    Fuel/Oil Lines question

    Sorry, I am using the search function believe it or not lol.

    What size fuel line hose do I need and how much of it? And if possible the same question for the oil lines as well. I'm realizing fast that must be done before major damage happens....

    for a 1996 Polaris SL900

    Thanks

    Ok so I see the lines coming out of the top of the gas tank are 1/4" lines (writing on side says so), yet the outside diameter is 1/2" so I'm guessing that 1/4" is the inside diameter. Right?

    So the lines coming in/out of the Carbs, I'm not sure if the outside diameter is 1/4" or 5/16" but when i try to measure one the outer width and it seems like 1/4" or 5/16.

    Question #1: If I order fuel line online and I ask for 1/4" that will be for the lines coming out of the fuel tank, right, the ones with the outside diameter of 1/2"?
    Question #2: When I order online for the lines for carb, what do I ask for as to the smaller lines on the carbs? they are definitely smaller outer diameter than the 1/4" coming from the tank....Which ends up being 1/2" outer diameter.

    I need to order 2 sizes of line i'm just a little Confused..

    All the fuel and vent lines for polaris are 1/4 inch. And the small lines for inbetween the carbs are 1/8 inch. You should only buy marine grade lines, don't cheap out on a very important part of your pwc

    1/8" would be the oil hoses, no?

    OEM oil hose inside diameter is actually 3mm but the common substitute is 1/8"
