Can I get away with replacing the Honda Hornet's rubber fuel pipe with a length of generic straight fuel pipe tubing or must I buy the genuine Honda part? The main concern is the possibility of restricting the fuel flow due to bends in the pipe reducing the inside diameter. This is the flexible rubber pipe that runs from the fuel tap down to the supply connection hoses to the carbs. It has a few bends and squiggles but nothing too drastic. A removable plastic armature leads it through a bend to fit under the carbies. Also do any other Hornet riders/tinkerers have any tips for getting the hose back on without the blue language? I wish the Japanese had bigger fingers.

When a new sensor and new globe failled to fix the problem I just a gave up. After putting up with hoping I was taking-off in first for far too long I finaly settled in to do a proper search. I discovered a loss of continuity for the neutral light somewhere in the wiring between the steering head and the junction connectors. Of course this is in the major wiring bundle that runs under the tank. Off came the tank and, rather than unravel miles of insulation tape, I spliced in a new wire. Easy! But in the process of putting it all back together I had bulk trouble reconnecting the fuel line to the tap spiggot. Due to some clumsy screwdriver probing I tore the hose and buggered up the aluminium choke slider. The slider came good after some blacksmithing but I don't trust fixing the fuel pipe with some wraps of insulating tape. .
