Fuel line T's

I'm looking for fuel line T's that I don't have to pay an arm and leg for?

rappin,

If you actually mean the tees in the lines, I got mine from my local Ace Hardware. They're made of brass and they were not expensive.


If you mean the tees between carburetors, see the previous post.

Here's another fix for the tee between carbs that I copied from another forum:

The original "T" can be reclaimed and used again.

1. Start by stripping the rubber coating off of it.
2. Then, cut two sections of 1/4 Neoprene gas line and insert them into the cab inlets.
3. Start to press the "T" into the Neoprene inserts in each carb
4. Use a clamp to squeeze the carbs together.
5. Check the length of the Neoprene sections to ensure they are not collapsing in the carb inlets.

Yeah, I will probably go with those if I ever need to replace mine.

Thanks for the info. Nice video. Also the arm & leg $14.00 is alot better than $41.00 from ebay or $60.00 from Yamaha.
I gues this is what I get for letting the bike set for 2 years. Shame on me.
