Oil Hose lines

    My Motorcycle is a 1973 Triumph Tiger 750

    I want to replace my Oil Hose lines, when I do my oil change before Winter storage.

    My current oil hoses are about 36 years oil & this is for maintenance reasons only.

    My old hoses do not have any markings on them & the shop book does not specify oil hose type to use.

    My current Oil lines appear to be 5/16 ID Black Fuel line.

    Per the shop manual: Normal Running Oil Pressure is 65/80 PSI & Idle Pressure is 20/25 PSI.

    I do not know the operating temperature of the Engine Oil.

    My question is:

    If someone could recommend a particular hose to use for the oil hose, it would help me out.


    I have an oil cooler, so I need about 11 feet of total hose for the oil lines, so I might want to buy a roll or rolls of hose rather than by the foot?

    The longest length of hose is 4.5 ft approximately.

    Fuel Injection hose might be overkill, but might be worth the extra cost?

    Auto Parts stores have regular fuel line rated at 50 PSI working pressure & (I think 250 PSI Burst?)

    Menards has some PVC fuel hose that has 175 Max working pressure but is only rated for 175 degrees F (SKU:6841335)

    I could try one of our sponsors like: Classic British Spares or Baxter?

    Anyway, I have been trying to figure out & could use some advice.

    Thanks, Don
