Smile Fuel Hoses

I have a 2006 VN750 with 12,500 miles on it. I am concerned about fuel line replacement from the fuel tank to carbs. Has anyone done this ?? and is it difficult.? Should I take it to a dealer? Appreciate any info on this topic.

Yes, Myself and several others. No it's not. No you shouldn't. The fuel lines aren't very long, and there's only two. If you look at the tank valve where they connect and follow them to the carbs, you'll see there isn't much there. You can buy any length of fuel line (auto parts store) and then cut it to size.

Why do you want to change them? Leaking?

The fuel line switch is easy. Just don't sucker for OEM lines as they are expensive because they are pre cut. Just use generic fuel tubing of the same inner diameter and you'll be fine.
