Hello, my name's David and I'm from San Diego, I've wanted to ride a motorcycle for a while now and really wanted more of a standard bike. Motoworld of El Cajon hit me up with a pretty nice deal and ended up buying a new SCR950 as my first set of wheels. Nice so far besides a fuel line break and I have a skid plate in the mail. Loving it!

Hey David, welcome, good to have you on board. Congrats on your new SCR950! I think it's a great first motorcycle (or 109th :) I am curious to know the story of the fuel line...

Congrats on getting your first bike! Can we assume you've been riding even before the purchase?
Nope, wanted to ride so I took the MSF course. I seemed to get the hang of it rather quick so I decided to buy something that looked like it'd suit me for years and years.

Fuel line break? Caution. The scr950 was not made for off road. Page 2-2 in the manual. 2nd column at the bottom.
No, it looks like someone forced it on with a screwdriver, perfect break at one end. I think it's the fuel line, definitely was gas leaking everywhere.

This is the hose, bottom left side of tank. Is that the fuel line? I'm brand new to bikes haha. Had a crack about an inch long from the connection at the plastic piece. Cruised over to my local bike shop and bought a foot of fuel line and transferred the heat shield over then used new clamps.

Yes, fuel. The cylindrical gizmo you have the hose attached to in the second photo is the pressure regulator just before the injectors.
The little plastic piece you refer to is a check valve and about $23! Don't break it by overtightening the clamp! =)
