    alright somebody help me out here...
    My vk fuel lines at the rear in the tier well have rotted away An for the past month i’ve been trying to figure out where to get new ones as well as the charcoal canister that the lines hook up to.. so far I haven’t found anything that helps me out only diagrams on how to reconnect the lines at the fuel filler etc...
    I need some sort of help on where to get a new set up of lines or even something new that people have done as of it’s doing me that there’s noting online about it... there’s no where that I can find that sells new lines, even if I got the size of them I could sort something my self but I’m not good when it comes to how it all works...
    if someone could send me in the right direction that would be much appreciated...
    she’s a vk black 202 if that makes any difference which I wouldn’t think it would
    Any helpful options would be great
    Thanks

    go buy several meters of the tube stuff from Bursons or Repco
    then
    get a genuine VK manual (it is the only one I know of with a diagram of them)
    and have hours of fun replacing them :)


    that's what I did with mine

    Here are a couple of pictures regarding the fuel vent hoses, locations & connections. Not sure which model VK you have, but you should be able to work it out from these.
