    does anyone know of a quick release fuel line/linkage to the bottom of the tank as I still can’t get the hang of the standard Honda one.
    I’ve done a search to no avail as I vaguely remember someone else doing something similar but can’t remember who.

    Cheers

    Has yours not already got a quick release connector?

    It’s got the Honda one with the two green plastic clips which for some reason on mine are a pain in the arse.
    I read on here that a race team did a proper quick release version

    @raphael. I see. Yes, they are a pain to get off. You can buy a special pair of pliers that squeeze the tags in or, as I did, use a small screwdriver to turn the tags around 90 degrees so that they stay compressed. The pipe then pulls off. At least, mine did. I did swear quite a lot though during this process - "Frickin' quick release/there's nothing quick about this/what's wrong with a Jubilee clip? etc."

    I bought a fuel line quick release for my race bike. Sometimes, I wouldn't be able to get the clip out and it would take ages.
    The quick release was pretty expensive, but it is worth every penny.
