    1985 K100RS. Metal quick fuel hose disconnects.

    Looking for opinions on fuel line metal quick disconnects for my bike. I've never had quick disconnects on any bike so don't know what long-term durability is like. I am looking at a metal set from Euro Motoelectrics. Thank you.

    Iíve used these for the last 40,000 miles on my hack, Ď85 K100RS/eml, with no issues. No leaks and they function well. I did add a ninety degree bend to one of the fuel lines to give some clearance with a radiator hose. Good luck.

    From everything Iíve heard, the metal ones are great. The original factory plastic ones are a fuel leak waiting to happen. Fuel under pressure on the outside of a hot engine is not a good thing!

    I have the metal version of these on my oil-head. The only part that might fail due to age is an o-ring that easily replaceable.

    When I replaced ours on the K1200RS and K1300S I purchased the metal ones from Beemer Boneyard. They give MOA members a 10% discount.
    I don't know which ones you need for the K100.

    They sell the same CPC brand as Euro Motoelectrics.
    CPC is what BMW uses.

    Email them and ask about shipping to Canada. customerservice@beemerboneyard.com
    Normally they're fast to reply.

    Did you add the 90 degree coupling to the fuel return line? I was wondering about that one. The supply line to the fuel rail is pretty much straight down so no worries there. I need to take another look at my bike to see whether I'll need a 90 degree elbow on that return line right underneath the tank. It might make things a little easier.

    By the way, thanks for the Aeroflow screen. It sure made highway riding much more pleasurable this past summer. Far more effective than my LaminarLip.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    Thanks, Lee. And to update, they do extend the 10% discount to Canadian members.

    They do come with a spare set of o-rings from Euro Motoelectrics. They do sell o-rings separately, so I might get another set just in case. I'd rather have something I don't need than to need something I don't have!
