Fuel line and pump power ext.
on: December 02, 2020, 12:44:54 AM
I'm looking for suggestions to remotely connect the gas tank so I can run the bike and adjust the throttle bodies. I already have the Tiger Tool.

Triumph sells the necessary tools:

Fuel line extension kit:   T3880001
Extension cable kit:   T3880123

I THINK that these are the correct parts, as seen on page 1.28 of my gen1 Explorer Service Manual

There was someone producing a kit for a while but he dropped it because there was little demand for it.

I just sold a set of these. The cable is cheap ($25-$30  I think) and you can make your own fuel line with hose from a DIY store and a couple of hose clamps

I figured you must have had a set.  :001:

If your your hose fittings are successful could you share a link for the fittings used? Thanks you.

You'll also need something to block off the 3 balance pipe outlets. I used a short length of fuel hose with a bit of metal rod jammed in one end

FYI, you can simpley reverse the fuel tank and sit it on the seat frame rails.  I put a towel under mine so nothing gets scratch.  All the connections will reach and work, including the fuel line.  I've usually got about a gallon or so in the tank to make it manageable, a couple of bungees keep things steady.
