Hose on air box (size and replacement)

Post by Lukeh17 » Fri Jun 26, 2020 8:38 am

Hi,

Image

What is the small tubing called circled in the picture? Also, the rubber hose at the end which connects to the airbox unit is perishing and I was wondering what size it was and where I could buy a replacement?

Thanks

It's just a vacuum hose. Any 3mm vacuum hose will be fine, just cut to fit - https://www.amazon.co.uk/sourcing-map-S ... uage=en_GB

I use silicon hose and have also replaced all the hoses on the carb.
