Fuel line clip needed

These things are easy to break getting the tank off!! Anyone know the part number for replacement? Another thread gave a number, but on ebay they look different from the below. Are they generic? Suzi fiche doesn't list them as separate item, so where do you go??? They're a 20c item for chrissakes.

I would go to an auto parts store and find a substitute.

2014 DL1000. Its the clip that secures the fuel hose to the fuel pump. The graphic shows the fuel hose as one complete item (same for the 1000) ie they may not sell the clip as separate item. Guess will try auto parts stores. Not as if a specialist item. Or a circlip or something failing that. Must have happened to others surely...snapping it getting it off....

They carry assortment pack, should find something to fit. Also, a lot of the auto fuel filters will have clips in the box, so ask to look through a few boxes, may find something there.

There are other clips in your system that don't get removed like the tank one, when I got my Wee the tank clip was damaged so I swapped it for one of the other clips.

I managed to source one from my local bike wrecker from a gixxer fuel hose. Yippee - didn't have to fork out a ton for full hose!

Glad that you are sorted, Gerard. Maybe a late query. With reference to after market parts referred to in posts #274 & #282 of https://www.vstrom.info/Smf/index.ph...,6105.270.html, would that fuel line connector not have been another option or would this part number only apply to the Gen 1 model V-Stroms?

Gert, the connector shown in those posts are different from mine so I guess are Gen 1. My fuel hose doesn't have a 90 deg bend either.

Thanx for confirming. So, the fuel line retaining clip part that you where looking for, would not be the same for your original fitting? Maybe some knows of an after market fuel line connector that could be used, should that clip (from your #1 post) ever break again. Who knows, maybe this info could help someone else in a similar situation.
