Ducati Gas Tank Fuel Line Split in Half
Hi guys. I have a 98' Ducati ST2, and I have an issue inside the fuel tank: I discovered that a hose came off the fuel pump while I was riding about 2 weeks ago. After getting it back into my garage, pulling the bottom assembly out, and seeing that it was a disconnected hose, I decided to replace the old lines with new ones and obviously replaced the bottom o-ring. I put it all together (and yes, I replaced the hose line with submergible line), and maybe 2 days later: same damn thing happened again.
I got it back to my garage, pulled everything out again, and noticed that one of my new hose lines has literally split down the middle the entire way. I assume this is pressure, but I am somewhat at a loss here. Any suggestions? clogged fuel filter? bad fuel pump?
I'll try to get photos up soon.
