Excellent!!    Wow great photos you really know your cameras.   That is outstanding, now I see what it should look like.  Normally I just order all the parts on the Honda diagrams but they are no longer available, it seems.   I notice you use some german braided hose instead from the tank to pump, I have measured the hose connections OD at 10 mm, did you find this hose to fit the best?   I try to use Bulk Honda hose, 8mm is the largest I have seen, and I was wondering if that would work.   I have to reconstruct the entire set up since the last guy lost everything, or they deteriorated.   He tried using a AutoZone hose but that stuff can't make the 180 degree turns .. Thank you Spurlock for your help that is extraordinary work.  I'll post some photos of my project shortly ..

The braided tank to filter hose was on the bike when I bought it so I just assumed it was stock. Maybe it's an automotive hose?

The braided hose isn't stock, but it looks like a good solution to the OEM formed rubber hoses going brittle.

Aha, good to know. Maybe an auto parts guy would know of a source.

I would get some clamps on that braided hose. Rubber stretches over time and that snug fit will no longer be snug and will come apart (at the worst possible time).

Good suggestion
