701 Fuel Quick Disconnect frame wear - alert!
« on: August 28, 2018, 07:37:29 am »
Hi

Following advice from advrider, I also noticed that there is a sharp edge on the left side of my bike frame that is rubbing/chafing the fuel quick connector. Just a heads up to check and put some protective tape to prevent extensive damage to the fuel connector.

I will try to take a pic later.

Hi

Yes, thanks for this  :thumleft:. Checked mine and already have some wear on connector - poor design with that sharp section of frame. Cable tied a piece of inner tube around connector which should protect from further damage. Will keep an eye on it.
