SOURCE: how do I replace a fuel line on 2004 bmw 1150rt?

You need to remove both side panels of the bodywork. there are quick disconnects on both fuel lines on the RHS of the machine. These are easily visible once the bodywork is removed. Then remove the glove box from the tank and remove the tank retaining bolt on the RHS of the bike. Disconnect both fuel lines and the electrical connector, and lift the tank off the bike. You will then have easy access to the fuel lines and clamps etc. Since you don't say why you want to replace the fuel lines, it may just be a leak at the quick disconnect which can be fixed with a new O ring.

Hello
Try cleaning the plugs first would be my suggestion, if that doesn't do it you may have air getting into the lines or a vacuum leak somewhere. Also it would be a good idea if you can't find it to have the BMW cycle dealer scan the system for fault codes.

O rings for fuel lines


Actually, the disconnect has TWO o-rings = one to seal it to the tank:

Needed only if there's a leak between the disconnect and the tank.

And one INSIDE the disconnect:

http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i274/uplandhunter/DSCN0058.jpg

Kinda hard to see in this photo, but look close down inside.
Also, when reconnecting fuel line, put a dab/drop of oil on the male fitting (too hard to do the female fitting, oil doesn't like to run UP-hill).

This will make the fitting go together easier and lube the o-ring to help prevent cutting it.
Also, it helps to oil the o-ring to help install it into the disconnect and the oil left on it will help as mentioned above.

You need a special to release the spring inside of the line. It's a fairly cheap tool that's made of plastic and slides over the line. You push the fuel lines together insert the tool while pulling back out.

    FUEL PUMP CONNECT LINES


    Your post soes not really say what the problem is. However I am thinking your are asking how to disconnect the fuel line from the pump. There is a disconnect tool you can purchase cheaply for the Fords. There are several sizes. This tool slides over the fuel line and presses towards the connection. Then it pushes a spring back to release the line at the connection. Any parts store sells these plastic pieces that are fuel line disconnect tools. Good luck.
