Fuel Line Protection

11 posts in this topic

Has anyone figured out a way to protect the fuel line on the right side of the bike (14-16 yz450f)? I saw it done on a couple race bikes, but I can't recall if it was in a magazine or online. 

 

My concern is that I dump it on the trail 20 miles from the truck and have the fuel line get snagged on a branch and ripped off. Is it likely? Probably not. But I would like to make it a non-factor.

 

Edit: something like this, but available in the US: http://www.excitemotorsports.com.au/store/genuine-yamaha-products/offroad/mx-competition/yamaha-yz450f-fuel-line-cover-2014-2015

 

I might have to make one.

Call Chaparral and see if they will sell you one like the pic.

I was in a dealership today and noticed on their 450FX that there is now a plastic piece covering the fuel line on that side. You might able to make that work depending on how it attaches to the subframe. I didn't poke around in it enough to see how it is attached.

Think the part number is 2GB-2171X-00-00, #47 on the frame fiche.

 

Good find! I wonder if it snaps in to place or if the FX subframe has holes drilled and tapped for mounting. I'll dig around and see if I can find a picture.

Looks like the subframe are the same so I'm guessing it will work! Definitely gonna put this one on the list. Thanks guys!

That part is a lot more expensive than the one I posted about.  Not sure the difference, but the one you posted looks like what I saw on the bike.

 

I may be ordering something from Rocky Mountain very soon, and if I do I'll order the part I posted since it's only like $6.
