I'm way late to check on this but thanks for the heads up. I found slight damage on one line and plan to repair it this week. Mines a 2003 with 12k. Thanks again.

When I run the bike in hot weather (warmer than 90 degrees) and in town riding the bike will act like it is vapor locking. It will idle perfectly, but when you open the throttle it surges like it wants to get up and go, then the fuel flow cuts back to idle. (I look like a teenager learning to drive a stick shift as it lunges every 4-5 seconds).
It happened on my way home Friday so I swung into the dealer. They let it idle in the shade for 15 minutes then took it our for a test ride and could not duplicate the same symptom.
Each time this has happened all I needed to do to remedy the issue is fill the tank. It immediately runs like a new bike. This happens at 3/4, 1/2, 1/4 tank levels so I am confident it is not fuel starvation. It is not dirty gas as it runs fine on the same tank of gas in cooler temperatures. The common denominator is the temperature. It is not dirty gas as it runs fine on the same gas when the temps are cooler.
My though here us that maybe the cam cover is heating the fuel lines to a temperature that would compromise the flow of gas???
Anyboy want to take a shot at this??? Ideas? Suggestions??
61516-07 is a kit with both lines. The other numbers are individual lines. It's still more than twice as expensive so I hope the kit comes with something other than the two lines. Maybe chrome or gold plating.ElrodontheV-Rod said:... I find 2 #'s 61504-01A & 61505-01A,these both supersede to 1 #,61516-07. ... BTW,the new lines are $62 each compared to $22 each for the old #'s,and are on BO till mid March. ...
