Size of the Gas tank hoses

Does anyone know the diameter of the Rubber Hose that goes
on the Gas Tank? I have to get extra long hoses So I can dismount
the Gas Tank but keep it feeding the engine while I find a broken
wire that's is normally under the Gas Tank.

well a couple of issues there are 3 hoses 1 vac and 2 gas i believe the fuel is 3/8 and the vac is 1/4 not 100 percent sure??? another thing u can do is get a couple funnels and a couple zip ties and create mini fuel tanks ... u should be able to get 10 min or so of idle just in the carb bowls be sure and plug the vac line for it wont run right.... and its not fun to thread the carbs with new hoses with them still on the bike... another trick is to rotate the tank and set it on some crates right next to the bike but facing the other way... the vent hose is a longer and u can probably use that hose to hook up the tank off the bike and leave the vent open at the carbs be sure and hook it back up when your done though...

what wire are u chasing?? u can use a ohm meter or continuity tester and follow the wire from both ends until u find the break...
