Hey, everybody. What is the spring, or coil, called that goes around a fuel line to prevent it kinking at hard bends? I have been looking off and on for a couple weeks and haven't been able to finds it. I had one one my Honda Magna but it was stock. I need one now for my VTX. Thanks.

Just a few ideas.
Yikes. The stainless braided is more than I want to spend. Seems those coils are elusive.

How long a length needed?? Coxreels Spring Hose Guard - Fits 1/2 in. OD Hose
1/2" D x 2.5" L Maybe able to stretch the wire. They have more, 3/4" x 12" long SS.
Get a longer hose and make a larger loop.
How about a welding rod and tape the hose to the rod.
Get some flexible plastic electric wire harness tube and cover the hose and rod.

I'm planning to replace the 1/4" return line from the fuel pump to the tank. It has some bends right near the tank as it winds it's way past the cylinders.

Inflation isn't going anywhere, and I don't need stainless. I need a simple solution to prevent it from kinking. Am I missing something?
NOPE, just conversation from what I can tell.
Here is a concept.

Happy Saturday Brett!
Please Enjoy....
PEACE
