My name is Brian. i just bought a 2007 Victory Vegas 8 ball. i love the bike. I'm having one issue. When I started the bike a small but consistent fuel leak presented itself from what appears to be a fuel inlet hose behind the 100 cubic inch emblem.

Is anyone familiar with what hose I need to replace? Length, diameter, etc? Is it as easy as removing the fuel tank and then replacing the hose? Any help would be much appreciated. I want to get moving asap.

3/8" fuel injection rated hose. If replacing...buy at least 12" length. Most of the time you have enough slack to simply cut end of existing hose as that is where leaks frequently develop.

Removing tank:
Remove side covers, remove seat, remove rear bolt on tank, remove two tank bolts in front, lift back of tank slightly but do not hit upper triple tree with front of tank, disconnect electrical connection and loosen fuel line hose clamp.
Pull off fuel line, remove tank and set tank aside. Always easier when tank is low on fuel.

Good info on that hose NOEMTZ

OP see this link for buying new connectors, post # 138, start reading there .... Just check if the connector is still good, or the hose is still good .... No need for Victory fuel hoses, make your own
