Oldironken Posted March 2, 2013 Share Posted March 2, 2013 Because of what i've read regarding split hoses i decided that while i have the tank off i'd better have a look at the internal hoses and replace the fuel filter. The hoses "look" fine on the outside, the ones on the pump itself have no #'s but they have a wide green stripe, including the U shaped one. The hoses coming from the top of the tank are marked V E5x10 BMW >NBR< 2103 with a yellow stripe. Are these the correct hoses since they don't appear to match the U shaped one? Is it safe to assume that if i order them from MAX here in CT i'll get the correct submersible hoses that can handle the ethanol in our gas? Or, should i ask for a specific number? Or would Beemer Boneyard be a better source to save a little $$ for the same hoses. Question #2 I read in a recent thread that a whooshing sound when you open the gas cap was a sign the the canister could be plugged or the return hoses may have collapsed. My bike has done that since i got it in June, i figured it was normal. This morning i pulled the canister and blew both directions through each of the tubes, it appears to be clear because it seemed like air was moving pretty freely. Does this indicate that the internal hoses in the tank are plugged? Thanks for the free daily education i'm getting! Ken Erman Link to comment
