    Fuel Tank Hose Replacement

    My bike is a 2001 R1100RT with 104,000 miles. Fuel filter was changed at the dealer 33K miles ago, so it is due for replacement. At the previous filter change the tech said my hoses in the tank were good and didn't need replacement. But, I intend to do the filter change myself, so considering the miles and years, and since everything will be out in front of me I plan to change the hoses inside the tank.

    My question is which hose and how much of it. I already bought the BMW "U" hose. It looks to me like there are two very short pieces of pressurized fuel hose in the tank attached to the filter and the pump. There are also two lengths of vent hoses.
    I think the part numbers are:
    16 12 1 180 040 FUEL HOSE - 8X13 - the pressurized fuel hose - $26.56 per meter.
    13 53 2 325 737 HOSE RUNNING METER - 5X10 - the vent hoses - $21.28 per meter.
    16 14 2 325 808 U HOSE - $34.67

    The external vent hoses are:
    16 11 1 342 049 HOSE RUNNING METER - 8X5 and 16 11 1 342 050 - the 049 hose is plain black and the 050 hose has X X X X on the outside.

    Can someone either confirm the in-tank hose part numbers, and how much is needed?

    Thanks,

    Fuel Tank Hose Replacement

    I bought 1 foot of R-10 submersible fuel line from NAPA auto supply for $28.00. That is more than enough to do the job.

    Here's my cheat sheet of parts, although I can't guarantee accuracy:

    16 11 1 342 049 - 8mm vent hose, one meter

    16 11 1 342 050 - 8mm drain hose (X), one meter

    16 11 1 431 962 - CLIC-R 55/75 clamps

    16 11 2 313 574 - CLIC-R 55/80 clamps for later 8mm hose

    13 53 2 325 737 - 10mm internal hose, one meter

    64 12 1 378 285 - CLIC-R 66/100 clamps for 10mm hose

    16 12 1 180 040 - R10 fuel line (inside the tank) $22.50/meter

    13 31 1 469 781 - R9 fuel hose (outside the tank) $9.70/meter

    17 12 1 461 500 - 12.5mm threaded clamp

    13 31 1 460 928 - 13mm threaded clamp

    16 12 1 176 918 - Oetiker 16 crimp

    13 53 7 700 800 - Quick-disconnect (male, metal)*

    13 31 7 659 120 - Quick-disconnect (female, plastic)

    Each of the two smaller pieces are 1-1/2" long. Make sure you get submersible fuel injection hose. Most of the folks behind the counter unfortunately won't know the difference. The ID is 8 mm, but 5/16 is fine. Don't worry about the original one time use oetiker (sp) clamps, replace them with fuel injection clamps. Once again, the counter staff will probably steer you wrong and offer the common
    worm drive hose clamp.

    While you're in there consider:

    The. Fuel pump damper
    Fuel pump strainer
    Fuel filler O-ring
    Fuel pump plate O-ring

    Sounds like you've had inputs on the hoses. I bought oetiker pliers and clamps. They produce a good neat finish and don't have sharp edges like the clamps.

    Thanks All for the responses. Thanks Roger. I had planned to replace the O rings on both plates (Beemer Boneyard kit), as well as the pump strainer sock.
