for best of both worlds.

tygon is real nice but i'm always worried it's gonna come off. doesn't grip grip like decaying clear line does.

Re: Talk to me about your hose.

I use clear filters, usually the giant paper john deere filters in lowes, but they get cloudy before they need to be replaced. I don't clean gas tanks anymore, I just use ethanol treatment and stick with paper.

Blue Tygon from Rural King. Comes in 10' lengths. I stocked up on it when I was in Florida a few weeks ago.

Re: Talk to me about your hose.

black rubber shit from auto parts stores. it's "not bad."

Re: Talk to me about your hose.

I used the black auto parts stuff at first, then went to clear PVC so I could see the flow, now I'm back to black rubber because the PVC gets hard and cracks.

Haven't tried tygon yet.

All the reviews about tygon by people using it on their weed eaters say it gets hard and leaks...
