Acerbis Fuel Line

7 posts in this topic

I'm looking to replace my fuel lines with Tygon, but I have an Acerbis 3.4 tank. When I installed it, I used the line that came with the tank. It looks as though it is 3/16" line, but I'm trying to verify that. No one at Acerbis could tell me yesterday, but not all their people were available for consultation. I want to go to 1/4", but I'm afraid I'll get leakage, and nobody wants that :) . Anybody with an Acerbis tank got some knowledge on this? Thanks much...SC

I just replaced the fuel line on my 03 Wr 450 with the acerbis tank and used 1/4 inch fuel line. there are NO leaks. That skinny hose that comes with the tank when new is awfully small anyway, plus after a while it gets hard and brittle.

I use 1/4" rubber fuel line and added small hose clamps at every connection and a real brass T. The Acerbis hose is too short and plastic Y cracks and leaks with time. :D
