    Which Oil Lines

    I know this has been discussed but I canít seem to find it. I need to replace the oil lines on my 1992 VXR 650 and am wonder what lines are recommended? Suggested suppliers?

    Thanks in advance.

    I suggest a local hydraulic machines supplier
    They usually carry a good variety of sizes and types.
    And if you take a sample, they can provide a similar or better material.
    At least this is what I do.

    BTW some of them also can make or repair cables (throttle, steering, etc) , and much cheaper and faster than ordering one online.
    I basically use them for everything from car ac piping to brakes, fuel, anything that carries a fluid or a cable.

    Just go on Ebay and order some polyurethane hose. 1/8" ID for the small lines, probably 1/4" ID for the supply line from the tank. Yamaha changed supply hose sizes later on. You can backflush the inline oil filter. Don't forget to put the inline pop-off valves in with the arrows pointing toward the carburetor.

    Secure the oil lines with .025" stainless steel safety wire. See post #13 here: http://greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=286584

    Pre-fill the hoses with a baby dropper, or run pre-mix in addition to the oil injection until the hoses fill up.

    I replaced all of the lines yesterday and found that my fuel filter had a small leak from a stress crack so that was a good find.

    Thanks for the help.
