They only needed to know what length supply hose I wanted. I got the
longest available. I usually run my 2000 Honda in a two man tent to keep it
out of the weather (and out of sight), the longer the supply line the the
further the tank.
I use two quick dis-connects, one at the tank regulator and the other at
the low pressure regulator.
As for the size of the line going to the carb, I use surgical tubing, very
flexible and easy to route inside the generator. Just a quick pinch and it
shuts down the unit instantly. Plus it seals well over the barb fittings they supply with the carb and its easy to remove.
One feature I wasn't crazy about was the size of the low pressure regulator
that supplies the carb. No room to conceal it inside the unit. I mounted it
on the outside of the removable service panel. I remove the regulator and install a spare panel
for transport and storage, and carry all hoses etc. in a separate bag.
If it wasn't pouring rain today I'd take some pics to post so
you could get an idea of how it goes together. Maybe later.
Consider getting a combination tach/hour meter. It will help you tune the carb and can be used
for service intervals. Once you've got an idea of how long you can run on a tank you can
anticipate your next refill. Both Honda and Yamaha offer them.
Hope this helps.
Are you using the petrol/propane conversion??
