Fuel line quick couplings?

So I've been doing a bit of checking about on quick connects. I want to put some on my 919 for ease of tank removal. A dry break coupling would be preferred if the price is rational.

So, any of you with experience in fuel line QD's? I don't want to buy something and end up with garbage.

what would have you wanting to take the fuel tank off so much that would necessitate quick disconnects?

Seems like every couple weeks I'm messing in the wiring or something. Can't leave well enough alone.
Also, coming up is a valve adjustment, repaint, and a few other things where it would be nice to have the tank on/off easily.

Plus, I get pissed every time I disconnect the line and it's fuel everywhere.

Oh, and it just seems like a nice add on for a bike that I intend to keep.

Any reason NOT to put them on? I know on some cheap plastic ones there are complaints of unreliability, but then again, my S10 with a pile o miles on it has a factory plastic quick connect on one side of the fuel filter.

I have some cheap quick disconnects fitted on my 919 turbo bike, they have been on for a couple of years and are fine.

Its a long story but ive not had it running since about april last year!
I got it running after i rebuilt the engine and fitted the Dynojet hub and ignition control module, it just needs to go back to the rolling road to check/alter the map.......It was at this point that i got a new job and for the next 6 months i had only a couple of days off and was working between 90-98 hours a week
I bought another 9r on the off chance that i could get some riding time in, i bought that bike unseen and had it delivered but it was not how the seller described it
I have just about finished refurbishing that one, there is a build thread here........... hondahornet.co.uk • View topic - Project..... Trust no C***
So hopefully now i have a bit more spare time i will start to get back on track with that project
How are you doing with your 919t xrcajun?
