    Default Where can I get the correct fuel line? 83' GS750ES

    The Suzuki online parts fiche says it's part# 09352-70103-00B and they call it "Breather Hose" but it is meant to be used for 'fuel hose'.I'm sure it's the exact size I need.Do you know of another online source for this size ?

    I would rather trust my bike to a "QUACK" that KNOWS how to fix it rather than a book worm that THINKS HE KNOWS how to fix it.

    It's not hard to order from any of the online parts suppliers.

    I know the price seems to be awfully expensive for you, but you get about 6 feet of hose for that price.
    If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space.

    I'd go with something that's guaranteed to be newer and not New Old Stock.
    I bought some NOS Suzuki fuel hose and it fell apart within a year. Not a counterfeit, as far as I know, just old stuff that had degraded at the back of a bike shop somewhere before being punted out on ebay. It came in the proper bag with ID part numbers, etc, and certainly behaved like the real thing at first, right up until it split lengthwise. I'm just glad it happened during a normal inspection and not out on the road.
    Apart from degradation from age, I suspect the OEM hose wasn't resistant to modern fuels. That hose I bought could have been 30 years old.
    The Niche Cycle hose looks good to me, but my next fuel hose purchase will be Tygon from Aircraft Spruce - you can be sure of what you're getting from them.

    79 XS650SE - Pragmatic Ratter - goes better than a manky old twin should.
    92 XJ900F - Fairly Stock, for now.

    Apparently 7mm is the same size used in some BMW cars .... I have an 83 as well and just popped by a dealership to pick up some from a giant spool they had..... Can't remember what the cost was but it wasn't more than a few dollars .....

    Sounds like a UK issue. In the USA the stock turns over much faster.

    I do have some original BMW airhead fabric covered fuel line from when I work on the 70's R-bikes;I'm going to take the petcock with me to storage,see how that line fits over it.

    It came from a US supplier.
    The seller was unloading a lot of Zuk, Kaw and Yam stuff at the time, I suspected he was buying up NOS from dead dealers.
