    Ordered another type. If this fails probably have to replace the whole pipe with a generic type because an OE pipe is only available from Italy and itís £80+

    I don't trust those plastic fittings either, so bought plated brass fuel connectors for my RS. They were quite pricey but have been on and off several times with no problems at all.

    Yeah ordered some fuel line as well. This easy job has turned out to be a right pain in the arse.

    Those connectors may be OK for low pressure (eg. gravity feed to carbies). But for pressurised fuel injection systems, you need high pressure connectors.

    They are intended for fuel injection applications and some manufacturers have used them (e.g. BMW and Triumph), but these connectors tend to get fragile as they age and are notorious for breaking when disconnected/reconnected. Most pressurised fuel line fittings on modern cars are plastic these days as well, but they don't get disturbed very often and seem to be a bit more robust.

    That may be what they're intended for, but if they piss fuel everywhere then they're a failure. Not fit for purpose.
    Anything that leaks fuel is dangerous. I wouldn't have one anywhere near my bike.

    Not sure why you'd need a quick release fuel hose connector. There's already one fitted to the Benelli tank. Well, there is on my Tre-K anyway. I don't find it difficult to use. It's pretty easy to disconnect without the special tool. I just press the tabs in with my fingers. I didn't know there was such a thing as a special tool until I read it here!
