Default Anybody replace there in tank fuel line?

Anybody replace there in tank fuel line instead of replacing the whole assembly? I have three locations that have contacted the inside of the tank and have worn down the outside of the tubing, and one has a pin hole.
I think the fix would be to use Gates SAE 30R10 Submersible Fuel Line, using a shorter length so that it doesn't hit the tank walls, and/or putting tie wraps on those contact points. Harley only sells the one line from the tank quick disconnect to the regulator/filter, the other line requires you to buy the fuel pump.

Fuel line tank output to pump item#19 P/N 62194-04
Retail: $55.92
Chicago HD: $44.74
Zanotti's: 36.35

Fuel pump assembly with regulator item#26 P/N 75218-04B

WS6, I haven't replaced my line, but that sounds like a good idea.

Where are you finding the Gates line??

I haven't found it yet, but looks like NAPA auto parts carries it. 5/16" @ around $20.00 a foot, a lot cheaper then replacing the factory assembly.

Info below I found from searching on Google:

That's really crappy how they do that. They should have designed it so it wouldn't contact the inside of the tank.

I am getting ready to pull the guts out of my tank and ran into this thread. I think I will replace this fuel line while I am in there. I have a NAPA warehouse nearby and they stock thsi Gates hose.

Better make sure the Gates hose is flexible enough. Those pvdf pump fittings wont take a whole lot of abuse if they're stressed.

Here's the low budget fix for the leaking factory fuel lines caused by fuel lines rubbing on the inside of the tank surfaces (A lot cheaper then having to buy the whole factory assembly). Made a shorter line from fuel filter housing output to tank output, original was to long and rubbed on top of the tank causing a pin hole, new line doesn't touch anything.

Also made the pump output to the regulator / filter housing shorter, this one fits snug around the regulator / filter housing, and when installed inside the tank it is snug in between the regulator / filter housing and the tanks fuel gauge housing, don't think that is going to vibrate and wear through like the factory line.

Also used constant tension fuel line clamps, similar to the original ones that are on the tanks output fuel line to the injector fuel rail. Didn't want to chance of screw type loosening from vibration, and didn't use the crimp type just in case the fuel line softened with age (constant tension fuel line clamps will self tighten). On the fuel line clamps, you will have to clip off the clamp tabs to slip it through the tank output threaded hole.

I bought two one foot Gates Submersible Fuel Lines for $39.90 from:

I agree, especially since they do know it is a problem.

That's great, as long as you don't mind doing it again. So are the Softails the same setup as the Dyna's? Does it look just like the photos above?

Just make sure you get the submersible line, it is printed on the hose.

Seems flexible enough that it isn't putting a load on the fittings, as well as not flexible enough to vibrate around to rub another hole thru the hose. Also I think these fittings are a little beefier then the one that goes to the external fuel rail.
