Question about 2004 Honda VT 750 Shadow Aero
Service manual page 5-2 reflects a fuel tank hose (non fuel petcock) for CA 07 and later models located towards the rear of the tank underside and forward of the seat. Leakage is caused by the heat of the engine drying the hose which loses its elasticity over time. If the hose has adequate slack and is in good condition you can remove it, cut off the area that does not return to the original hose diameter and reinstall the hose and clamp. If there is no slack in the line purchase a replacement length at the dealer. Standard auto hose are a bit different in size and will either be lose (leaving the same leak problem) or be difficult to install with the potential of shaving some of the hose off and into the tank fitting. these smaller hoses may also constrict the proper design flow.
Good luck with your repair!
