    HELP!!!!

    I am going on a 4 day trip tomorrow. Came out to my griso and somehow the fitting for the fuel line that goes into the injector is broken.

    Anyone know of a quick fix?

    Re: HELP!!!!

    I don't see how. EFI fuel injection runs at pretty high pressures.. I wouldn't want to risk a JB Weld or similar repair in case it failed and you burst into flames

    I broke one of the 998's fuel hose fittings. Even at idle it could spray fuel a good 2-3 feet through the air.

    I have an extra bike you can use.

    Worst case.

    Just keep the rubber side down.

    You need to replace the whole line sadly. The pressure is too great to be able to patch safely.

    Cuz it’s Italian and you need specific olive oil to lube the fittings.


    Duh.

    Call Sanel/NAPA. They may have fittings to repair the ends. If all else fails, barb fittings and hose clamps. FI runs in the 60 to 80ish psi range

    It's not the line that failed, it's the fitting that broke off. The line is intact and holding onto the busted end of the fitting.

    the only thing that might hold is JB. tack with super-glue the ends and then glob over the crack

    That fitting is broken. Don’t JB Weld or epoxy or anything, it’s not repairable. As bergs said, you can try a male-male barbed fitting with hose clamps if you can get the right size, don’t know if it will deliver the same amount of fuel though.
