I have bought 5 meters of new pipe so hopefully I can replace the old ones later today. The only difference is the new pipe is marked at 20 BAR and the old at 10 BAR.
Most rubber can degenerate with the UV components of sunlight - are the locations you mention exposed to the sun?
I have a fuel problem too - http://www.rib.net/forum/showthread....848#post150848
Did you buy 7mm pipe or 8mm pipe for your 115 Yamaha?
