Hey guys, I checked out my fuel lines and sure enough there was some slight wear in the lines. I used a cable tie with light tension to just pull the lines away from where they were rubbing. Doesnt seem like it will ever be an issue on mine but I'm glad I checked it out anyhow. Thanks for the info here!!

Which line is that? The return or the primary output?

The older bikes had the lines running over the rear coil pack and rubbing on the bolt and such.

If you wire-tie them and put some rubber over them in that area you will be okay.

Just check them every so often to make sure they are okay .

Me Too

I know this is an old thread, but wanted to add to it. I have an '04 I bought used and have been riding since March. This just happened to mine. About 12k miles, and it looks like it's been a long term thing and finally wore a pinhole all the way through.
Unfortunately, the dealers are trying to sell me a full kit for replacement, rather than the lines I need. Quick fix, but eBay probably gets my business on this one.

Never too late to check. If you've got the cap off, look for wear through the line covers and replace as necessary.

Janazar.. Thanks for reviving an old thread. I went out and checked the lines on my '03 and sure enough it was starting to rub through the outer sleeve.
I cut 2 three inch lengths of 3/8 hose and put one on the lower hose where the rubbing took place and on the upper hose I slid that under the frame cross member below the fuse box in case rubbing was taking place there.

Nice plan. I'll put some tubing around the new one before I install it.

The new lines have different angles to fix the problem

Where did you disconnect the lines? If you disconnect the pressure line you won't have any fuel on the return side. Are you having trouble with the bike? When you turn the key on can you hear the pump run?

Yes I did take both lines loose...had a brain fart...thought for a minute fuel should come out both nipples on fuel flange...yes the pump pumps out the outgoing nipple...but not really very robust...got a feeling its way under 50 psi...will rig up a pressure gauge and hose tomarrow and get an accurate reading....bike sat for awhile in storage...put fuel treatment in tank...not much fuel in there though...ment to fill tank and forgot....then started bike up and sucked treatment into lines and injectors. ..probly ruined fuel pump...ran for 10 min. Then quit....wont start but will run on ether...any ideas ? Anyone ?

With lines connect remove cap shine flashlight in tank turn on key and run switch look in tank for misting fuel. Most likely a split supply line from pump to flange
