  • naughty people cut my fuel line

    i parked my bike in my driveway at all times, but today when i was riding to uni my bike suddenly lost power and i couldn throttle anymore so i pulled over to check it out. the engine couldn even start for more than 1 second.. i checked and found that my fuel line's been cut. FK!!

    anyone know how much would it cost to fix it? i need to get a technician to come by to pick the bike up. i left it at uni.

    cut?

    it hasn't warn out, it was cut???????

    Fuel hoses are a pretty easy fix.

      Shouldn't be much at all if it's a carbed bike, just a simple rubber hose.

          Hose didn't pop off the tank or filter did it?

            if you leave your bike at curtin tonight, park it where security is. they have a lock up area i think.

            might be a bit hard to fix now (if you dont have any tubing), but you can just get some hosing, take the tank off (im assuming you just need to undo the seat, then undo the bolts which hold the tank down), replace hose, refill with fuel.

              just buy a small fuel filter and connect the two hoses straight to it
              (use the filter as a hose joiner)

                    Fairings will probably have to come off...2 minute job mate.
                    Filter is a great idea, just gotta do up a couple clamps.

                      Fairings dont have to come off.
                      Bit of a wrist breaker, but CAN be done even without lifting the tank.
                      To lift the tank, open tail/pillion seat, pull the red knob to unlatch the riders seat.

                      Underneath you can see the toolkit, and the singular bolt that holds the tank down.
                      Lift the tank up and its fairly simple.

                        ...you're not looking at the rubber lines that come out the bottom of the bike, are you?
                        I just can't see how you could tell that the fuel line from your tank has been cut if you can't remove your own fairings.
                        Could you take some pictures of the fuel line you think is cut?

                          if its the one that hangs down a bit, IIRC its a vacumn line that feeds the lil fuel pump.
                          The fuel lines stay a bit higher above the frame line.

                            Is the bike new?

                            Did you pay cash for it?

                              okok. will go over and take some pictures tomorrow. i left the bike at the curtin security building at the lockup behind. if its not the fuel line then i wonder what could be the problem. i cant throttle at all and theres a cut tube now dangling. the security guy was the one that told me its the fuel line.
