Fuel Hose

Hi

Can anyone tell me what the normal Inside diameter of fuel hose should be, I need a longer piece than standard 'pre-rigged' fuel lines and have been offered either 3/8ths or 5/16ths?
Does it make any difference?

Its for a 65hp Suzuki

Cheers

I had 8mm (5/16) on my DF90 if it helps! A bit tight on the fittings, nut 10mm was loose.

3/8 will be the right size for your engine.

But if you want to re-use the standard Soozook tank and motor hose fittings, you'll probably need 5/16".
That's what my old DT65 had......great motor
