Fuel line size for an 2003 1150 GSA

Hey everyone


Just trying to confirm what size the fuel lines are on a 2003 R1150 GSA, I can't quite figure if they are 1/4" or 5/16"?

Thanks for yer help

They're metric, 6mm. 1/4" will do, though.

One more question if I may??

What is your thoughts on replacing the plastic QD's with metal ones? Beemer Boneyard has the set for a 115 bux seems really $$$$$. Do you know of any other quality QD's that won't rape me on the cost???

I kept plastic QDs on the bike - never had a problem (>100k) but I kept a spare set in the tankbag, just in case.

More info on less-expensive replacement QDs/o-rings from McMaster-Carr; not metal but superior to OEM.
I have these on my bike:
