Hi Guys,

The Vn800 I'm putting together has a non-OEM fuel line. In general I don't mind that, except for the fact that it seems like it's going to rest on the cylinder. that seems like a great way to melt a fuel line and start an engine fire.

I have two options. first, I could buy the OEM fuel line and spring. (Btw, I assume the "spring" is actually just used to keep the rubber line off the cylinder, right?) Or I could go with the eBay link below. I don't think it comes with the spring, but maybe it's been designed so it avoids the cylinder and doesn't need one. What do you think?

yes the spring on the fuel line is to protect the hose from touching hot cylinders, you could probably make your own spring or put the fuel line hose inside a larger hose that would act as a protector
