What I did at first...and the first mod I did to my bike was to remove them QDs and install a set of straight barbed connectors. Cheep at less that $3.00.
Ran like that for years, just last year installed QDs.
Straight barbed connectors do make removing the tank a little harder. Once in the hoses they are very hard to remove so I never touched them,just disconnected the hoses at the fuel pump flange, much easier to remove there.
But then you also have to remove the fuel from the tank first. I didn't mind...I only remove the tank once a year and sure can syphon fuel without swallowing any....
Since you are going in there, consider a new fuel filter at the same time. Then you'll know it is good. And they are such a xxxx to replace, you probably don't want to go back & forth under that fairing and in that tank too often.
Don't know where you can find QDs over there but what you are looking for are 5/16". The two brands I have seen used are Jiffy-Tite and CPC.
Motobins or Motorworks??? Both in the UK.
