    Question should i change the fuel lines too?

    i was planning on cleaning the carbs on my g/f's 97 spx tonight due to sporadic loss of power on top end. i assume the carbs are 'gummed up' and causing this miss.

    the local dealer also recommended changing all of the fuel lines ($25), fuel filter ($20) and fuel valve ($30) because of certain chemicals in gas that cause these hoses to break up and clog everything up. if i didnt change everything now, i'd probably just be cleaning it all again real soon.

    any thoughts or help in the matter is greatly appreciated.

    Most definitely change them! I prefer the NAPA black PVC/EEC fuel lines...I run race gas premixed and have never had the delamination problems of the cheap Tempo Marine lines.

    To confirm you have problems...take a small 1/8" blade screwdriver and remove the in line to the carbs. Slip it up inside and drag the flat part against the inside of the hose while pulling out. If you get this brown sticky, gooky stuff on the blade...trash them!
