Omega Q/D's

I just received my Omega fuel Q/D's. And got a quick question.

Has anyone who installed these, attached or supported them in anyway to compensate for the added weight on the metal fuel tubes on the fuel tank/pump flange??

Quick disconnects

Perhaps those are different, but when I replaced mine w/metal fittings it was where the lines joined together.
The fuel lines just hang there and are joined by the connectors so there isn't any contact w/pump.
With the stiffness of the fuel lines and proper length, didn't seem to be an issue.
YMMV

Mine rest horizontal on the topside of the crank cover, I can just see them through the cutout. However, if you shortened the hoses I can see they will start to hang.

Is the weight of each pair of metal Q/Ds that substantial?

By just picking them up,the Omega supplied Q/D's are probably triple the weight of the stock plastic fittings.

I haven't weighed them, just leaving them bagged up til' they get installed.

Yes, Omega Engineering limited. email [email protected] or phone 0161 777 6622 and ask for Nicola.

You should try to get them with Viton O rings. If the lead time is weeks for Viton, no sweat just go to your local bearing/seal supplier like Blue diamond bearings. They'll sell you a bucket full for not many 's.

You have the correct part number.

Call Omega (Connecticut)at 1-800-622-2378. Ask for "Steve" @ ex.#2520.

I called last week(05/29) and they were in stock. Shipping took 6 days to the west coast.

Total cost was $77.10 inc. shipping.


I just installed them, and all I can say to the BMW bean counters is, "shame on you". It probably would have cost $5.00 more to do it right and not have so many owners thinking about a different bike the next time around!

I think it is a non-issue. Install 'em and forget 'em.
